Here is my release of WebCM9/10 - a WebOS like App Switcher.

Supported roms:
  • CM10 03/04/13-?
  • Schizoid 03/06/13
  • CM9 Nightly 03/03/13-?
    Files for older roms can be found in the archive
WebCM9/10 will probably not work on any other roms (including the uninstallers).
Only 120dpi, 132dpi, and 160dpi are supported. Other DPI's will not look right.

Make sure to create a backup in CWM or TWRP before flashing this.

Downloads:Flash with Clockworkmod or TWRP
If you'd like more detailed instructions check out ncinerate's write up.


Instructions for WebCM10 for Schizoid:

1. Flash zip in TWRP or Clockworkmod
2. Change these settings in Settings > Paranoid Settings > Apps > System UI:
  • Phablet mode (only 160 dpi is supported in this mode, make sure Force Tablet UI is unchecked in Settings > Rom Control > General UI):
  • Size: 160 dpi
  • Layout/UI: 600px
  • 160 dpi Tablet mode:
  • Size: 160 dpi
  • Layout/UI: 721px
  • 132 dpi Tablet mode:
  • Size: 132 dpi
  • Layout/UI: 900px
  • 120 dpi Tablet mode:
  • Size: 120 dpi
  • Layout/UI: 960px
3. Reboot after changing these settings
4. When you change from Tablet to Phablet or vice-versa you may get stuck on the boot animation.You'll have to force a reboot with the power + home button if this happens.


Known issues in WebCM10 for Schizoid:
Right side of thumbnails get cut off in Phablet mode due to the extra notification bar
Bottom of portrait thumbnails get cut off

Changes in WebCM10 for Schizoid:
Tablet mode rebuilt to support Schizoid (mainly overriding the AOKP bits)
Portrait is spaced correctly (as in PA)

Changes in WebCM10 for Paranoid Android 2.99:
Rebuilt from the ground up (again) to support PA (may also work in 4.2)
Portrait is now spaced correctly

Known issues in WebCM10:
Portrait is not spaced correctly
Bottom of portrait thumbnails get cut off

Changes in WebCM10 12/11
Added clear recents button

Changes in WebCM10
Rebuilt to support CM10

Changes in WebCM9 0.4
Switched back to dip from px, should increase performance and things scale better with dpi changes
Created separate layouts for 120, 132, and 160dpi (any other dpi may not look right)
Fixed stretched dismiss button at 120 and 132 dpi
Built this version in such a way where no original xml files are modified - new files are used (makes for much simpler porting)
Some layout fixes
AOKP support

Big thanks to Dubi for finding the file that controls the resolution of the thumbnails.

Looks awesome. Cant wait for later builds.
I do miss some of the WebOS features, but ICS has some swipe stuff.
Keep it up.

nice!!!!! :P bring back webos 8)

One suggestion for all "modders".
Same as I did with the hidebar thingy, Maybe it will be a good idea to add the changes (source code / xml / etc) into the post. so anyway can apply the same into their builds without affecting anything else.
There are a lot of people who are doing his own builds, and we are getting new nightly and official versions every day (every couple of weeks ;) )
so would make things easier.

Yeah, I'll do that. Maybe pastebin or something would be best, don't want to clutter up the post too much.

Possible future features:
Page by page scrolling, with a slight zoom - similar to WebOS


This is a great!! I hope you'll manage to do that!

With 160 dpi the app name is not in the black bottom frame. It's just under it. Other than that it looks good!

Impressive! works nice at 132DPI - Thank you.

Just notice that this Mod may not be compatible with xport Batter Percentage Mod at at XDA http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1510890

When I flashed xport's Mod it killed your Mod. When I reflashed your mod it killed xport's.

Any thoughts?

That's the problem when replacing apks.
The Battery % mod will have some changes in the framework-res.apk, same as this one, so you can only have one.

That's what I though it will be nice to include the changes done each mod, so then we can mix them all together without loosing one or the other.


Btw, 0.2 looks really niceeeeeeeeee :P

We need to find something useful the swipe gestures, it's good to have like "down" to remove it from the list, but having to with the same function is kind of a waste of swipe 8) hehehehehehe :P

tbob, excellent work so far.

One thing I'd really like to see is a take on the card-stacking/grouping feature that webOS "switcher" function allowed for. Have you thought about this or attempted it?
