Nice end-of-the-year and even better start-of-the-new-one. Dinner with friends, #PlayStation Sports Champions (classic lulz for everyone) and Jack (Daniel's). #joy #simplethings #happynewyear

P.S. I still feel weird every time I play with those light-colored-balls

Definitely surprised by this movie. I was expecting not to have anything unexpected... And then I felt a lot of unexpected sympathy for the characters and all the hints of this awesome universe.

Very nice movie to end this year, very well played Disney.

What a night. Really. It seems I made the worst possible decisions. I think I need a tech-break, let's go watch Rogue One.

I know, "why the hell haven't you seen it yet!!!???", because I've been buried in my computer for the last 3 months!!!

Let's hope for a better tomorrow.

Not bad at all, even a bit proud of my UI work this time :)
Android 7.1 Shortcuts are coming to ADW Launcher 2!!!

And we think the UI implementation is way better that Google's Pixel launcher one... although we're sure they'll improve over the time, they're Google right?

Oh, if you have an android 5.1 device, some apps MAY show shortcuts too!!

Hey community, I've just uploaded a new beta release (v2.0.1.23) with some (even more) options for you to obtain that desired "OMGNexusLauncher" style.
It should be rolling out through google play any moment from now.

-You already were able to remove the top search bar/widget/whatever you put there.

-You already were able to create your own "Calendar widget" on the home screen.(anyone sharing an ADW widget template for us? ;)

-You already were able to create your own "G-search-bubble" on the home screen.(anyone sharing an ADW widget template for us? ;)

-You can now select a "manual slide up" app drawer open transition.

-You can now select a "nexus-arrow-indicator" too.

-No, Google Now on the left page is not available, don't ask for it sorry.

Please note this is an initial implementation and you may find issues, so please report using the available channels (Feedback Form and the G+ community).

Also I've fixed some other small issues reported here and there.

After looking for already made solutions out there and not finding a "good enough" one, been working on a way to generate Long Shadows on android, with variable angle, length and style.

It works at bitmap level so it can be used for texts, images, whatever.

I'm sure the result could be better, but my knowledge doesn't reach there. It could be implemented in pure java (slowww as hell) or C/JNI (a bit faster but not enough for realtime).
If I knew how to do it in RenderScript I'd try to see the speed comparision, but never done anythin with RenderScript so I have zero idea how to even start (hint hint, help anyone?).
