[RELEASE] SwitchView UI - Switch interface on Vita! VitaHEX

SwitchView UI 0.1.2

Something very different this time. SwitchView UI will turn your PS Vita in to a Nintendo Switch! (kinda...)
The title of the app is SwitchView UI. I started this project for fun and for personal use but in the process it turned out to something really great so I decided to share it with you. It's a simple homebrew app (or game launcher) that gives you an interface to launch your games and apps.

It is not a replacement for the Vita's Livearea it is just a homebrew app. It lists all the games/apps in your ux0 location (not system apps), and shows them in a menu very similar to the Switch UI.

As you can see I tried to make all the graphics similar to the Switch dark theme. I also tried to keep the PS Vita buttons and icons the same. The buttons bellow the main game thumbs are the system apps like the PS Store, Photos, Settings app etc.

With a little customization you can turn this in to a PS4 or Xbox One interface by simply replacing the images and adjusting the positions.
It's very simple at it's current state but it does the job.

Developed by VitaHEX games.

Awesome now the icons are working!
For the users who can't wait for this change you can manually edit the line #110 and replace it with this one:

Code: Select all

img_path = "ur0:/appmeta/" .. file.name .. "/icon0.png"
(edit the index.lua file which is located in "ux0:app/SVEW00001/")
I will add this in an update soon.
Thanks for the tip!

This is nice. Will you Implement the touch screen functions . Seems annoying when you have to keep pressing left and right. Other then that once you figure out how to keep app constantly running in background even after launching another app this could be something big... Nice work can't wait for next update I tried 1st build very nice.. Just waiting on touch functions
