HTC Sense 4-Style Task Switcher for the Sony Xperia SP

If you find yourself a bit bored with the recent apps interface of your Sony Xperia device, I don’t blame you. The bland, square thumbnails that are available on Xperia devices aren’t much of an innovation over the stock Android look. But until the next iteration of Sony’s Timescape UI, we are left hoping for something more interesting to appear. But what can we do until then? Well, Xperia SP users can switch things up a bit with a Sense 4.0-styled Task Switcher mod.

Thanks to efforts by XDA Senior Member kuriboo, the Xperia SP now has a mod that allows users to experience the much better looking, 3D recent apps interface HTC devices running Sense 4.0 have. Once the mod has been installed, tapping the recent apps button greets you with full sized, horizontally scrolling 3D thumbnails of your recent apps. Additionally, your mini apps interface is left untouched. The mod comes in a handy flashable ZIP package. And based on community feedback, it is compatible with the official Android 4.3 firmware.

So if you’ve been looking for a way to switch up the look of switching apps on your Xperia SP, be sure to check out the mod in its original thread for more information.

Android M Code Name: Macadamia Nut Cookie

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop.
