AcDisplay Now Shows Active Notifications on Jelly Bean

Android notifications can be displayed in a variety of different ways. Of course, you can simply unlock your device and pull down the notification shade. However, there is a more elegant solution: Active Notifications, which was originally seen on the revolutionary Moto X. This was developed to keep you apprised of incoming alerts using the device’s AMOLED panel to show incoming SMS messages, Emails, and other notifications.

XDA Recognized Developer and Themer AChep recently updated his popular application AcDisplay. For those who don’t remember, this brings your notifications directly to your lock screen. What new features have been added since we last featured this app? The most noticeable addition is support for Jelly Bean, as of version 4.3. The application also gained a few options like Xposed integration to override the home button, the ability to disable full screen mode, and a new circle-style of notification icon. And if you prefer your device to show notifications only when your device is awake, you can do so by selecting the appropriate option.

You can learn more about this latest version by heading over to the application thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege.
