Nice launcher but I have two requests... option to add a shortcut to the home screen when a new app is installed, and an easier way to uninstall apps from the shortcut. Thanks!

I created a simple diagram with two boxes with text in them and a line connecting them. Exported as SVG. Tried to upload to wikimedia and got this error:

Error creating thumbnail: convert: Non-conforming drawing primitive definition `text-align'.

Here's the diagram.

There's a new edition of Hello, Android in the works. It's been rewritten to cover Android Studio and Android 5. I'm looking for Android community members to read it and supply a praise quote for the front of the book. Email me if you're interested.
