Here is my release of WebCM9/10 - a WebOS like App Switcher.

Supported roms:
  • CM10 03/04/13-?
  • Schizoid 03/06/13
  • CM9 Nightly 03/03/13-?
    Files for older roms can be found in the archive
WebCM9/10 will probably not work on any other roms (including the uninstallers).
Only 120dpi, 132dpi, and 160dpi are supported. Other DPI's will not look right.



WebCM10 in Action - thanks to RolandDeschain79 for creating the video

Make sure to create a backup in CWM or TWRP before flashing this.

Downloads:Flash with Clockworkmod or TWRP
If you'd like more detailed instructions check out ncinerate's write up.


Instructions for WebCM10 for Schizoid:

1. Flash zip in TWRP or Clockworkmod
2. Change these settings in Settings > Paranoid Settings > Apps > System UI:
  • Phablet mode (only 160 dpi is supported in this mode, make sure Force Tablet UI is unchecked in Settings > Rom Control > General UI):
  • Size: 160 dpi
  • Layout/UI: 600px
  • 160 dpi Tablet mode:
  • Size: 160 dpi
  • Layout/UI: 721px
  • 132 dpi Tablet mode:
  • Size: 132 dpi
  • Layout/UI: 900px
  • 120 dpi Tablet mode:
  • Size: 120 dpi
  • Layout/UI: 960px
3. Reboot after changing these settings
4. When you change from Tablet to Phablet or vice-versa you may get stuck on the boot animation.You'll have to force a reboot with the power + home button if this happens.


Known issues in WebCM10 for Schizoid:
Right side of thumbnails get cut off in Phablet mode due to the extra notification bar
Bottom of portrait thumbnails get cut off

Changes in WebCM10 for Schizoid:
Tablet mode rebuilt to support Schizoid (mainly overriding the AOKP bits)
Portrait is spaced correctly (as in PA)

Changes in WebCM10 for Paranoid Android 2.99:
Rebuilt from the ground up (again) to support PA (may also work in 4.2)
Portrait is now spaced correctly

Known issues in WebCM10:
Portrait is not spaced correctly
Bottom of portrait thumbnails get cut off

Changes in WebCM10 12/11
Added clear recents button

Changes in WebCM10
Rebuilt to support CM10

Changes in WebCM9 0.4
Switched back to dip from px, should increase performance and things scale better with dpi changes
Created separate layouts for 120, 132, and 160dpi (any other dpi may not look right)
Fixed stretched dismiss button at 120 and 132 dpi
Built this version in such a way where no original xml files are modified - new files are used (makes for much simpler porting)
Some layout fixes
AOKP support

Big thanks to Dubi for finding the file that controls the resolution of the thumbnails.

Downloaded. Installed. Works Great!

Using this @ 160DPI, works fine in portrait mode also. Black bar I'm assuming is from where the status bar would normally be, looks like it belongs though.

Performance seems fine. Only part that doesn't seem fluid is the flicking the apps up and away. I am running my tablet at 1.7 instead of the standard clock speed as well. Keep up the good work.

This is sweet
Card view is my favorite feature of webos. I like this mod a lot. Not sure if it would be possible to execute from the home button, but that would be bomb. Nice work!

Not likely. It'd have to be ported.
