iPhoneToday Updated to v1.4.9

Since iPhoneToday was picked up by user tronikos, it has been receiving regular updates again. iPhoneToday is a homescreen replacement / application launcher that looks a lot like, yes you guessed it, the iPhone interface.

iPhoneToday v1.4.9

  • Fixed degraded quality of images of previous release (image resizing is done by the Windows Imaging API again).
  • Added RoundRect option (for now only in the XML, no dialog yet) to display a black rounded rectangular behind the text (like Android).

iPhoneToday v1.4.8

  • Using LPNG library (an extremely light-weight library – it just adds 6KB) if imaging API fails (mostly helpful for PNDs where imaging API is often missing). This allows now all devices to load and display transparent PNG icons.
  • Huge memory savings compared to v1.3 when AlphaBlend is disabled (32bit icons are now converted to whatever the screen supports, usually 16bit).
  • Fixed text labels being 1-2 pixels left of the center of the icons.
  • Fixed background color of options dialog to be the windows default color for menu backgrounds.
  • Added –keyboard command to show/hide the keyboard.
  • Only for PNDs: added a help button (question mark) on the title bar of the options and icon settings dialogs (next to the OK button) that toggles the appearance of the keyboard.
  • The 3-letter abbreviation of the day of the week is now by default displayed in the language of the user locale.
  • Converted the included pressed icons from gray scale to true color since LPNG only supports loading true color PNG images.
  • Resized the bubble icons.
  • Added a warning that scrolling will be slow when AlphaBlend is enabled on devices that do not natively support it.

Continue on to the application thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
