ReLaunchX_1.2.1

A new build is here Rather small change.

What's new:
1. Fixed the nasty dialog popping out about exit when pressing the Android back button up to the root dir when the app is running as Launcher. Anyway I have simplified the work modes:
- when app is started as launcher, from boot or by pressing Android home button, it works a launcher (show the bottom screen buttons).
- when app is started from another launcher it work as file manager
I have no idea why anyone would be using the bottom buttons when using the app as file manager since there is another launcher running in the system but if anyone is missing that feature just share your opinion.

2. Added setting to adjust buttons size. If we can adjust font size then why not buttons size too.

3. Added "unknown" device information to the about dialog. Press Android menu button, chose "Information". When you test the app on your device, please post those 4 text values about your device build:

Hello Leszek,

first of all:
Thank you very, very much for your work on RelaunchX!

I already tried to use Relaunch from time to time on my Onyx Boox MAX - however I think that your great work significantly improved its functionality and stability! I am very happy about finding this thread and am now feeling like the owner of a somehow refurbished device!

It is also fantastic to hear that you are thinking about releasing it on F-droid. Your great job on RelaunchX is really capable of providing an enhanced usability and user experience for owners of the Onyx Boox Max and also other devices!

I have one question:
Is it possible to select multiple files and copy/move/delete them at the same time? If not this would be a very helpful feature for people who e.g. organize bigger collections of PDF files.


Greetings from Cologne,
Mateusz

Great, this makes the app even nicer. :-)

I ment physical Android menu button, does your device have it? I may add it as a choice in "Screen buttons behavior" settings, for example on double tap home, etc.

Thanks, helps a lot.
There is an improper usage of requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE);

What is the Android version on your device?

Most likely the mentioned method does not work on older or newer android so should be guarded by Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= xx. I will check the doc.

No, file management is very primitive I'd say. There is even no visual progress of such operations. Honestly I have all my books on SD card and manage them on PC through card reader.

I agree that there is a lot of space to improve the app in areas of file management and app management.

Cheers

The Android version is 4.2.2, the same as on my Onyx C67 (and ReLaunch works fine there).

I removed the useless title bar, but indeed there are some known issues http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...e-add#16939962

Android is a little messed up in terms of compatibility.

Thanks for looking into this. I appreciate it.

ReLaunch works on my Onyx, so I can use it there.

ReLauchX_1.2.2

Trivia:
1. Attempt to fix crash on some devices. @downeaster59 could you test it? I hope I have done it right though I was not able to reproduce the crash as on emulator everything is fine on any Android version.

2. Added software support for the Android physical menu button. Go to "Settings" > "Advanced settings" > "Screen buttons behavior" > "Settings button ...".
I assigned it by default for the long press action.
