Ah, yeah I read that he went on hiatus. I just didn't know that he was back now.  thumbs up I'll have to suggest those features then.

I've used smart launcher in the past, and even own the pro version of it. I do like how the "tabs" are organized on the left instead of across the top (in nova launcher prime) Though, I like more how I can organize my apps into tabs and then an alphabetical list in Nova Launcher Prime. It makes it easier to sift through all my apps. Plus, I've grown to love the multiple pages of docks that Nova Launcher Prime provides. I can put my phone, web browser, messaging, and camera apps on the primary dock, and then slide the dock to either the left or right (I've got three pages setup right now) and then have access to my most used apps, all while keeping my actual homescreen clean and uncluttered. The only two things I can think of to make Nova Launcher Prime even better, is to be able to move the app drawer tabs to the left of the screen, and when in list view, have the letters of the alphabet along the right side of the screen to quickly jump to that letter. (Right now, you can run your finger up and down the right side of the screen, and it will scroll through the alphabet, but doesn't jump to specific letter, so it is very easy to scroll past the letter you want to stop on.) I don't know if the features could be added, because I've heard from some sources that Nova Launcher isn't being developed anymore, and I've also heard that it will be developed more.

I was loving the free version. The scrolling dock was awesome, and I can put 1x1 widgets in it. The only downside, is I was forced to buy the prime version to get the tabs in the app drawer. But for me, the $4 I payed was worth it just to have tabs and the app drawer displayed in list mode alone. I also like how I can remap the home button to launch S Finder from the primary homescreen. Might have found my new favorite launcher! Thmbsup

I completly forgot about S Finder. I've never actually used it. I'll have to look at nova launcher. the tabbed app drawer sounds interesting.

I'm in search of a new launcher for my android phone. I'm looking for some specific things in this launcher.
1.I'd like the app tray to be organized in folders kind of like how they are organized in the aviate launcher.
2.I'd like to have a global search option like in the everythingme launcher. (start typing and it searches for music, contacts, apps, etc.)
3.Not a deal breaker by any means (and really don't expect to have this feature), but I would like to be able to place an app on my homescreen, and then swipe up from the app, and display a widget like in the action launcher.
App tray(Aviate launcher)
[attach=1]
App search(everythingme launcher)
[attach=2]
(BONUS)Swipe up widgets(action launcher)
[attach=3]

I kind of like everythingme, because of it's smart folders on the desktop (the wallpaper changes to the subject of the folder), but it auto populates the folders, so I won't be able to remember which folder my apps are in. (though, I guess that is fixable by using the find feature, and just start typing in the name of the app)

As an alternative to the above features, does anyone know of any fancy launchers with cool features? I have a note 4, so my phone should be able to handle all the bells and whistles of the launcher.

I leave bluetooth on all the time (so that I don't have to turn it on when I get into my car since I use my phone to stream music because live radio has to many ads), so I think I might just find a good cheap bluetooth keyboard to use while I'm at home. That way I don't have to install any extra apps on my phone... to bad there isn't synergy for android
7  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: looking for good/working way to text from computer on: November 07, 2014, 10:43:10 PM
Then I'm sending texts from my email, and not from my phone number. I did that when I was using a dumb phone to get ringtones onto my phone. I'm testing out an app called remote keyboard, which lets me use a telnet client on my computer, and anything I type in that client shows up on my phone. I'm perfectly fine with this, because that means I can use my computer's keyboard for more than just text messaging.

As the title suggests, I'm looking for a good way (that actually works) to send and receive sms and mms from my computer. I spend most of my time at home sitting in front of my computer, so why not be able to text from my computer. So far I have tried Airdroid, which kind of worked, but wouldn't display picture messages, and I have also tried mightytext, but its kind of bugy, and half the time won't show my messages in the web interface.

The idea is not to buy it, but to earn it.

Oh, well poop. I'm not that great of a coder. I only know a little bit of AHK scripting.

Nope it's a different one.

Yeah, I still need to finish this one. It has some things that need to be tweaked.

But I don't think it would be quite suitable for NANY. It really is designed purely for Coding Snacks.

If that were made into a shirt, I would so buy it!

14  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Looking for new windows media center remote. on: September 11, 2014, 03:09:56 PM
I currently have this media center remote. It apparently emulates keyboard keystrokes, because I have a samsung galaxy tab 3 7.0" tablet with the IR port on it. There is an option to control windows media center with the tablet, but I guess my remote isn't compatible with this. Also, for whatever reason, the play, pause, stop, and fastforward/rewind buttons no longer seem to want to work on my remote. (I haven't plugged the receiver into a different computer yet to see if it works on that computer yet). So what I am looking for is a windows media center remote that will let me use my tablet (or my note 4 whenever it is released, and I get it), or maybe something else down the road such as Logitech's Harmony remotes (are they any good?).

I bought a "Microsoft Media Center RC6 iR Remote Control Kit w/Receiver Cable" from ebay, but the seller hasn't shipped it yet. He sent me a message saying that he couldn't find the remote, but asked if I still wanted just the receiver. Would that receiver do the job?

As always, thanks for the help. I love how helpful the DC community has been in answering my many questions. You guys rock!

Edit: I guess I will find out if this microsoft remote will work. The guy found the remote, and is shipping it out in the morning.

Yeah, I'm all up to date now. I checked shortly after I got home from work. I only had one small update.
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any Ideas whats causing the Kernelbase.dll error? on: August 09, 2014, 12:32:56 AM
Directx 10 is not supported in the game?

XP doesn't support Directx 10, so selecting that mode would revert back to Directx 9 allowing the game to run.

That would be my best guess.
That actually makes sense. I just relooked as the system requirements, and it said it needed a directx 9 compatible card.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: New "censorship" technique on Youtube on: August 08, 2014, 11:22:54 PM
I live in the US, and several years ago, I ran across a video that had that muted audio claim on it. I haven't seen it recently tho. All I have seen recently is just videos that have been removed due to copyright claims, or not available in my country.
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any Ideas whats causing the Kernelbase.dll error? on: August 08, 2014, 11:02:54 PM
Well slap my Teletubby dvds (bonus points if anyone knows where that line is from) I ran it under xp SP3 compatibility with run as admin checked, and it works now. Which is interesting, because one of the first things I tried was selecting windows 7 compatibility with run as admin checked, and that didn't work. The sims 4 CAS demo is brand new, why is it that it will only run on xp, and not windows 8?
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any Ideas whats causing the Kernelbase.dll error? on: August 08, 2014, 10:39:51 PM
I've ran sfc twice now, and it says it found corrupt files, but couldn't repair some of them. The log file makes about as much sense to me as the actual error. I'll post the log file tho if it will be helpful. I am usually pretty good about keeping my computer updated, but windows 8 is very unobtrusive about informing you that you have updates available. I'm not entirely sure what the spring update is tho. I have the start button at the left of the start bar, and the metro apps now have the minimize and x button on them, as well as showing up in the start bar. Is that from the spring update?

I'm terrible with filesizes, so sue me, lol.
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any Ideas whats causing the Kernelbase.dll error? on: August 08, 2014, 03:52:58 PM
well thats just strange. Is there anyway I can get a new one? (the install disk maybe?) the one in the system32 folder is 1.06MB
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Any Ideas whats causing the Kernelbase.dll error? on: August 08, 2014, 02:23:12 PM
I just installed the sims 4 create a sim demo, and every time I try to open it, it pops up with window's cryptic, unhelpful error messages.

Does any of that make sense to anyone? I did a little research before posting here, and a few others have this issue too. One suggested uninstalling, and then reinstalling it, which did nothing for me.
Someone also suggested that it might be due to a corrupt user profile, so I created a brand new local admin profile, and had the same issue with that profile.

I'm running windows 8.1 pro x64. My computer also more than meets the system requirements for the demo. I'd really like to get this problem fixed, because I already pre-ordered the sims 4 several months ago, and I don't want to have the same thing happen to it.

edit: just looked in the event viewer.

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Thinking of switching to WP8 from Android on: July 30, 2014, 02:00:17 AM
Thanks @eleman You've made some great points there. I'll probably stick with my nexus 5 after all. I was just looking at the WP app store, and couldn't find some of my must have apps. I was also watching some youtube videos on windows phone, and it does seem a bit to cookie cutter simple to me. There isn't really that much customization to it.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Thinking of switching to WP8 from Android on: July 29, 2014, 11:34:06 PM
So right now, I'm using the Nexus 5, and I love it. Though, I was curious about Windows phone. I was thinking about getting the Nokia Lumia 1520. If anyone that has used both Android, and Windows phone could give me some insight on WP, that would be great. The Nexus 5 is very open and gets the newest version of Android shortly after it is released. How locked down is Windows Phone, and how is Microsoft about updating phones? (are they like nexus phones, or will Microsoft stop updating their phone after like 2 or 3 updates?) On a side note, the Nexus 5 uses a micro sim card, and the Lumia 1520 apparently uses a nano sim card. If I wanted to switch between the two phones periodically, how hard would it be to transfer service between my micro sim card, and the new nano sim card?

Would it be worth it for me to switch, or should I just stick with my Nexus?

Edit: One more thing that is actually kind of a big deal for me. I have my phone paired to my car stereo via bluetooth, and use the pandora controls on the stereo, because I hate all the commercials that FM radio has, and satellite radio is to expensive for me. Will I be able to use the pandora controls with windows phone? Or at the very least, can I use the bluetooth streaming option on my car stereo to atleast skip songs, and pause them?
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Looking for true app data backup solution on: July 15, 2014, 01:12:29 PM
I went ahead an bought titanium backup. I'm going to pass on Rom Toolbox though. I use multirom with a modified TWRP recovery for my roms, and I don't have a need to change fonts. I also just manually change my boot animation, because I rarely change it anyways. I was tempted to buy Rom Toolbox tho when I saw SassiBob's video was on the page.
