TabletKat

TabletKat is an Xposed module that brings Android Tablet UI to Android 4.4.

Tablet UI was first introduced in Android 3.0. In 4.2 it was phased out in favor of phablet UI, which is basically phone UI stretched for large tablet screen. However, tablet UI was not removed, making it possible to restore it fairly easily.

However, in 4.4 it has been almost completely removed from code, making that impossible. So, TabletKat restores it!

This will most probably not work on custom ROMs. I will still try to provide support where possible.
Known not to work on TouchWiz!

Features

  • Tablet UI ported from Jelly Bean
  • Recents pinned to the left side
  • Overlay Recents: floating panel above the current app (4.1 behavior)
  • Dual-pane settings
  • Tablet layout for Launcher2
  • There is a high probability that it won't work on any ROM that is different from clean AOSP. If it doesn't work, I'd like to know that so I can fix it.
