Android was always considered as a mobile operating system. While phones and tablets are over 95% of devices running Android, developers put lots of effort to make Google's OS available for other platforms. You've probably heard of Bluestacks, which brings the Android world to PCs, Macs and TVs. The American company is just one of the many brands that ports the Android OS to personal computers. In June 2014, the Console OS team launched its Kickstarter campaign for a system that...
TaskFacade 4 Optimized for HD2
Many of you might remember a task switcher called TaskFacade 4 (previously known as Dynamo 3 and developed by xda member gps-lover). This was developed to resemble the task switcher that came with the original Sony Xperia. Due to personal reasons, the developer had stopped development for this wonderful app. However, not too long ago, xda member spacepants picked up the project where it was left off, decompiled it, fixed it, and ultimately optimized it for the HTC HD2. This app makes good use of the HD2 graphic capabilities and it is considered, by many, to be one of the best task switchers available for WM.
Just got an HD2, and after looking for a good task manager found this awesome app TaskFacade 4. Unfortunately the dev appears to have stopped development for it, and the HD2 is just too fast for the app. I was bored, so I decompiled it (it’s .net so that’s easy) and made some minor fixes.
Anyway, here’s what I fixed:
- Fixed a memory leak that occurred when an app was started and closed outside of Task Facade.
- Cleaned up Layout config page.
- Cleaned up config file loading to minimize potential errors due to old and incompatible config files.
You can find the download and more information in the application thread.

There are many things to love about the mobile industry, and when it comes to Android, I think one of them is that there's something for just about everyone. The OEMs of today cover many different demographics for those that want this, or that. And things like a phone's design aren't excluded either - but what I think is really interesting about this last bit is just how apparent the different approaches are. I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
