[APP] HelixLauncher2

While browsing the Nexus One Forum, this application popped out at me. The application is a launcher and automatic rotator. It allows your menus to be rotated quickly, and the best part of it is the app launcher on the bottom of the screen. That is truly the best part about the application: just simply drag and drop apps to the launcher.

Modified Launcher2 features:
Based on Launcher2 from Cyan’s git
iPhone/Hero-like Scrolling
Fully fixed auto rotation
App Menu Button Long Press -> Quick Switcher
Up to 7 screens! NEW!
Long-press at desktop as an option
Drag & Drop bottom shortcuts NEW!
Commented Code (where I remembered I changed)

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management.
