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...
Supercharger Sister Script, Ultimate Jar Power Tools, Brings Even More Supercharged Goodness
Over a year ago, we first brought you news of the Supercharger V6 script. Ever since, it has only gotten bigger and better. With a feature list, change log, and supported devices list too long to list, it’s definitely one of the most often used optimization scripts on XDA. Now, a sister script has been released to bring even more tweaking goodness.
XDA Recognized Developer zeppelinrox, developer of Supercharger V6, has released Ultimate Jar Power Tools to its own thread. Like Supercharger V6, the Ultimate Jar Power Tools script adds various features to a device, along with quite a few settings tweaks. A quick rundown of the features include:
Mod 1. Jelly ISCream for ICS and Jelly Bean. This will SuperCharge Your Home Launcher and ADJ/OOM Priorities! Bonus: You pick launcher strength!
Mod 2. Maximum MultiTasking Mods for Froyo and above has 2 parts.
a. -=Maximum Overdrive=- This lets you run up to 70 hidden apps instead of the default 15 (RAM permitting) without breaking the lowmemorykiller!
b. Time Killer Killer. This tries to bypass the 30 minute service inactivity limit by increasing it to 24 hours ;^] Mod 3. Non-Sense App Limit for Sense 4 and above (Not needed for Sense 3.6 and below).
This eliminates additional restrictions introduced with Sense 4.
a. Visible tasks increased from 8 apps to 50 (RAM permitting)
b. Something called “HTC Recent App Fusion” is rendered a non-factor.
The Non-Sense App Limit is something we’ve actually we’ve talked about before. Essentially, this mod delivers everything you could ever want in the field of multitasking. Do keep in mind that you can only run as many apps as your RAM can hold. That means that devices that came out recently with 2GB can actually use all 2GB of it now.

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...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.
