Xposed GEL Settings 1.7 Brings Icon Pack Support and Dynamic Home Button!

The Google Now Launcher, more commonly referred to as the Google Experience Launcher or simply GEL, is a popular choice among the XDA community. It’s simple and powerful, and it puts Search and Google Now at the forefront. While originally developed for release alongside the Google Nexus 5, it has now been made available for all devices running Jelly Bean or KitKat.

Despite its popularity, the Google Now Launcher is hardly customizable. To combat this, however, XDA Senior Member theknut created an Xposed module that added some goodies to GEL. After receiving a major update that revived the module following an incompatible Google Search update, Xposed GEL Settings has now been updated to version 1.7.

So what does Xposed GEL Settings 1.7 bring to the table? With this update, theknut added an option to use custom icon packs for your favorite applications. Version 1.7 now also offers close integration with Today Calendar, which can use different icons for certain days of the week. In addition, the update also brings a dynamic home button, whereby the center button on your on-screen navigation bar can switch to the app tray when you’re on your main home screen.

The latest version of Xposed GEL Settings can be found in its development thread, with all the details pertaining to the 1.7 update available in this post.If you are a Google Now Launcher user and constantly wish to bypass its limits, head over and give the module a try.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
