The best way to configure the launcher's layout is by using the Setup Wizard. You should be prompted to open it when first launching the app, but you can also access it later from the overflow menu.
The top section of the launcher is a header with the time, date, and a graphic of a the San Francisco skyline from Google Now. This image changes based on the time of day. You can configure at what times the images change from header settings. There are now several headers available as well as an option to just use the system wallpaper instead.
Below this is the widgets section. Swipe in this area to switch widget cards. The height of this panel can be adjusted in settings. Select "Rearrange Widgets" in the overflow menu to change the order of the cards.
Below this is the favorites section. This will be empty at first, but you can add favorites by long-pressing on apps in the all apps list or shortcuts from the overflow menu. You can remove favorites by long-pressing and selecting "Remove favorite." You can also change icon size and number of columns. SF Launcher Plus users can also select an icon pack (best with ADW packs). To rearrange them, select "Rearrange Favorites" in the overflow menu.
Swipe right from the favorites section to access the list of all apps. From this page, you can long press on an app and select "Add favorite" to add it to your favorites. You can also long press and select the option to uninstall the app.
You can set a light or dark theme for the app. You can also set the theme to auto, which will cause it to change to light while showing the dawn and day images (default is 6 AM to 6 PM, although this can be changed) and change to dark while showing the dusk and night images. If you set a tap or long press action to toggle the theme, it will override the automatic theme. As of 0.5, you can opt for using the system wallpaper as your theme, with or without the header image.
If you like SF Launcher, you can now get SF Launcher Plus (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.alamoapps.launcher.plus) for $1.99. It currently adds support for icon packs, hidden apps in the list, and font options in the header and app labels. There is also a link to it available on the settings panel for easy access. Not all icon themes will work, but most ADW-compatible themes should.
Please let me know if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions at email@example.com
Update: Most (if not all) ADW themes should be compatible as of 0.2.6, including several mentioned as not working in previous versions.
Note: Make sure to set your icon theme separately for both favorites and all apps!
This app is only a license key. You must have Version 0.2.2 or higher of the main SF Launcher app installed in order to use it. New plus features will be added through updates to the main launcher, not this key (although this key may be updated to make the licensing more secure)
Once you install, restart SF Launcher to have access to plus features (hit back until you get the restart dialog).
When SF Launcher is complete, this will likely cost between $3.99 and $5.99, although it is currently available for $1.99. This price may increase before it leaves beta, but it won't go above $2.99 until it does.
Current Plus Features:
Custom Icon Theme - Set an icon theme each for favorites and the app list. It should be compatible with most ADW, Launcher Pro, and Apex themes, although additional icon masks and backgrounds have not been added yet. 0.2.6 improves compatibility, particularly with ADW themes.
I will frequently add new plus features, particularly while in Alpha and Beta.
If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Update: I am aware of the issue with the settings application crashing on 10 inch tablets and I am looking into it.
This is the Android 4.2 clock widget, but with the entire time displayed in Roboto Light. It can be used as both a launcher widget and a lockscreen widget.
To use, select "Fixed Clock" as the widget from the launcher (to add it to your homescreen) and/or the lockscreen (to add it there).
There is also a "Fixed Clock Center" widget which additionally vertically centers the widget in whatever space it has available.
This will NOT change anything simply by installing. You must add the new widget manually.
A Daydream is also available.
You can also configure the clock font to be Light, Regular, or Bold and configure the date and alarm to be Condensed Bold, Condensed, Light, or Regular. You can also make the date and alarm all caps or not. You can also choose to never show the alarm.
If you like this app and think that it is worth $1.99, a donate version is available.
Starting in Version 1.2, you can configure a color for the clock, the date, and the alarm. A preset list of colors is available to everyone and those who have the donate version can select from a full color palette for each.
Jack's Music Widget should work with any music player that displays controls and album art on the lockscreen.
For more font options, upgrade to the Plus version: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jackthakar.musicwidget.plus
Apps Confirmed to Work (v1.1.2 fixes issues with artist not displaying):
• Google Play Music
• TuneIn Radio
• Pocket Casts
Let me know of any others that work and I'll add them to the list.
If you switch between different music players, you don't need to switch widgets. Just stop playing music in one app and start in another and the widget should switch.
Starting in 1.1, there are two widgets: one designed for a 4x1 or 4x2 grid and one with full bleed album art (works best when roughly square).
Additionally, there are three themes to choose from (dark, light, and transparent) for the 4x1 widget.
This widget will not work until you go to Security>Notification access in settings and check "Jack's Music Widget"
Unfortunately, the APIs that allow this are new in Kit Kat, so I can't port it back to earlier versions.
Developers: If you want your music app to work with this widget (and other apps which use the new KitKat RemoteController APIs), make sure that you setup a RemoteControlClient and pass the appropriate metadata (this widget uses album art, song title, and artist name).
As of version 1.1.1 of Jack's Music Widget, this app allows you to set the font and text size of the song, artist, and album in the widget.
LimesTone is a music player for Android 2.2 and up that is designed to work well on Android 2.x phones, Honeycomb tablets, and Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean devices of all sizes.
-Beautiful and easy to use interface
-Disable Playlists: add songs to a playlist and then disable it so that any songs on it do not appear in your library (for instance, have a holiday playlist that you leave disabled most of the year, but reenable in December)
-Song and Artist Ratings: Rate each song and artist in your library; Smart Shuffle mode uses these to play your favorite songs more often
-Two Shuffle Modes: Smart Shuffle (default) picks songs from your queue based on song and artist ratings; you can turn smart shuffle off to shuffle normally.
-Random audio files cluttering your library? Hide <unknown> artist available from settings. For anything else, you can add them to a playlist and disable it.
LimesTone Plus is available as an in-app purchase from the Settings page of the app. It will be $2.99 when the Version 1.0 is released sometime in the near future, but right now it is only $1.99
Current Plus Features:
-Removes the ad on the now playing details page
-Adds playlist generator based on same algorithm as Smart Shuffle
-Custom headset controls (single click, double click, triple click, and long press for play/pause, next track, and previous track buttons)
-Live wallpaper that displays a grid of your album art when music is not playing and displays the current song's art when it is
This is still in Beta, as I'm still working to fix a few bugs. Once I feel that it is stable enough, LimesTone will leave Beta with Version 1.0.
Note on Error Reports: Please include a message with your report stating what device you have, what version of Android you are running, and what you were doing when the app crashed. This helps a lot for me to fix it.
Note: I'm using the official playlists from the Crash Course channel. The playlists for all past shows (World History, Biology, Ecology, US History, and Chemistry) are all complete and up-to-date in the app. Literature episodes from 2012 are all complete as well, but new episodes (starting late February) may not appear in the app if the official channel separates the playlists. Psychology does not yet have an official playlist. Once it does, the app will be updated with it.
On the Videos tab, simply select one of the six courses completed or in progress at this time and then scroll down the list to find the video you want. Tap on at, and it will open in the YouTube app (videos may eventually play within the app, but, right now, they play in YouTube to maintain commenting and all other features).
Additionally, a simple Tumblr feed of the last 20 posts published to the official Crash Course blog (thecrashcourse.tumblr.com) is available within the app.
While this app should be compatible back to Android 2.2, it works best with Android 4.1+.
This app relies on the official YouTube app to play videos, so please make sure it is installed.
At this time, this app is only a browser. It will not notify you when new videos are uploaded. I do plan to add this feature in the future, but I'm waiting on Google to release new notification APIs for YouTube (they announced them in May, but it could still be several months before they are released).
This app is not affiliated with Crash Course, the Vlogbrothers, or YouTube.
Romeo and Juliet is available for free and all other plays are available for $0.99 each or $7.99 for all 37.
By long pressing on a speech, you can bookmark or take notes on a passage. You can also search within your current play.
You can switch between plays you've purchased (or select one to buy) from the action bar and, once in a play, you can side swipe between scenes.
If you and a friend are reading the same play, you can share your current location with NFC.
Note to Students and Teachers in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District:
Six free plays are available when you are logged into your school Google account. Once you add your @srvusd.net or @students.srvusd.net account to your Android device in settings, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Richard III are available in addition to Romeo and Juliet. Other plays can still be purchased for $0.99.
