Applications by label

Maybe you already know that you can categorize applications by label at the applications screen and you can add shortcut of these labels to your home screen or a widget. If you click on the shortcut a dialog appears with a new layout which displays applications for the label. You can set if you would like the labels to be displayed or not:

APN selector new options

You can select the Set apn option in the widget editor if you would like the APN selector to select an apn setting directly without opening the selection dialog. In this case you can change the label and image too:

If the APN selector is set to open the dialog then it displays the name of current apn setting as label. If the APN selector is set to change the apn directly then it displays the name of apn and the image is on if that apn is selected and off if not selected.

The widget in the following screenshots contains three APN selectors. The first one is set to select "Telenor" directly, the second one is to select "Test" directly and the third opens the selector dialog if you click on it. You can see on the first screenshot that "Telenor" is selected so the first toggle is on, the second toggle is off and the third toggle displays "Telenor" as label. If you click on the second toggle to select "Test" then the first toggle goes off, the second goes on and the third displays "Test":

    Change locale

    If you open the System information screen then there is a new Change locale option if you click on the Configuration row. This option opens a new dialog where you can change the system-widget locale setting. The dialog displays all the available locales ordered by name but you can set favorite locales if you click on the star icon. When you open the dialog next then these favorite locales will be placed at the beginning of the list:

    This dialog can be opened from widget too by using Locale toggle. This toggle displays the current locale as label. The icon of this new toggle:

    The icon of bookmarks changed:

    Screen filter toggle parameters

    If you click long on the Screen filter toggle on the widget editor screen then there are two new parameters for this toggle. Using the Set button brightness parameter you can disable or enable button backlight when you activate the filter. If you set the Set open dialog parameter then the color selector dialog opens if you click on the toggle in the widget. In this case the color setting is automatically applied.

    Statusbar icons

    The new white icons fit well in ICS:

    Swap usage

    If your device has swap memory then free and total swap is displayed on the device information screen if you click on the memory row and select More information. If your device doesn't have swap then it is zero as for me:

    The Memory widget has new label options. It can display used, free memory or usage percent too of physical memory or swap. The swap options are available only if your device has swap memory:
