Everything.me Launcher is ‘Everything You’

With our mobile devices being some of our most personal pieces of technology, and the launcher as one of the most frequented part of the device, it is with no doubt that we’d want to personalize our launcher to suit our unique taste in music, philosophy, feelings, and thoughts. That’s why we have that particular wallpaper or spend so much time customizing those widgets, and why Facebook Home exists. Unfortunately, the aforementioned launcher was a less than average attempt at doing so, forcing us to trade our own wallpapers and widgets for bloated and pixelated faces of people we haven’t spoken to in years.

But lose no hope, as there’s now a launcher called Everything.me that does it right. Shared with us by XDA Senior Member iJohnny, Everything.me aims to be as dynamic and adaptable as it can without going over the top, packing several unique features we’ve never seen before. One of them is the ‘What’s on your mind?’ search bar ever present in the center home screen. By searching any keyword that pops up in your head, be it News, Funny, Social, or Bahamas, the launcher will transform your center home screen into an app drawer-like interface displaying anything that may be related, such as apps and songs. It’ll also pull up any apps that you don’t have installed, which if they interest you, can be accessed without even an installation.

Additionally, Everything.me cleverly organizes your installed apps and apps of interest into various categories called Smart Folders, allowing you to reach, lets say, all social networking apps by opening the Social smart folder. And don’t think there’s no smart folder for a certain interest or taste, as the list is very extensive, ranging from astrology and history to restaurants and shopping and (almost) anything imaginable in between. A custom image of your chosen category serves as a background to the smart folders, which is an additional pleasant perk.

Despite still being in beta, Everything.me is possibly the most unique and personalized launcher I’ve come across. The  dynamic nature of the launcher thanks to its ‘Whats on your mind?’ feature and smart folders is a welcome breath of fresh air at a time when our smartphones and tablets are more personalized than ever. If you’d like to give this a go, you can download the launcher and find more information in the application thread.

Microsoft Reaches Pre-Install Agreement With New OEMs

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
