Change Languages Like a Boss with Quick Locale for Android

Do you constantly find yourself changing your mobile device’s language setting? Perhaps your employment status mandates that you interact with a linguistically diverse team. Rather than clicking through hordes of menus, XDA forum member DevJackey has developed an application that allows you to change your locale  (i.e. language) setting with one simple click on your Android device’s home screen!

With Quick Locale, appeasing a global audience has never been easier. With the customizable widgets, changing your device’s language is sleek and streamlined. In the words of the developer:

As the name suggests, this app is a quick way to switch the locale, or your phone’s language.

Features:

  • Launch the app from the App Drawer to instantly go to a list of languages. Click to change.
  • Widget Support! Create a widget on the Homescreen and preselect languages
  • One click to change language on widgets.
  • Able to launch full list of languages from Widget, if Full List was preselected.

This app should be compatible with most devices. If there’s any problems, leave me a response or an email. Please leave any suggestions or feature requests too.

Continue on to the application thread to get started! Also, be sure to leave the developer some feedback or feature requests while you’re at it.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
