Imagine a phone where everything you see, from the wallpaper to the apps you use, change dynamically based on your interests, queries, and location. Imagine a phone where nothing remains static, and everytime you search for something new, you get a new design altogether.
This is the vision of the Everything.me Launcher for Android. With Everything.me, your phone’s appearance will dynamically shift depending on where you are, and what you are doing. Check out the video below:
Pretty cool, right? Kind of like a phone that runs off of Google Search. There are, however, a few issues.
First off, since this is still in beta, it is not the smoothest experience. It’s still somewhat laggy and stuttery. There were some issues with speech recognition as well; for instance, when I searched for “NFL,” my wallpaper changed to a picture of a soccer match, while the apps that were pulled up were all NFL related. Oops.
Whenever I search for something, the launcher does a nice job of pulling up and showing me the apps I already own, but a good portion of everything else is simply a link to an app in the Play Store. To be fair, this is to be expected since I’m sure we don’t all have the apps necessary already downloaded.
Also, there does not appear to be any way to tweak any settings or preferences, so what you see is what you get, at least for the time being.
I’m kind of digging this transition to a dynamic phone that we’re seeing these days. HTC is doing something similar with their Sense 5 UI, Facebook is giving us Home, and Everything.me is looking to take things even further. I’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on this one.
