Instantly Access Apps from Anywhere with SAO Launcher

XDA Senior Member Xlythe  brings a navigation system that works alongside your favorite launcher to give you instant access to text messaging, contacts, apps, and more. With a simple swipe in the direction of your choosing from any screen, SAO Launcher flows down the side of your screen to reveal five menu orbs that allow you to launch some of the most common Android features. The launcher allows you to place calls and send texts from within its user interface, and without the need to return to the home screen. Users can choose to also install SMS Extension module, which allows for popup SMS notifications.

Depending on preference, users can choose to launch the navigation system by swiping down from the top corners, from the sides, or from any of the top edges. Options are also available to filter and sort contacts and apps so only the items you want available appear. Due to animation restrictions, SAO Launcher is only available for Android 4.1 and up.

As an introduction to his application, Xlythe has disabled ads for XDA community members who download the APK from the original post. Ads will be re-enabled on Oct. 1. The standard free edition with ads and a paid addition that disables ads can be found in the Play Store. Visit the application thread and watch the demo video to learn more.

Project Fi Invites Are Rolling Out

Google is now sending out the first wave of invites to its new wireless service, Project Fi. Users are already signing up and have shared the process with us. So far, it is clear that Project Fi users can have their Google Voice number transferred across if they wish, which will automatically move their Google Voice credit over as well.   What we have learned so far is that after a Voice number is transferred you will lose some functionality, but you will...
