Touchcontrol Updated to Support Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2013)

We first talked about Slide2wake with Touchcontrol in June of last year. Back then, the app only supported the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and many users wanted this functionality extended to other devices. XDA Recognized Developer bponury released a substantial update to his Touchcontrol app, adding support for the Nexus 4  and the Nexus 7 (2013) as well.

The update also brings new features to the app that might interest you: It now supports slide2locktouch2wake, and doubletap2wake. These features are normally found within several custom kernels, but now it’s built into an app that is capable of working on basically any kernel that is close enough to the stock kernel.

In order to use the app’s features,  you must be running a rooted Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, or Nexus 7 (2013). You may also need to flash to a different kernel if your current kernel is not yet supported.

While there many be some battery drain by keeping the touch screen active at all times, user results are thus far mixed. As reported by the developer:

 this might bring some drain, some users report quite a big battery drain some not, I will address this issue in some time. Check yourself how much an issue it is for you.

Head over to the application thread  to get started.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

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....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

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...
