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.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
