Re: Interesting Android Shell


Yea some options are not really that necessary and some are just for fun, so maybe a plugin system (like that of compiz) would be useful for some of these interesting features (in house or third party) that keep the shell from becoming stale/uninteresting and tend to attract consumers (and what attracts consumers attracts oems).

Happy holidays to you too :)

Very nice, and, above all, very fun. I don't think that range of options is necessary, especially the more randomly arranged ones, but the gestures were very easy to pick up, like double tap to select multiple items, lasso select, etc. The side launcher also works much like we thought it would on Ubuntu Phone, though I'd like to say that a launcher whose items exceed one screen in length is clumsy. A better option should be found for that problem than the horrendous folding that we currently have on Ubuntu desktop.

Enjoy your holidays, everyone :)

First Off Merry Xmas!! :-}

Second, i thought this android shell was very interesting and in some areas feels similar to how an ubuntu phone UI would be, worth checking out:
