Give Your OUYA a BootyCall

0 Comments

Kick the default OUYA launcher to the curb and take customization to the next level. Have you ever wanted to turn an OUYA into a retro-gaming machine or perhaps a simplified XBMC powered media center? Want to make an OUYA powered gaming cabinet that boots right into your retro collection? Perhaps your at a gaming convention; E3, IndieCade, etc; and want to lock your OUYA to only run your applicaiton? BootyCall seeks to fill these needs by allowing you to choose what ever installed Android application you want as the default application on the OUYA.

In addition to its main purpose, the application also allows you to go beyond regular launcher capabilities, by allowing your default application to reside on a USB drive. Finally the application provides you with a Bluetooth pairing fail safe; this means if you power-on your OUYA and find yourself stuck in an application without a paired controller you need only wait a few minutes until the OUYA controller pairing screen is launched.

What is a default application?

Android devices have a special attribute assigned to an application, called a “launcher”, that tells the OS to call the assigned application when you exit all other applications or start the device. BootyCall steps in as a relay, catching this call and then starting a configurable application.

Where can I get it?

BootyCall is now available on the OUYA Discover Store and on sale for $2.00 until November 17, 2014, after which it will go to its full price of $2.99. Use the “Push to my OUYA” button below to queue the application for install on your OUYA!
