Cover App Contextualizes Your Android Home Screen

by Hazel Chua

Is your phone’s home screen getting too cluttered for your taste? You can either sort the icons into folders or get an app like Cover.

Cover is especially useful if you only use some apps at certain times of the day. For most of the day, while you’re at work, you probably use work-related apps the most. When you’re home, that’s the time you probably check sports scores or read random articles on Flipboard. Then there are the apps you use most frequently when you’re on the road, like maps and GPS.

Cover automatically changes homescreen and device settings depending on whether you’re at home, work, in the car, or somewhere else, and learns which apps you use most often in each of these locations. The app is also smart in the sense that it can identify whether you’re driving in your car or working on foot by using your device’s gyroscope and accelerometer.

Cover’s unique ‘Peek UI’ feature lets users check out certain apps as well without having to unlock their phones. You can also quickly switch between apps, sort of like the “ALT-TAB” key combination from Windows.

Cover will be launching for Android devices soon on the Google Play Store. In the meantime, you can check their website for updates.

    This app shows promise. I can see this being very useful in day to day management. Its important to have access to the right app at the right time. Location is usually the issue.
