NLauncher is a Small and Cute Launcher
When you think about a launcher, Nova and Apex are likely the first choices that come to mind. That said, there are some smaller projects out there, and such are great opportunities for new developers to start their journey with Android coding. Some time ago, we talked about a video tutorial by XDA Senior Member powerpoint45 that showed users how to make a launcher. This knowledge was used by the developer of the next project, XDA Forum Member naresh babu.
In naresh_babu’s launcher, you won’t find a spectacular UI, tons of features, and freemium options to unlock. Rather, NLauncher is an easy-to-use, minimal launcher that uses swipe gestures to access your favorite apps, settings, and wireless options. The launcher also allows you to easily set up a list of frequently accessed applications for direct access.
It’s really nice to see that applications like these are released on XDA, as we all are here to learn. The launcher can be found in its original thread, where you can find the newest APK.

At its heart, the phone follows on the Xiaomi philosophy by providing great specs at a great price. Talking about specs, the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro is a marked improvement over the Mi Note. While the dimensions and screen size remain the same, the resolution has received a...
Google is now sending out the first wave of invites to its new wireless service, Project Fi. Users are already signing up and have shared the process with us. So far, it is clear that Project Fi users can have their Google Voice number transferred across if they wish, which will automatically move their Google Voice credit over as well. What we have learned so far is that after a Voice number is transferred you will lose some functionality, but you will...
