LG G3 QuickCircle Apps Ported to the LG G2 as QuickWindow Apps
OEMs have been coming out with some pretty innovative cases and folios for their devices recently, two of which being the the LG G2 QuickWindow case and the LG G3 QuickCircle case. Both cases feature a screen, which when connected to their respective devices, display a range of handy information that you can quickly glance at without having to go through the actual phone. However, because they’re two entirely separate accessories, the apps they run are not interchangeable between the two.
Wanting to get a taste of LG G3 QuickCircle apps on the G2, XDA Forum Member Ashrockr managed to port some of the LG G3 QuickCircle apps to the LG G2 QuickWindow case. The ported apps include the:

If you would like to check this out for yourself, be sure to head over to the ported QuickCircle app thread for more information.
