As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
Supercharger V6–Now ICS Compatible
A while ago, sometime last year, we published an article about a set of tools and tweaks called V6 Supercharger. Since the time of its introduction, it has generated tons of hype and there are several devs who have optimized these for various devices and even included them in some custom ROMs, making experiences far better for many people. However, there comes a time when an operating system must evolve and break free from its cocoon in order to survive in this fast moving technology world of ours. Because of this move, several apps and scripts tend to start failing or stop working altogether due to compatibility issues. This is where the creators of said apps come in. In this particular case, XDA member zeppelinrox, who created v6 has recently released an update for everyone out there who is using ICS devices.
It seems that the problem with ICS, at least according to the dev, is that the OS no longer reads ADJ values out of build.prop but rather has them stored and hardcoded in services.jar, which makes this script only be half as useful as it was before. The dev has provided a nifty way to actually change these values in services.jar, and it can be done from the comfort of your Android device, thanks to a web app created to “patch” the services.jar so that the script can take effect in full force. The webapp to do all this was created by XDA member blk_jack, so a big “thanks” go to him as well. Having said that, the second post on the thread below has a way of modifying these manually if you feel adventurous enough.
Well, if you were on ICS and miss your Supercharged experience, now is your time to relieve all that, and more. Please leave some feedback for the dev if you happen to use this.
ICS users still have to run the V6 SuperCharger script just like before! Use V6U9 RC6.9 or newer for decent launcher status detection!
