Don’t Feel Like Scrolling? Launch Your Apps With Speedlauncher for Android

We are all familiar with speed dialers. You know, those apps tha allow us to forget about someone’s phone number and still be able to call that person by simply touching a button. The concept may be old but its implementation is far from being a thing of the past with new possibilities and uses. In this case, XDA member osbapat made a speed dialing application, but for apps in our device. This is a fantastic tool for those who hate crowded launchers and home screens and that need the ease and flexibility of launching an app with a single touch. The app works exactly the same way as your regular speed dialer: you assign an app to a specific number and you can launch it by “dialing” that one-two digit number into the dialpad widget. The only con would be that you may need to memorize speed dial codes for lots of things, but if you do not use that many apps on a daily basis, you should be able to manage.

The app is still under development and the dev is looking for feedback and ideas. Please share your thoughts and findings with the dev in order to make this app better.

Many of us install a ton of apps on our phone and have to constantly scroll up and down screens to find a specific game or app. Its pretty annoying at times. Speedlauncher is a different take on the launcher concept. Speedlauncher is an app launcher widget that launches any app by pressing a 1 or 2 digit shortcode. So for e.g. you might have shortcode 9 for Angry Birds, 18 for Facebook, 27 for Twitter and so on….

You can find more information in the application thread.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
