GO Launcher EX

There are some alternative launchers from android markets. Go launcher EX is one of the best, simple yet nice. Most importantly, is free.

GO Launcher EX

Official Site: http://www.goforandroid.com/GDTEn/soft.aspx?softid=13
Official Blog: http://golauncher.goforandroid.com/

Have been using it for few months. It performs better compare to Stock Sony launcher, with 2.3.4 firmware, it is pretty fast.


Go launcher ex on 2.3.4

Here are benefits by using it,
  - customize preferred animation on switching pages or launching apps menu
  - numbers of free themes in market available to choose
  - frequent updates on bugs fixing, speed improvements and latest firmware support
  - bundled “Clear History” and “Close All Programs” functions in app drawer

Theme used on images above ia Blue Theme GO Launcher EX, by Lucky Art

After installed new launcher, prompt box on selection of stock browser and Go launcher will appear. It will prompt up whenever you pressed on Home button, tick “Use by default for this action” if want to keep using that launcher. You can always clear default on Setting -> Manage Application -> Go launcher Ex -> tap on “Clear default”.

Another easier way for switching different launcher, is by installing:
Home Manager
https://market.android.com/details?id=com.carp.HomeManager&feature=related_apps

One thing is Home manager will show notifications on status bar by default, however you can clear it by going into Home Manager’s setting, untick on “Notification” and “Quick Switcher”.

Google Music 3.0 for Android (Outside USA)

Category : Tech News · No Comments · by Sep 29th, 2011

Google Music is only available in USA, for anyone outside, either install it by using market enabler or search .apk online to install. Somehow, i can’t get it download by faking mobile service with market enabler. So i download .apk from xda-developers,

Google Music 3.0 .apk
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1072655

Download the .apk on site above, by browse site through phone or download into PC then copy in to your phone, both works. I tested on Sony Ericcson Arc firmware 2.3.4 and it runs perfect. If you are not Google Music user, you can use it as a normal music player.

The Music interface looks pretty fine and it works smoothly. At bottom of interface, it shows song that is playing and able to be pause or move to next track. Interface’s background change colors randomly from time to time.

On track playing interface, background will change according to your album cover. Background will become a blurred version of album cover.
