LauncherAdvanced Keeps it Simple and Open Source

Home screen replacement apps are very popular in the world of Android. They let you change your theme, add functionality that stock launchers don’t have, and even increase performance from time to time. Whether it’s an old favorite or new hotness, aftermarket launchers will surely be popular for quite some time.

Now, there’s a new launcher that promises to be simple and quick. Best of all, it’s open source. XDA Forum Member EsromG5 released the app to XDA as a beta for users to test and try out. Like many launchers coming out, it aims to be simple, lean, and quick. Some of the features include:

– Two styles of grid
– Folders to organize apps
– Space in the dock icons on the 5th of 1
– Denicição size of the dock icons
– 5 homescreens
– Great speed in all versions of androids
– Wallpaper himself
– Supports any source ADW theme and Advanced (future)

Many of these features are seen on every launcher. However, one that’s particularly interesting is the support for ADW themes. As ADW has grown and expanded, some users have opted to go for the leaner launchers—especially on older versions of Android. With ADW theme support, users can keep their favorite ADW theme while running a launcher that’s a little more friendly for older devices. And of course, this is open source, so developers can check out and modify the code any time.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
