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!

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
