Hi all developers,

We released our EvolutionUI research project as open source. In this project we are experimenting with integrating gamificiation (experience points, achievements, etc) into Android. This should make the phone easier to use and a lot more fun.

Feel free to have a look at the open source project and contribute to make it even better!

I actually like the idea a lot. Brings simple 'Fun' to the Android system. For some users it won't be though because there have been times where myself just wanted to dive into my Brand New Android device when I received it. However once I get used to it I get somewhat bored?! Lol, I'm a phone whore so that's definitely why. This might actually help me not want to move on to the 'Next Best Thing' once I get used to my current device.

I like it!

Great idea, I actually think this is a great concept. Some users I've noticed find it white hard to get used to Android phones.

With this, they can explore and find out more things about their device yet figure out more about what they can do on it.

So great concept, I'll take a peek at the source

If you are making/building your own ROM, then I guess you need to include the two projects into our repo and create Android.mk files for them.
If you just want to install it on your already flashed phone, there are precompiled binaries here: https://github.com/sonyxperiadev/EvolutionUI/releases
In each case note that this is not a finished product

This reminds me of app Android achievements
Used a lot then lost after factory reset and got lazy enough to not install it

Press thanks if I've helped

Good stuff! I'm trying to convince family to ditch iPhones since they're getting worse and worse on build quality under Mr. Cook. Their only real concern is learning a new phone. This would be extremely useful!
