Android is a mobile phone operating system developed by the search provider Google. Used on a wide variety of smart phones, Android is currently the best selling mobile operating system in the world. Android is an open source OS, letting anyone develop their own software (such as applications or games) to be run on Android platforms. The Android OS is also used in tablet computers, with the latest version being Android 3.0. While the Android OS has been in use since 2008, regular updates and support for Google keeps Android the leading-edge system it is today.
The first Android phone to be released was the G1, developed by HTC and released in 2008. Running Android 1.0, this phone had many of the features currently found in Android phones, including synchronization with the users Google account and the Android Market for downloading phone apps. Since then, there have been many updates to the Android operating system - major updates are given the name of a dessert. The newest version of Android for mobile phones is Android 2.3.4, Gingerbread. Designed for use on 4G phones with increased performance and speed, Gingerbread provides better video playback and support for front facing cameras for video conferencing.
Mobile phones running the Android operating system all have a similar set of features provided by the OS. The Android OS is made to be run on smart phones, phones which can run a variety of Java based applications that give the phone added functionality. In addition to basic phone and text/media messaging service, Android phones have a variety of web based services and applications. Android phones are connected with the owner Google account, allowing access to Gmail and Google Calendar as well as a variety of other applications. In addition to wireless internet and Bluetooth connectivity, Android phones allow for wireless tethering - using the phone as a modem to connect a laptop computer to the internet. All android phones allow for streaming video, with the latest models able to connect to the 4G network and video conferencing using Google Talk. The most well known aspect of the Android platform is access to the Android Market. Similar to the Apple App Store, the Android Market allows users to download applications and games for their phone, many of which are free.
Android is arguably the most advanced and widely popular mobile operating system in the world today and over a billion Android users around the world support that claim. This astonishing feat is not something anyone can achieve easily. The key elements behind this success are very simple. Android is an open source platform that allows unmatched freedom. Sure, Apple comes with a development tools suite that is very useful but what it does not give is the amount of freedom Android can. Other strong competitors like Google and Verizon are incrementing and implementing to the same amount of freedom that Android allows hoping to generate more revenue and so far, the results are very satisfying. Hundreds and thousands of people around the world are converting to Android. These people belong to all sorts of life circles. A common cell phone user to a Chief executive of a corporate company now prefers Android to attain the results and satisfaction they are looking for.
As Samsung rolled out the 2021 refresh to its various Good Lock modules, Task Changer was strangely absent. It was unclear if Samsung was still working on making it compatible with One UI 3, or if it had given up on the module entirely. Thankfully the situation has turned out to be the former, and Task Changer is now back with brand new features — but it isn’t where you’d expect it to be.
Left/middle: Task Changer settings, Right: Custom recent menu
Task Changer has been merged into Home Up, so that’s where you’ll now need to look to get started. Once Home Up is open, check for the Task Changer menu at the bottom. Task Changer has gotten some new features in this update, but it’s lost others in the process.
There aren’t as many themes available now. In One UI 2, there were almost a dozen different configurations to choose from, but now there are only three — list, grid, and stack. Blur controls are also gone, and mini mode has been removed, too. Thankfully, my favorite feature, “center the currently running app,” is still here. With this enabled, the overview menu won’t automatically scroll to the next running app.
New options borrow a feature we just got to meet in the Android 12 developer preview: “Allow bottom gestures in full screen mode” does exactly what its long name suggests. When you’re in full-screen, you’ll be able to use the home or overview gesture even when the navbar is hidden, much like Android 12. Unlike the developer preview, this won’t work with the back gestures just yet. “Allow gestures in pay region of home screen” does the same thing for the homescreen if you have Samsung Pay enabled. Finally, you’re able to adjust the home and overview sensitivity like you already can with the back gesture.
In the main Home Up screen, the option to backup and restore your homescreen preferences is finally working. When the module first got its One UI 3 update the menu for this feature was there, but couldn’t be accessed. Now everything is working, making it easier to share your homescreen to other devices.

Samsung’s launcher got a surprise update this week, adding custom grid sizes for folders. As well as the default 4×4 option, there’s now a 3×4 arrangement. It’s a minor change that most people will probably leave alone, but it’s nice to get more customization in the stock launcher.
The updates to Home Up and One UI Home are available now from the Galaxy Store, but if they aren’t showing up for you we have you covered at APK Mirror: Home Up, One UI Home.
