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:
- Digital clock
- Call log
Installation is very straightforward, requiring you to simply download the provided ZIP package and flash it through a custom recovery on your G2. It should also be noted that this port is not compatible with the official 4.4.2 firmware as of now.
If you would like to check this out for yourself, be sure to head over to the ported QuickCircle app thread for more information.

Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
