Android: Previously mentioned app launcher Everything.me made a name for itself by being customizable and flexible. Now it also proactively personalizes your phone with the right apps, information, and folders based on where you are, the time of day, and what you need.
The new version of Everything.me wants to proactively show you information and apps you need when you need them. For example, you’ll see your commonly used work apps when you arrive at the office, and before you head home for the night, you’ll see the apps you use on the commute home, or the weather outside so you’ll know whether to put your jacket on or carry it over your arm. The update also adds a “nearby” folder, which is surfaced when you’re somewhere new that Everything.me doesn’t know—and it’ll pre-populate with information you’ll need, like maps, nearby businesses, and so on.
Everything.me isn’t the first Android launcher to do this. Cover is another launcher we’ve tried that aims to do something very similar—surface apps on your phone and relevant information based on when it’ll be most useful to you, whether you’re at home, at the office, or during a specific time of day. The new version is available now; hit the link below to check it out.
