New Google Voice With Widget Extracted from G2 ROM
With the recent news of the HTC Vision aka G2, and the even more recent news of the G2 Test ROM leak, XDA forum member MvP77 has pulled the new Google Voice (with widget), from the leaked ROM.
With news that Google will be implementing call integration into Gmail, the inclusion of this widget seems more significant. The widget let’s you check your GV balance, settings and toggle on and off.
XDA members have reported that the widget is working on their Android devices, however if you are running a Sense ROM, then the phone button will not work. This is because the test ROM is based upon stock FroYo. Unfortunately, it’s not a simple case of extracting and then installing the stock FroYo dialer into a Sense build, since the Sense dialer is embedded in the Sense frameworks.
To download the apk, head on over to the forum thread.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
