    Hi Everyone!

    It's been a while since I've been here.

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I am working on a launcher for android that is based on webOS. There never really was a good replacement to give that good look and feel of webOS. I have a very basic version created, and I plan to make it more usable. If anyone is interested in testing it out and maybe providing feedback, I have it posted to my github (https://github.com/achunt2143/webOS-Launcher) under the Releases.

    This sounds like fun, good luck. When it's ready for testing make sure we know so we can provide feedback. There are many other aspects of WebOS that I miss. Imagine bringing back the auto-switching of speaker and earpiece depending upon whether it was in a stand or not. Android device search and application synergy has gotten better, but not up to "just-type" WebOS.

    If you, or anyone really, would like to start testing it, that would be great. I think github will allow anyone to submit bugs right on the page. I just got a pretty simple Just Type function working. It will probably never be as good as webOS's but its certainly a start. The launcher at least functions in my testing. It would be nice to see what others experience, since all Android devices are so different.

    I'll definitely try it out at some point!

    Just installed and I'm really impressed. It's definitely fun so far. However, if I only have an on-screen keyboard, how do I bring it up for Just-Type? Clicking on it shows a "search the web" field, but that's it. Also, if you can point me to information on how to build it myself that would be great.

    You would need to tap the Just Type box again to bring up the keyboard. I haven't worked out how to get the focus to be enabled by default yet when the screen comes up. For building it, you'll need to open it in android studio. There shouldn't be any additional steps, just clone the repo and open existing project.

    I have installed it on my OnePlus 6t running Android 9.

    Super cool.
