Sense-Like Android Launcher

HTC Sense is HTC’s UI overlay that is built into OEM Android Roms, and by rooting your phone, you have the option to remove it. Some people like it because it is feature packed but others suggest that it also is a big memory hog.

Why not have the best of both worlds? XDA member JAguirre1231 has done a little modification to ADWLauncher and given it the sense look. Currently this mod is only for MDPI devices only.

To install it you need to:

  1. Download and install the Sense.Apk
  2. Install ADWLauncher.Apk
  3. Download and extract the .zip file attached to the thread
  4. move the adw_settings.xml and adb_backup.db to the root of your SD card.
  5. Import the files using the ADW restore feature.

Seems easy enough, so if you are interested, then look at the thread for more detailed instructions and give it a try.

Good luck!

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
