It’s a Sidebar… It’s a Launcher… No, It’s Bubble Launcher!

We’re all pretty familiar with sidebar apps by now thanks to plenty of coverage of the numerous XDA-born apps offering such functionality. Each offering a slightly different set of features such as customization, being open-source, or the addition of floating settings, Bubble Launcher sets itself apart with a bubble-like interface.

Developed by XDA Senior Member bitstra, Bubble Launcher is a launcher that’s more like a sidebar app. Instead of being a traditional launcher alternative, it docks itself to the side of your screen on top of your current launcher. Swiping down brings up all your apps in a list, and swiping outwards or towards the middle of the screen will pop up an interesting bubble-like knob, which you can spin to get your app of choice. Swiping upwards will bring up the settings, allowing you to set the launcher’s activation spot, toggle animations, and change the size of app icons.

Bitstra has approached the sidebar experience with a unique twist. It may not be for everybody because of its ‘bubbly’ interface, but the circle app knob may spark some interest. It’s available to any user with a device running Android 2.3 or newer. For more information, be sure to check out the application thread.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
