HTC Sense-Style Task Manager for the Galaxy S III I9300

While most Android enthusiasts (including many members of our smartphone community here at XDA) frown upon the idea of custom UI overlays by device manufacturers, they include certain visual or feature enhancements at times that add to the overall user experience for many. Over the course of the past few versions, HTC Sense has been making a transition towards minimalism. This has been done by getting closer to the stock Android experience, while still offering its signature fresh and bright look and feel.

One such feature that many enjoy is the task manager interface. However, since this is an HTC Sense exclusive, owners of other devices have thus far been out of luck. Luckily for Samsung Galaxy S III owners running the stock XELLA firmware (or custom ROMs derived from it), you can now get the same style of task management and switching UI thanks to XDA Member Tamerlan2009.

This HTC Sense-style Task Manager mod supports both portrait and landscape views for the task switching interface, offering you large previews of your currently running and recent apps, complete with app names and icons under the previews. It also features a nice shiny reflection to add some visual oomph. From the task switching interface, you get quick access to Task Manager and Google Search, and can also kill all the currently running apps in one go (the usefulness of which is debatable, but that’s a different story).

As mentioned earlier, the mod is intended for Galaxy S III I9300 running the stock XELLA firmware, as well as custom ROMs based on it. You can give it a try by visiting the forum thread.
