HipLogic’s New Android Home Screen

Fremont, CA-based HipLogic, a group of former Sun engineers funded by Benchmark Capital, Bay Partners, Stage 1 Ventures, and Route 2 Digital, today released the full version of its Spark application, which is intended as a replacement home screen for owners of Android and Symbian OS smartphones. Available free from the Android Marketplace, the app shows weather, news from CBS, daily deals from Groupon, and social media updates from Facebook and Twitter at a glance. “Spark enables personalized mobile discovery, without a cumbersome search process,” CBS Mobile senior vice president Rob Gelick said in a statement.
