Samsung Galaxy S III Launcher Ported to any ICS ROM

Not long ago we brought you news of HTC Sense 4.0 being ported to the Galaxy S II. This is one of the few times that HTC Sense has made its way onto a Samsung device. Porting Samsung’s Touchwiz, however, often takes a little less time and effort. As such, it was only a matter of time before users could enjoy the launcher experience of the Galaxy S III on any device.

XDA Senior Member rani9990 has released a beta port of the popular device’s launcher for use on any device running Ice Cream Sandwich. It is easy to install as well. Users only need to put the apk file onto their devices and manually move it to /system/app using their favorite root explorer. The port has been confirmed working on a number of devices, including:

LG Nitro HD
Samsung Captivate
Motorola Droid
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S
HTC Sensation
Xperia Pro
Samsung Galaxy S Plus
EVO 4G LTE
HTC EVO 3D
LG-P990
HTC Desire
HTC Rezound
HTC One S

Since it is a beta, it’s no surprise that some users are reporting the occasional problem—nothing too serious, just a few quirks here and there. For additional information, go to the original thread.

PhotoMath: A Math Beginner’s Dream App

To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

Which App for iPhone Do You Wish Was on Android?

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
