Google Nexus 7: How to activate the full tablet UI instead of the phone UI

by: Ken EastJuly 16, 2012

Only a few have felt and experienced Google’s latest Nexus 7 tablet, but modifications and hacks for the highly anticipated tablet have started to sprout like mushrooms. Among these modifications is a mod that lets users experience a full tablet user interface (UI) on the Nexus 7, instead of the default phone UI that it comes with.

While critics are beginning to scrutinize every detail of the Nexus 7, the ever hardworking devs from XDA Developers are doing their homework to improve the Nexus 7 experience. The modification to enable a full tablet UI on the device is a tweak that they have developed. It’s easy to implement and one can easily restore the [...]

Samsung looking at a neat new folder organization system for Android

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 25, 2012

Let’s face it. The proprietary UIs used by manufacturers to customize the Android OS, such as HTC Sense and Samsung TouchWiz, haven’t been the most popular ideas with users. Granted, overlays provide a way for the device manufacturer to stand out. But things have only been getting slightly better now, with the more streamlined HTC Sense 4.0 and Samsung TouchWiz Nature UX.

Luckily, the open-source nature of Android means that there are ways to get around the manufacturers intrusions into the Android experience. That of course doesn’t mean that OEMs will stop tweaking their products, in the hope that consumers will one day find their overlays [...]

Chameleon is now a Kickstarter project. Help make it reality with as little as $1!

by: AdrianMay 17, 2012

Those of you who’ve been watching our website for more than a little while might remember an article from a couple of months back talking about Chameleon. More than just an UX overlay, Teknision’s project looked like something that could really revolutionize the way we interact with our Android-based tablets, making Google’s OS a more personal and “alive” experience.

Back then, Chameleon’s developers said that they were in talks with several Android manufactures interested in integrating the UI into their products, which made us optimistic about the project’s future. However, it seems that the negotiations haven’t come to a happy ending, and the guys at Teknision [...]

Touch me, tease me, think me – How will you control your future smartphone?

by: AdrianMarch 29, 2012

Touchscreen interaction with electronic devices is something that I, for one, could only dream about back in the day (yeah, I’m so old that I remember the time when “dumbphones” were cool). Yet soon enough, touchscreens might become obsolete, as more and more companies are competing to come up with new, innovative ways to capture the public’s attention.

Gesture and voice UIs have already been implemented in a bunch of devices, and we’re just a small step away from seeing mind controlled gadgets. Well, not exactly a small step, but it’s pretty clear now that some of the things we saw in movies a decade ago are close to becoming reality.

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 [...]
