Slide2Wake Brought to the Galaxy Nexus
We previously brought you news about Slide2Wake awhile ago when it was released for the EVO 3D. For anyone who doesn’t know, Slide2Wake is a simple application that allows users to slide their finger across the screen in order to wake it up. This is perfect for flashaholics who’ve somewhat damaged their power button, and can’t figure out a way to unlock their phone. It’s also just convenient, as it requires no button presses. Simply remove from the pocket, swipe and go.
XDA Senior Member bponury recently got a hold of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and has been kind enough to port the application. While the OP states that it is for the GSM Nexus, it has been reported as successfully working on the LTE Nexus as well.
This version’s only drawback compared to the EVO 3D version is that it doesn’t yet support all Galaxy Nexus kernels. It does, however, support many of them, and it’s very likely that support for the remaining kernels will be added eventually. Otherwise, the app works just like it should—allowing users to swipe their screens on at will. It’s pretty simple, but also pretty awesome.

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
