An introduction to our Nougat sauce...
We're really excited to announce that we are releasing our Nougat flavor of Paranoid Android. We have a lot in store - with a mix of both features and improvements.
First and foremost, we have moved our code base to be fully CAF based. This brings many improvements to your device. The key improvement here is that Qualcomm hardware is better tuned on the CAF base and with our additional optimizations we can provide a smooth and fluid user experience that will let you enjoy using your device without any lags.
On the first launch, you'll notice a clean setup with a beautiful wallpaper from Hampus Olsson who's teamed up with us again and created several beautiful pieces of artwork. For those of you who don't know, Hampus is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work stands for itself and we're glad to have him onboard. We have also added several new features and made improvements to the UI of the system that we believe would enhance the overall experience.
The magic of the moment!
Immersive Mode: One of our main approaches on Paranoid Android was always the ability to set aside anything not needed and push the borders of your user experience to the top, literally. With Immersive Mode, this is no different but a rule. It allows you to have a clean workspace to focus your production on what really matters by hiding the navigation bar and status bar by default - being Fully Immersive - as well as it also allows you to hide both elements separately.
Pie: We've been working hard on redesigning this key feature of our portfolio and we're really happy with how it has turned out. The whole design has been reworked and it fits in well with the overall feel of Google's Material Design. This gives you the opportunity to use more gesture based control for navigating, rather than using the standard Navigation Bar at the bottom of your screen. Expect improvements and additions in the future.
Color Engine: We're proud to announce our newest feature, the ambitious Color Engine. It allows you to seamlessly change the colors of your device to be in Light, Grey, Dark (Pixel) and Black modes with a variety of accent colors to choose from. This makes changing the theme of your device really simple and quick without having to install any extra packages on your device.
Pocket Lock: This new feature prevents any form of accidental input when your device is in your pocket by disabling input sources. You can simply release Pocket Lock by long pressing the power button as highlighted by the minimal UI in case of any sort of obstruction or dust on the sensors. [7.2.0+]
Accidental Touch: Another brilliant feature useful for many, especially the gamers out there. It prevents any sort of accidental touch on hardware buttons while the touchscreen is in use. This means you won’t experience any unexpected behavior while playing games, web browsing or even when attempting to reach your finger out to the edge of that humongous display. [7.2.0+]
