Default [APP][4.0+] HaloShortcuts v1.0 - Create direct shortcuts to apps in floating mode

HaloShortcuts

Coincidently, there's another HaloShortcuts by @MainstreamStereotype that is similar to this one.
His has an additional feature and that is the ability to choose Activities within an App.
Please check his out also


What?
A shortcut selector to add a shortcut in floating mode on homescreen or for apps that uses shortcut selector.
It adds a shortcut with the intent flag 0x00002000.

For?
For ROMs that make use of the intent flag 0x00002000.
Examples include Paranoid Android ROMs with Halo.

(This might work with OmniROM's MultiWindow but I need someone to confirm before I write it down. )

Downloads?

This app only makes shortcuts with the halo flag. It doesn't affect the launcher. It has probably been redrawing ALL the time but you only notice it now since it is floating and not fullscreen.
Want Samsung-like MultiWindow on any ROM?
Try my XHaloFloatingWindow Xposed Module.


Nokia 2650 (2005/2006) → Nokia 6280 (2007/2008) → Nokia 6300 (2009/2010) → Nokia 5800 (2010/2011) →
Samsung Galaxy Ace (2012/2013/2014) → Chinese Samsung Galaxy S3 MT6575 Clone (2013) (charging port broke)

Current: Samsung Galaxy Ace with CM11 RC6

Is it the actual running of the app itself, or the launch of a halo shortcut created by this app... that is causing the redraw? What Launcher do you have and rom?

@smeejaytee
First thing I would try is downloading an alternative free launcher eg Go Launcher. Install, and do a quick test to see if a new Halo shortcut causes the same issue. Should take 5 minutes. Then if you still have the issue, then it's probably rom related. BTW, do you have any other rom features enabled that might be interfering? (eg Multi Window or something like that)
