Google Pixel LauncherThere’s been a lot of hype over the released apk for the Google Pixel Launcher and it’s pretty easy to install on a non flashed android device.

However, it’s not very intuitive to uninstall.

Normally, to uninstall an app within Android (depending on your Android version), you would visit Settings>Applications>Applications Manager then the app you wish to uninstall.

With this particular apk installation, you’ll need to go to Settings>Default Applications>Home then select the trashcan on the right side of the screen for the Google Pixel Launcher.

Personally, I didn’t find the launcher to have enough customization options for me. It looked nice, and able to add widgets, but was unable to set up folders, couldn’t figure out how to add additional icons to the desktop and missing some other key customization options that I like. There were only three customization options within the settings:

  1. App suggestions
  2. Show Google app
  3. Allow Home screen rotation

So, uninstall we did, and we’ll wait for any new developments

It’s become a little more difficult to locate your RSS URL for displaying the feed for your Twitter account, so here’s a little cheat sheet for you:

http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=ENTERYOURNAMEHERE

Just copy the above code and replace the “ENTERYOURNAMEHERE” with your twitter account name and you r ready to use.

Are you getting the error message “Failed to enable Spotify Social” when using your Spotify desktop app?

Due to recent and ongoing changes to Facebook, I’ve decided to pare down my use of Facebook and disable many of the features – one included the posting of my Spotify listening to the Facebook profile. After doing so, I started receiving a “Failed to enable Spotify Social” red message at the top of my desktop app. Well, there seems to be a hidden trick to get rid of the message.

  1. Open Spotify
  2. Go to Preferences
  3. Go down to the Social Network heading and select the “Connect to Facebook” button
  4. Then select “cancel” when the Facebook window is displayed.

The message should then disappear.
