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.

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
