You should see that screen once the app drawer is open. Open app drawer ...then press "menu". Now you should see the "sort" menu ...
I hope this helps...

We know there are bootstrap themes for free to use but don't know if there is same for android layouts so that we can reduce the time while designing the app UI. If someone know, please share the link?

I need to show a dialog (more like a horizontal bar) on press of a custom Key (on my custom device powered by Android). This dialog should appear on top of any other application(say "A") that might be running when the Key is pressed.
The app "A" should keep on running and its UI should be visible (i.e the app "A: should not go to "_onPause_()"). It should work something similar to_ SystemUI_'s volume change dialog when Volume Hard Keys are pressed. I want to make minimum changes in framework.
My understanding is that I need to make changes in _PhoneWindowManager.java_ to handle the press of custom Key, which will then call my app residing in application layer, which will just inflate the dialog.
Would this work? If so, is there a better way to implement it? If not, how can I implement this?

Similar to HAL for enabling s/w apps development on variety of h/w platforms, can a generic OS abstraction Layer ( OAL) be developed such that the apps written on top be immediately supported on all underlying platform?

IOAL can expore two interfaces. The southbound will expose open APIs towards the underlying OS ( Android/IOS/WIndows/Blackberry) which can then invoke the native APIs on OS. More than APIs the other mechanism of dealing with underlying OS will be embedded in this interface.

The northbound interface will be the standard APIs towards the APPs. This will be uniform across platforms. The OAL will also manage abstracted resources inside as it may be required to manage the underlying OS.

There will be no h/w intelligence/awareness inside this layer. This may puncture the individual power of popular platforms which draw strength from number of apps on it.
