AcDisplay Update Brings Fixes and Less Motorolish Look

Under Google’s influence, Motorola did a great job with their recent devices. Both the Moto X and Moto G are great options in their respective price points. The Moto X has no notification LED, so they developed Active Display to bring the notifications to the OLED panel. This feature then found itself ported to some well known ROMs like Chameleon OS and OmniROM. There are also applications available that ran with the idea and made it even better.

Back in February, we talked about AcDisplay by XDA Recognized Developer AChep. Since then, the project changed a lot (mostly due to Motorola’s interference) and a few new features was introduced. The list of improvements includes the ability to set a wallpaper rather than just a solid black background. There are also some minor fixes, updated translations, and compatibility with Xposed Framework. Also, users will no longer receive notifications from Android when entering KitKat Immersive Mode while using AcDisplay.

The application is distributed in two ways. The stable branch is available in Play Store, and the beta is hosted here on XDA. If you want to try out some active notifications on your KitKat-powered device, you should consider visiting the application thread and giving a new version of AcDisplay a shot.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
