Require at least Android 1.6 / Donut.

What it is
Save space on your homescreen with this free widget. Use it to clean up or add more applications. It will let you put more then one shortcut in the same space as one icon normally takes up.

You can add applications, shortcuts and some special functions.

To add a Multicon widget on your homescreen, press any blank or empty area and hold down your finger. An "Add to Home screen" window will pop up, from that window, select Widgets. (Full instructions is included, please read if you are unsure how to use this program.)

All permission are used by the special function buttons under "Other".

Version 1.6.0 just got released, 2010-08-29 18:20

It took a bit longer then I expected but finally version 1.6.0 of Multicon is out on the market.

There is two things that you can't miss, a new setup window and more widget sizes. You can now add a widget that cover 1x1 (As the old one), 1x2, 1x3 and 1x4 blocks and customize how many icons you want to use there.

Even if you can put 3 in a row it's not recommended if your finger are any thicker then a pencil, but I leave that up to you.

And when you select applications it will cache what it finds so it will not take that long the next time you go there. If you update an application and it change name it will not show up here since it's cached. If this happens there is a menu option (In the first edit screen, not where you pick apps) that can clear the cache for you.

With the new setup screen you can now also set all icons on a widget without leaving between every pick, hope that will speed up your work.

On the HTC Wildfire there is a bug in there HTC Sense that made Multicon lose it's settings during reboot. I tried to fix that and hope it will work for all of you out there with that phone, feel free to report back to support@h9kdroid.com on the progress of that.

I change the way icons are resized since sometimes they got cropped instead. But in the last update I introduced a cache for the icons, and now it will still use any old once until you repick that item.

Now it's time to tell you about the new buttons and what they do, I will here list all of them if you have missed what they do:

  • Edit mode
  • A small shortcut to put all Multicon widgets into editmode.

  • Airplane on/off
  • Turn Airplane mode on or off, when it's off the button turns red.

  • Autosync on/off
  • Turn Autosync on or off, when it's off the button turns red.

  • Bluetooth on/off
  • Turn Bluetooth on or off, when connecting or disconnection it turns yellow. Red when you have turned it off.

  • GPS settings
  • REMOVED due to a bug

  • Brightness toggler
  • Turn the backlight of your screen up in three steps, when it's on full it turns it almost off.

  • Network settings
  • Brings up your network settings. When you are not connected it turns red, if you connect via mobile network it's yellow and normal state if you are using WiFi.

  • Ring mode toggler
  • Goes through three stages of ring mode, silent, vibrate and normal. This is showed via two small icons turning green/red on the button for vibration and sound.

  • WiFi on/off
  • Turns WiFi on or off, red when you are not connected, yellow when connecting/disconnecting and normal when you are connected.

    Just released 1.5.2 of Multicon, 2010-08-23 22:20

    Just made a new public release of Multicon. Just made a minor change on the version number to 1.5.2 since I was hoping to get more stuff into this one. Keeping 1.6.0 for later when Im more happy with the results.

    As I wrote yesterday I have been sick and haven't been working on it as much as planed but still wanted to push the new buttons out since I got so many requests for it.

    I put in switch buttons for Bluetooth, Airplane mode and Autosync. But please keep in mind that I only have access to a phone running 2.2 and have to trust the emulators and API documents that it will work on 1.6 (Feel free to report both negative and positive response on them).

    All new permissions are used by the new buttons, if you dont add they are never used to write or change anything. Some of the read access are used anyway but only to see if you have any buttons needed to change state.

    A last minute button that made it into this release was for Edit mode that puts all multicon widgets into editmode, sounds like a simple idea but I had totally forgot about it if it wasn't for Joe mailing about it (You deserve some credit here :)

    Also renamed Manager Mode into Edit Mode to be a bit more clear what it do, and now when you enter edit mode there is a notification telling you that. That notification can also be used to cancel the editing and putting them back into normal mode by simple clicking on it.

    Some behind the scene changes is that now icons are cached. This will help to not get a warning icon for apps stored on your SD card after a reboot. And is also the first step into custom icons that was planed for this release, now only a simple user interface for the customization is needed.

    And also change the name back to "Multicon"... The 2 that was added on the last update was a mistake from my side, it's was I have when testing so I can see the difference between latest release version and my working version.
