It's Google's annual 'We redesign the app drawer' time (starting with 5.11.*) and I'm finally almost done fixing it. Currently though the tab bar is not visible but you can use the app drawer gesture to swipe through tabs. I can't work on XGELS for the next 14 days so I figured I'll release it anyways.

Please consider XGELS Premium to support the development of this app!Thanks so much!

  • support for Google Search 5.11.27/34/35 and 5.12.30/33/34 and 5.13.26/28

Obviously, this took longer than usual. I was on holidays when the 5.3.23 was released, came back a week ago and spent the whole week fixing it. Many things have changed, every feature which is related to the app drawer/widget will not work. All features have to be rewritten, which I will do in the coming days!

My honest apologies to everyone who got an "Invalid purchase detected" message after buying XGELS Premium. Google has changed their IAP responses and I have noticed it just now. This would not have been necessary if people wouldn't try to hack XGELS. So again, my apologies!

!!!!PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE!!!
Even though XGELS now supports Google Search 4.0 I do NOT advise sideloading it. I wasn't able to restore all of XGELS functionality due to massive changes made by Google. I've worked for the last 4 days to make it work again. Thanks to everyone who didn't downrate XGELS for not being compatible, yet. To the ones who did: [insert swearword]!!

THESE FEATURES ARE BROKEN IN 4.0
* App drawer tabs and folders
* L toggles are now removed
* App drawer swipe up gesture
* GS4.0 broke the icon glow effect, it's not an XGELS issue

All of these bugs are not present in the current official rollout (Google Search 3.6.14). Therefore I do not advise updating your Google Search. Of course I'll work in fixing it.

Added:
* support for Google Search 4.0

Fixed:
* XGELS crash when opening Search bar settings
* Folder background color

XGELS UI:
* new awesome icon designed by Eduardo Pratti

Super stoked to announce XGELS V1.7!
Get it on Google Play Store for automatic updates!

Icon pack support and the dynamic calendar icon is now included. If you are using an icon pack and the pack supports it ANY calendar app will be using a dynamic icon, which means the icon for the calendar always shows the day of the month. If you are not using any icon pack and the calendar app supports dynamic icon, it'll be shown as well. The icon will be updated each day automatically at midnight. So don't worries if your launcher is rebooted in the morning.

Changelog

  • added: Icon pack support [Premium]
  • added: dynamic calendar icon (currently only supported by Today Calendar) or in a few icon packs
  • added: show search bar on default homescreen
  • added: even count of app dock icons
  • added: set position of all apps button
  • added: customizable scroll speed
  • added: hide only icon labels in folders
  • added: negative homescreen margins
  • fixed: Google search bar hidden but space not available
  • XGELS UI: blocking Freedom and it's purchases now. Time to get real, guys!
  • XGELS UI: added French translation (by Bokoblin)
  • XGELS UI: updated translations

Thanks to all testers!

Bugfix release!

Diff to V1.5.2

  • fixed: lag in app UI on certain devices (please update your rating on Google Play)
  • fixed: launcher layout backup/restore
  • fixed: can't exit overview on long press
  • fixed: navigation bar icons don't work on CM
  • fixed: hide app dock not working after some time
  • fixed: dock not hiding after launching an app
  • fixed: search bar showing when overscrolling
  • fixed: search bar disappearing after canceling a search
  • fixed: fixed crashs from crash reports
  • misc: languages updated

------------------------------------

V1.5.2 just went live on Google Play Store.
I'm loving the new gestures and gesture action, I'm glad I can share it with you!

  • added:
  • Gestures

    • Swipe up left, middle, right
    • Swipe down left, middle, right
    • Swipe down to close app drawer
    • Swipe up to toggle between all apps and widgets
    • Double tap

    Gesture actions

    • Notification bar
    • Quicksettings panel
    • App drawer
    • recent app
    • Android settings
    • Go to sleep
    • Unhide dock
    • Launch app
  • added: hide widgets (found under general)
  • added: margins on homescreen
  • added: customizable folders
  • added: autohide option if dock is hidden
  • added: change dock color even if it's not hidden
  • added: option to show power off button on every screen
  • added: increased choosable grid sizes
  • added: changelog found under settings menu
  • fixed: navigation bar action should now work even though the icons may not change because of your ROM/mods
  • fixed: search bar is now showing on drag from app drawer (bug introduced with recent GNL update)
  • fixed: flashing navigation bar buttons
  • fixed: hide clock now also works if no dynamic navigation bar buttons are enabled
  • fixed: fallback if launcher can't be restarted - needs root (e.g. if Swipeback is installed)
  • fixed: SystemUI tweaks and power off should now work on more devices
  • fixed: crash from crash reports

I disabled double tap to toggle the dock because for some strange reason this action is not working with this gesture. I also made swipe down left and right free with all action, swipe up middle is limited to "open app drawer" and "toggle dock". That way you don't lose anything you had before. All of the other new features are free, too.

If you like the update I'm always more than happy to hear a positive feedback rather than only getting negative feedback.
XGELS is the result of many hours. Please show some appreciation!

Enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who did donate! You guys are amazing!
Software is a work of many hours and I'm grateful that at least some of the users can appreciate that!

Diff to V1.4.1
- restart launcher is now free again, hot reboot and full reboot are still donate
- swipe down to close app drawer should be improved
- removed pixels from the power off button to make it more round
- hopefully prevented the app from crashing in some odd cases of blurring the wallpaper

--------------------------------------------------------

If you have already donated via PayPal PLEASE contact me! You'll be refunded!

Wohoooo V1.4 is live and available on Google Play Store!
It took me a bit longer but I think it's definitely worth the waiting!

Changelog

  • added: new gesture: swipe down to close app drawer
  • added: icon and folder backup/restore (requires root!!)
  • added: pressing home on default homescreen opens app drawer
  • added: pressing back on default homescreen turns off the screen
  • added: option to show alternative icons for the navigation buttons on default homescreen (does currently not work on Slimkat)
  • added: hide clock on homescreen (this may conflict with other xposed mods)
  • added: hide app drawer button
  • added: hot reboot and full reboot option if changes which require a reboot are made (requires root!!)
  • added: using libsuperuser by @Chainfire
  • added: blurring the wallpaper and make it the background of XGELS
  • added: donate options
  • added: Chinese simplified translation by @AnyOfYou
  • added: Slovakian translation by @pyler
  • improved: new awesome UI
  • misc: renamed "hotseat" to "app drawer", you'll have to make those settings again
  • fixed: gestures are disabled on GNow
  • fixed: Search bar showing after the recent GNL update
  • fixed: swiping down on either side if one swipe down option is disabled, thanks to @elevengu for the heads up

Everyone please install XGELS from Google Play Store, not from Xposed Repo!

About the donation option:
I tried to make those convinience features such as Restart launcher, XGELS settings import/export and Launcher homescreen layout backup/restore donation only. They are features done by my app and are easy to do by yourself. No functionality of the XGELS module itself is limited! But I might introduce limitations to new features in the future.
Furthermore donators can apply for a Google Plus group "XGELS Donators Group" which basically allows me to push beta releases to you earlier. Which means the official release you'll see in the Play Store might be one increment behind the beta release (thats kind of what Greenify does already).

Thanks to everyone for testing and reporting! Thanks for everyone who contributed!
A special shout out to my private testers! You guys are amazing!
