MoDaCo Switch for Galaxy S4 will be coming soon, funding campaign a success

Paul O’Brien’s crowdfunding campaign for the Galaxy S4 Switch app has met its goal. The app will be coming soon to the S4, and eventually to more devices.
July 31, 2013

Paul O’Brien of MoDaCo has recently released the first public beta of Switch, a custom ROM that lets HTCOne users quickly switch between stock Android and HTCSense 5, while maintaining a single set of user data. Because data is shared between the two OS versions, all the apps and settings are preserved when switching, which is the app’s main selling point compared to other dual-boot solutions.

As you’d imagine, developing such an application requires time and, by extension, money. That’s why O’Brien took the Galaxy S4 Switch project to Indiegogo, with the goal of collecting £1000. The project already gathered almost £1400, and there are still 17 days to go until the campaign ends. That’s great news, but it gets even better – Paul O’Brien announced that his ultimate goal is to make Switch available to any ROM developer, for any device.

I’m not setting stretch goals per se, but all subsequent donations help get us towards the ultimate goal of making Switch available for all ROM developers to use and thereby all devices. Switch is for you – Android fans. :-)

The British dev also said that he also plans a companion app for Switch that will let users select specific features that they want to use from each ROM.
