Full Touch Recovery Released for Some Sony Ericsson, Huawei and Samsung Phones

Choosing your recovery is a big deal. For most people, they’re luck enough to get at least one good one and it’s usually ClockworkMod Recovery. On other devices, though, users can have two, three up to half a dozen choices for their recoveries. For some select devices, they now even have the option for a touch recovery or a recovery you can use sans the hardware keys.

XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD and XDA Senior Member Napster or Team UtterChaos have been working hard to get their special blend of touch screen recovery out to as many phones as possible.

Currently, those carrying the Samsung Galaxy SL, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and the Huawei Ideos 6 can be a part of the touch recovery action.

The recovery features a very appealing tiled interface with some nice theming and all the features you’d expect out of a recovery. Additionally, you can use the hardware buttons if you’d like, you can tap directly on options or you can use touch buttons to navigate your way around the interface, giving users pretty much every possible usability option there is. Have we mentioned it looks really pretty? And with even more devices to come, there seems to be no end to the releases to keep your eyes peeled in the forums.

For those who have the Samsung Galaxy SL who want to give it a shot, you can check out the Galaxy SL thread, Xperia Play users can head on over to the Play thread, Xperia Arc users can hit up the Arc thread and for those toting the Huawei Ideos 6, you can find your version in the Ideos Thread. All threads contain additional info, download links and a video with a really nice soundtrack showing you how it works.

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.
