A new Android application has been launched this week called Cover which allows you to customise your Android smartphones home screen experience in a new and innovative way.
There are plenty of Android lock screen applications already available from the Google Play Store, but the new Cover Android application takes the whole experience to a new level. Allowing you to view different applications at different times of the day or when you are in different locations. Check out the promotional video after the jump to see the new Cover Android application in action.
Cover’s CEO and co-founder Todd Jackson explained to the Engadget website that the new application has been developed to recognise your current location using a geo-fencing system via wireless networks rather than the traditional GPS method.
The new Cover Android App is also capable of understanding when you might be driving your car or working on foot by using your Android smartphones gyroscope and accelerometer.
Another great feature of the Cover Android application is a “Peek UI” mode that allows you to look at an app without the need to unlock your smartphone completely.
The Cover Android application will soon be arriving on the Google Place store and you can sign up for notification when it launches from their website. Currently there are no plans to launch an iOS vision of the Cover application.
