Paranoid Android's PIE Navigation System Making Its Way To CyanogenMod, Should Be Available In Today's Nightlies

If you love the idea of the PIE controls found in Paranoid Android but can't bear the thought of parting with CyanogenMod, break out the champagne, because the two are to be wed today. That's right – PIE controls are coming to CyanogenMod 10.1.

For those who may not be familiar with Paranoid Android, PIE is a unique navigation method that essentially removes the stock nav bar and turns it into a floating control panel, much like the Quick Controls option in the now-defunct stock browser.

Paranoid Android's PIE Navigation System Is Almost Out Of The Oven, And It Smells Fantastic [Video]

When it comes to custom ROMs, we generally stick to covering CyanogenMod and – more recently – AOKP. Every once in a while, though, something really special, unique, or just downright awesome shows up in another ROM. In this case, it's PIE. A ROM that can make pie. No, wait, that's not right. It's a feature baked into the Paranoid Android ROM that completely revamps the navigation area. 

All pastry jokes aside, PIE is a fully-customizable replacement for the stock on-screen navigation buttons found in more recent versions of Android.

Gingerbread Now Running On 50% Of Android Devices, Just In Time For Ice Cream Sandwich

Google has released the latest of its monthly Android version distribution charts, and for the first time Android 2.3 Gingerbread is present on over half of all Android devices. A milestone, to be sure.

We also get a look at the end success rate of Honeycomb (a tablet-only version of Android), which achieved a mere 2.5% piece of the Android pie since the first Honeycomb device release back in February. Android 1.5 and 1.6 (Cupcake and Donut) have continued their march toward extinction, commanding only 2.1% of the Android population total.

Android Platform Distributions Updated, Gingerbread Finally Making A Dent In Froyo's Lead

It's that time of the month once again, Google has updated the platform version distribution charts for Android, and Gingerbread is finally gaining steam:

Gingerbread now makes up a whole 9.2% of the Android ecosystem, and the Gingerbread source has been publicly available for 6 months as of today. Froyo still dominates, at around 65%, with Éclair placing second. Pre-2.1 devices now account for less than 5% of the total, which really makes the whole 2-year device-life logic seem rather silly.
