    bugs:

    - Sorting puts lower-case apps at the end FIXED

    - Background music stops when going to advanced settings, or configuring widgets
    - Widgets.. lot o' bugs

    - You can launch the launcher via the launcher when using the launcher on a smartphone instead of stock launcher
    - You cannot Kill apps in the Running Apps screen, this must be a bug in OUYA.
     

    Code:
    I try to kill the app with 3 methods, all fail.
    //Method 1: ActivityManager
    activityManager.killBackgroundProcesses(packagename);
    //Method 2: ActivityManager via Root # am kill --user 0 <packagename>
    KillAppAsyncTask task = new KillAppAsyncTask();
    task.execute(packagename);
    //Method 3: Process
    int pid = getPid(packagename);
    android.os.Process.killProcess(pid);
    So.. If there is a Genius with an idea, please tell me.

    By "list of currently running apps", I assume "force kill an app" is part of it.

    I've tried several launchers on OUYA, looking for a launcher friendly to TV, Remote, and OUYA, I have to say, Baxy Launcher is the best launcher I've ever found on OUYA. Good job Fankkie~

    Looks cool. I like that there's a clock. The OUYA could really use one.

    Edit: lol Brony videos?

    I agree, the OUYA could use a clock.
    I couldn't decide between Analog or Digital clock. But Analog was easier to implement. (read: I am lazy)

    Yes, Brony Videos.
    I made that app to make it easier to view videos from Dailymotion on Google TV devices.
    But it also works on OUYA

    The application has been updated.

    There is a new menu you can start using the menu-button.
    Useful when using controllers that do not every button an OUYA controller has.

    There is a new Running Apps screen.
    In the first screen (the one with the Clock) press the Menu-button and select 'Running Apps'.
    Note: you cannot kill apps. This must be a bug in OUYA.

    Running NOVA Prime but I'm open to change. Do you have a menu option to change home launcher? I have had issues with OUYA controller connecting when booting straight in to Nova. I currently use autopilot to launch Nova after boot, then use NOVA settings to make it default
