April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas. With many of these jokes being nostalgic and some even being functional it's easy to appreciate the spirit behind them. Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge In a reference to the Galaxy...
Do You Like Honeycomb’s Stack Effect? Customize One With Your Own Apps With App Stack
One of the appeals of the whole Honeycomb UI is the fact that some of its widgets are actually stacks of whatever they are supposed to enable. In other words, the widget for the Market, actually will show you a stack of the featured apps in the market, a stack that you can navigate through without ever opening the widget (think of the Sense Photo Album widget if you don’t know what I am explaining here). The only problem is that this neat transition effect can only be found on certain widgets, or at least this used to be the case until XDA member optic76 released his very own customizable stack widget. This app will allow you to place shortcuts to virtually any program or folder that you want in a stack. This is a great addition, particularly if you are not too keen on filling up your home screen with shortcuts for your most commonly used programs. Another handy feature is the ability to resize the widget, so your screen will not look empty in case you want to have a single widget in there.
Please leave some feedback for the dev if you find any bugs.
App Stack is a widget that allows you to launch any of your favorite Apps fast and easy.
Widget is simple to use and configure. You have the ability to add or remove any App you have installed. Once an App has been added to App Stack, the App can be launched from the App Stack Widget. You can move and resize App Stack anywhere on your screen (resize supported in 3.1 only).
You can find more information in the application thread.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
