Lucid Launcher Enters Beta and Brings Some New Goodies

Do you remember Lucid Launcher? We featured this indie launcher a few weeks ago right here on the XDA Portal. XDA Senior Member powerpoint45 made a video series detailing its creation. And then on Valentine’s Day, the developer decided to update the application and add some love in the form of a few new features. The application also changed its status from alpha to beta, so it should be considerably more stable.

What is new in the new version? The application now supports 3 screens, and scrolling vertically switches between your work spaces. This can help you sort your applications, games, and widgets. The built-in browser also offers some new features and supports tabs. And these two new functions are only a small sample of the new features that have been added with this release.

The launcher is still simple and resource efficient, so even on older devices it will perform well. Powerpoint45 and his crew also made a website for the launcher. It’s still not ready for widespread release, but many core features have been added, so you can easily track the progress either in the XDA thread or the official website.

You can find the launcher by visiting its application thread. So if you are looking for a simple, minimal, and speedy launcher, you should definitely give Lucid a shot.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team. The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion.   What...
