Xposed Gel Settings – When Google Gets On Your Nerves

Xposed Gel Settings – When Google Gets On Your Nerves

Yes, I dared to say it. I love Google as much as the whole world does but its omnipresence could be a little too much at time. Yes, it is the most helpful thing on earth which plays a number of roles like a guide, a teacher, a friend, a lover, a mentor, an entertainer, and much more. But the way it has taken over our lives is no joke. Sometimes, some of us might want to take a break form it because whatever gadget one picks up, Google is the first thing that appears.

As the saying goes, too much of even a good thing is bad, therefore, Xposed Gel Settings is at your service, if you have a rooted android device. Therefore, if you are a bit sick of the Google search bar making its way on every home page despite the fact that there is Google in the launcher if one goes to the left page, this is the app that will help you breathe a little.

The things that Xposed Gel Settings can hide are:

– Google search bar / automatically show search bar on Google Now
– apps from the app drawer
– widgets
– page indicator
– app dock / auto hide
– all apps button
– icon labels

It also has an icon pack in its Premium Version which includes the following features:

– supports any icon pack
– automatically applies new icon packs
– dynamic calendar icon (free: un-themed, paid: themed by icon pack)
