360 Launcher: A Different Kind of Launcher

Many times in this world, products are developed in a specific country or language, and are unavailable to users outside of that area. It doesn’t happen as often in the world of mobile applications, but is still an issue that we can face. XDA Senior Member melvinchng encountered the same issue.

An official tester of the Chinese 360 Launcher, he decided to translate the launcher into English so that the members of XDA can enjoy it. The app is feature laden including:

•Download theme from its site
•Download custom lockscreen from its site
•Download wallpaper from its site
•Quick launcher widget (power widget)
•Built in clock widget
•Built in power saving widget (more setting requires 360 Battery Guard)
•Folder in Home screen
•Folder in Launcher
•Unlimited apps in a Folder
•Built in lockscreen
•Built quick system setting widget
•Icon transition animation in Home screen
•Icon transition animation in App Drawer
•Hide application
•Built in lockscreen with theme
•Drawer and charts has iPhone remove jitter effect
•Icon background
•Transition animation in app drawer
•Transition animation in home screen
•Launcher has tab to Apps, Music, Pictures and Video.
•Custom app in dockbar

The launcher is constantly being updated and has extensive changelogs due to it being in beta, but head on over to the thread here and give it a spin. Your friends will be jealous.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
