MultiPack++ Makes Post Install Customization a Breeze
Most of us have at one time or another have flashed a ROM which required the core Google apps (GAPPS) to be flashed separately from the ROM itself. Many of you have probably also taken steps to immediately customize whichever ROM it is you are installing. It’s this process that has prompted XDA Recognized Contributor tantrums has to create MultiPack++, a package that allows you to do both in one easy step.
MultiPack++ is a separate zip that is to be flashed after any CM/AOKP/AOSP ROM exactly as you would with a regular GAPPS package, the difference here is that it’s made using the Aroma Installer and therefore allows you to pick exactly which of the Google Apps you want to install, while at the same time giving you the option to remove any system apps you don’t want. As if that weren’t convenient enough, it also includes numerous other features such as the option to install different launchers, fonts, and even a GPS fix for those who may require it.
The current version is based on the latest GAPPS package, and available from it’s forum thread. So check it out if you think this might save you a bit of time in tweaking your newly installed ROM.

Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
