[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)

Devs Beware – Automatic Backup Privacy Risks

One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of.
