Most third-party home screens simply add on features to the standard launcher experience, but Action Launcher has always been a little more innovative. While it has a lot of neat stuff like Shutters and the Quickdrawer, it has been missing one of the basic features of a custom launcher – unread counts. Well, now it has arrived, albeit in beta form.

Intel might have finally cracked the video messaging code. See, you'd probably send more video messages to people if you looked like a giant anthropomorphized puffer fish. Heck, you might even pay for the privilege of looking like George Washington in said video message. So obviously, there's now an Intel app called Pocket Avatars that does just that.

Google has chosen to keep the on-screen navigation bar simple ever since it was introduced back in Honeycomb. It's changed a little bit over the years, but Xtended NavBar lets you change the way it works without screwing up the UI.

Your phone probably has a lot of stuff on it, right? Terrain Launcher (funded by Samsung Accelerate) claims it helps you stay organized like no other launcher.

The folks at Cyanogen Inc. are busy with more than the OnePlus One launch, if that's what you call this. There are also a pair of new apps in the Play Store. Theme Showcast pretties up your CM11-based device, and Gallery Next is live, but only for the OnePlus One right now.

There is apparently a sport called "soccer" (sometimes confused with football) that is somewhat popular in various places around the world. For those who are particularly serious about getting the perfect kick, BallTune claims to be able to measure the pressure of a soccer ball simply by watching it bounce with your device's camera. Truly this is the future.

The stuff that we do on a computer or mobile device right now is enabled, at some point, by the black magic worked by a class of modern sorcerers known as the Holy Order of Server Administrators. Or actually, just server admins, but the point is that it can be a hard job to keep all these applications and services working properly, and New Relic is one of the more popular tools to make it happen.

What the heck does that say? Is it even a language? Inapp Translator might be able to tell you what's up, and you won't even have to hop back and forth between apps. Once activated, Inapp Translator places a floating button on the screen that can pull up instant translations of the text in your clipboard.
