Hi Chris, we wrote a piece just yesterday about two of the new Moto X-inspired apps available in the Play Store: ActiveNotifications (only available for devices running Android 4.3 though due to the requirement of a service only supported in that version) and also Twisty Launcher to launch the camera app in the weird way the Moto X does. There's also the wallpapers available. What others have you heard about?

Hi Kris,

the apps you mentioned I think are embedded in the phone as add on innovative features to catch buyers attention. There is one new app that will not be loaded on the phone if I understood well, called Motorola Migrate. And also wallpapers and more.

The Active Notifications app has been improved to support devices running Android 4.0 now, and there's a few other fixes too. I love this app and already can't imagine being without it!

Hmm, perhaps I'm confused: I thought we were talking about Moto X features you can get on other devices via apps or APKs, like the camera interface, Active Notifications, the twisty camera access thing. We don't have a Moto X in the office yet so I haven't been able to play with the built-in features - but we've ordered one. And as far as I'm aware Motorola Migrate is pre-installed on the Moto X. Does anyone have one already and knows different?

I downloaded Twisty Launcher and uninstalled a few days later - doesn't work half the time and is stupid anyway. Active Notifications is good but my phone has a LCD screen so it drains the battery too much.

I love ActiveNotifications, there is a similar app called Cowabunga that you may find a better option if you have an LCD screen. I'm not so keen on Twisty Launcher because it is opening up my camera at random moments (maybe I have it set to too high a sensitivity?). Another recent find is 'hover controls' which I am loving as now I just need to wave my hand above my phone screen and it wakes up.

Hi Martin, you can easily find and download these apps from the Play Store. The ActiveNotification app has been renamed as DynamicNotification, I have been using it for a couple of weeks, it does chew through your battery if you have the screen time-out set too high (I've lowered mine from 15 seconds to 2 seconds), hover control is also a great app, you can use it to launch apps, scroll through a selection of apps and to wake your screen (I only have it set up for waking my screen)
