Hrmmmm. Intriguing probably worth a look just given the SwiftKey pedigree.
 
The second release for SwiftKey's 'Greenhouse' innovation incubator isn't a keyboard — it's a launcher.

Welcome tweaks. One thing I still think would be cool is if you could tell +Google Now or +Google Maps to alert you when travel time is less than a threshold or is 'green.'  Basically just let me know when tourist traffic or commute has cleared out. In other words notify me when traffic is GOOD vs. bad so I can tell when I want to leave. Still disruptions on the route is good stuff.
 
An update for Google Maps is planned for the upcoming weekend, which will be made available just before Memorial Day on Monday. The update will implement better traffic alerts and alternate route suggestions. #android

Was looking back at my stream today and seems it's been a while since the last homescreen. Currently Nova Launcher 4.0 with the Moonshine Icon Pack for the material/lollipop look. Backgrounds are Mars from the HiRISE Beautiful Mars Tumblr. Many of the icons on my primary homescreen leverage Nova's ability to have the icon launch the app but a swipe up open a folder.

Highlight reels are one of the simple but elegant additions +Motorola Mobility​ makes to Android. Things that add value not clutter or bloat. This one is just enjoying a nice summer afternoon on the Greenway in Boston.

Enough is enough time for meaningful PATRIOT Act Reform
Hrm. So at least in part Rand Paul's talkathon in the Senate seems to have delayed extending NSA bulk collection provisions of the Patriot Act. Ummmm Nice work Senator Paul. Hrm that just happened hu? Weird. It is time for meaningful reform of the PATRIOT Act we CAN secure our nation and preserve our rights things might just get a little harder for law enforcement agencies who might have to get back to some investigative human intelligence work, not a bad thing. An America where government and intelligence agencies have unchecked unfettered access to your communications is NOT the America the brave souls we honor this weekend fought and died for.

This is probably my favorite feature in Nova Launcher 4.0. You can also create a shortcut that invokes that 'app search' directly which is also very useful. #Android #NovaLauncher

Interesting +Authy proposes using just your phone as the second factor. The idea (as I understand it) being if you accept a notification sent to your phone based on a public/private key relationship you've in effect prove that your phone is the second factor, the thing you have.

Posting my home screen earlier reminded me I already posted about how I did the whole never ending Mars Wallpapers thing... 
 
Fun with Tasker - Beautiful Mars

So if you're not familiar with the the Tumblr site Beautiful Mars you should check it out. The HiRISE posts a lot of imagery there and a it all just looks really cool. Some of it is black and white some of it is colorful all of it Mars and most of it fairly abstract. All of which adds up to most of the images making really cool phone wallpaper. Great but is there a way to automate this?

What I ended up doing was creating a IFTTT (If This Then That) recipe that checks the RSS feed for new entries and downloads them to my Google Drive. That folder then syncs down to my phone using an app called "Drive AutoSync" and then I have a Tasker recipe that sets a random image as my phones wallpaper. 

See fun right?
