Xposed GEL Settings Updated to Change Google Now Launcher to Android L Style
The Google Experience Launcher has become one of the most popular home applications on Android. It’s used as the default launcher in every Google Nexus and Google Play Edition device, and it’s found its way to many more thanks to various XDA members.
Although many care for the Google Now Launcher, it lacks quite a lot of relatively standard configuration options. XDA Senior Member theknut decided to do something about it, and used Xposed Framework to fix this with his module Xposed GEL Settings.
Not too long ago we talked about a theme that modifies your OS to look like Android L. If your ROM doesn’t support the theme engine, you can use theknut’s module to change the Google Now Launcher’s look to match the Android L style. The module changes icons, folder preview, drawer icon, and even animations, so it’s a complete solution before Android L reaches official status.
Like every Xposed module, XGELS requires a device to be rooted in order to work. Ensure that you have the newest version of Xposed and SuperSU installed before trying this module out.
If you are a Google Now Launcher user, you can add some Android L material design to the GEL. All you need to do is visit the module thread and give it a shot. You can find a complete changelog in the following forum post.

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...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates. However, the phones did not pick up as big a response as Google hoped. Now, as per a report by The Economic Times, it appears that Google is rethinking their strategy towards Android One in India. The first gen Android One devices focused on first time smartphone users, but were flawed in...
