Installing the Galaxy S3’s TouchWiz Launcher on your Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc or Arc S

by: Carl ParkerJune 5, 2012

The Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 arrived with a smoother, updated version of TouchWiz.  Many got envious.  But, not for long–because devs immediately went to work with porting it to the other Android devices, especially for non-Samsung phones.

Just recently, a port of the Galaxy S3’s TouchWiz launcher was successfully created for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc (LT15i) and the Xperia Arc S (LT18i), allowing owners of the said phones to enjoy some TouchWiz smoothness.

Users of the ported launcher have reported overall smoothness and lag-free performance.  The ported launcher is also expected to work only with ICS-based ROMs. If you want to try the amazing [...]

Galaxy S3 TouchWiz launcher ported to the Galaxy S2, working (almost) like a charm

by: AdrianMay 25, 2012

I know that you just can’t get enough of the news about the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S3, especially when talking about its software, hacks, custom ROMs, and so on. That’s why we’re glad to tell you that the handheld’s TouchWiz UX launcher has been ported to the Galaxy S2, courtesy of a skilled member of the XDA-Developers forum.

The news comes less than a week after the Galaxy S3’s stock ROM has been leaked, a few days after the first custom ROM popped up on the web, and just two days after the S Voice app has been made to work on pretty much any Android device out there.

Now that’s what I call serious involvement from the independent Android developers [...]

Chameleon Wants to Redefine the Home Screen. Samsung and HTC, Look and Learn

by: Bogdan PetrovanMarch 10, 2012

For most manufacturers, the home screen is the most important part of the Android interface. Why? Because, on the home screen, they can easily apply their own branding and style, and, in theory, differentiate their devices from the sea of competing Android products. The need for differentiation is understandable, but unfortunately, for end users, overlays like TouchWiz, Sense, or Motoblur are just sources of slow updates, bloatware, and poor performance.

However, it’s not like the home screen of vanilla Android is a major step forward when compared to the manufacturers’ overlays. All you get in the stock version are apps and notifications, plus the clock widget. For [...]

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 TouchWiz Update Brings Added Features

by: glennAugust 8, 2011

If you’re an owner of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, then you’ll be glad to know that an upgrade to the interface is now available. The TouchWiz update adds new functionalities and streamlines the whole navigation to make your Android tablet use that much easier and more enjoyable.

 

Interface customizations are usually scoffed at, particularly by long-time Android tablet users. The TouchWiz update, however, is a different story. With it comes a few  nifty changes that are sure to highlight exactly just how powerful the Honeycomb 3.1 OS is.

At the bottom of the screen you can find Live Panels, a taskbar-like application where functions like the [...]

Samsung Behold II for T-Mobile review posted

by: Michael OrylNovember 17, 2009

Samsung Behold II for T-Mobile USA

I posted my review of the Samsung Behold II for T-Mobile USA earlier this afternoon.  A real mixed bag on this one.  I like the hardware quite a bit, especially the camera and the AMOLED display, but the software leaves much to be desired.

There are some real wonky text input bugs, for example, and the TouchWiz homescreen is just a flat out fail.  Some of the stuff that Samsung added to Android works pretty well, or at least well enough, but the homescreen just doesn’t cut it.  It has all of the same problems that other TouchWiz devices have – it’s hard to keep organized, counter-intuitive, and [...]

Samsung Behold II to sell for $229, come with TouchWiz 2.0

by: Michael OrylNovember 12, 2009

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, but I’ve been pretty sick.  That sickness is the reason I am not up in New York right now picking up a Samsung Behold II, in fact.

But there are other people there, of course, and the word from my friend Eric at PhoneScoop.com is that T-Mobile is going to sell the Behold II for a pretty high price: $229.  We’re told it will be available to the public on November 18th (next Wednesday) and that it will also feature Samsung’s TouchWiz 2.0 user interface, which means it won’t be dead boring like the Moment for Sprint.

I’ll have a Behold II tomorrow if all goes well, so look for a video soon.
