Gravity Home: A Live Wallpaper and Home Launcher in One

We all love the live wallpapers on our Android phones right? They allow us to do cool things like fly through space, play duck hunt, or even float through the clouds right on our phones home screen. Today I have something really unique and quite fun to show you. It's called Gravity Home and it is a live wallpaper and a home replacement launcher like ADW or LP but at the same time. Yup it replaces the home launcher with a live wallpaper and adds in some physics that makes your icons float around, neat huh?

Sony-Ericsson’s Xperia Arc and Neo seen in action

Here's a video of the Sony Xperia Arc and Xperia Neo being taken through their thumb paces at a Press Conference in Copenhagen. Looking at the video, it's pretty clear just how snappy the interface is in both handsets. The phones are comfortable to hold thanks to their curved in design and the menus flip by at lightning pace. The video also shows a size comparison of both cameras along side the LG Optimus X2.

ADW Launcher on CM7 Development Playground to test new features

Like we have mentioned a time or two here, the developers over at XDA are always making changes and improving things for our beloved Android phones. Today we have an exciting and simple add-on that makes the ADW Launcher (stock in CM7) even better. It is a development playground that is testing new features to see if they are popular enough to integrate into CM7.

HeLauncher for Android, all home replacement launchers in One

Home replacements for Android have been around since the beginning. The launcher is what launches the main desktop for your device. It's where you rearrange your icons, put your widgets, and everything. There is stock launchers, Home +, with bigger names like Launcher Pro, and ADW EX being some of the more popular ones. These are all great but sometimes switching between them can get cumbersome and irritating. Always having to replace all the icon's and widgets gets old also. We present you with HeLauncher.

MIUI Developers Weather Beta 1 Free for all

The Android developers better known as MIUI have released a beautiful Weather Widget pack today. Called the Weather Beta 1. It is a nice blend of the Sense UI weather widget, Beautiful Widgets (my personal favorite) and a little iOS all wrapped into one. Although iOS is not cool enough to get widgets, MIUI ROM's do have a certain iOS look to them, and so does the settings for the widget, but that is another story.

Sony Ericsson Arc System Dump in the Wild

For those of you that love Sony Ericsson and may have a x10, or any of their other Android phones. This might have some juicy stuff for you to use and enjoy. The amazing dev's over at XDA-Developers have pulled a system dump of the Xperia Arc. Things of this nature usually contain all the files you would typically want, and now you can get them and enjoy it on your other Sony Ericsson phone.

Record Calls on your Galaxy S

Like we often talk about, the devs over at XDA Developers are hard at work like they always are. This time XDA member antsm has developed a modification of the Phone.apk that will allow users to record phone calls. This is still very much a work in progress like many things and will only get better with time. He is working on it for the Galaxy S but once it gets working better I'm sure it can be added to many other devices.

CyanogenMod 7 gets a beautiful Statusbar Pulldown Mod

With the ever so changing and continued development by the amazing TeamDouche Developers, CyanogenMod is always improving. They add things daily and push nightly builds for all you crack flashers like myself. With the quick development we at times run into issues where things like MOD's or Morphs don't work or are outdated. It's good they move so fast, but a bad thing for those that like to personalize their Android phone. Those that follow some of the pulldown status bar mod's for CM7 I'm sure you all know who @rorifree is. If not, he is the man behind this great looking MOD.
