Change Your Sense with CHTS (Cookie’s Home Tab Scheduler)

XDA member MichelDiamond has come up with a very nice application for those of us who are never satisfied with the look on our devices and yet hate having to update  the look every time. CHTS is an app to automate change in the look of your Sense interface. This app is designed to do a few things: help you create many fantastic looks for your Sense w/ Cookie Home Tab wielding device, to be able to use them without having to install a bunch of cabs every time you want to apply a theme, and to rotate between these themes with ease. The app will remember every setting including shortcuts, wallpapers, switches, and more.

This is a very nice complement to the Sense UI, and one that was long overdue. If you want to take the beta for a spin, make sure you read all the information available. The dev has put some very good guides together on how to use this app.

Do you eat every day only cutlets? Even if it’s your favorite food? No?
So why do you have the same Sense theme every hour of every day? You don’t? You change it often?
Then you are aware of the effort needed to change a theme, or to change a clock or style, or to revert back to the former one.
You know, that you forget which .cab files you installed. You know how sometimes they interfere with other .cab’s.
And you know that your Sense is sometimes messed up, and needs a full reinstallation.
If you install CHT (Co0kie’s Home Tab), are you reluctant to install the skinning .cab’s for Sense again because of these problems? And do your system settings not really suit the new installation? And do you need different views and WinMo-Settings at work, at home, in the car, in your spare time, or at night – but there is a lot of manual maintenance needed to do this, and so you make it all-for-one, not optimal, but without too much effort?

You can find more information in the application thread.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
