Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Add a Touch of 3D to Your Apps with 3D Interlace Library API
We recently published an article regarding a new feature (that should have been available from release) for the EVO 3D, which allowed users to use 3D pictures as wallpapers on their desktop. This app was developed and published by XDA Forum Member HJ200. It seems that what he did has awaken a somewhat of a sleeping beast in the EVO 3D community, as various people started requesting the dev to let them know how to allow apps to use said feature on other apps and projects.
Due to popular demand, the dev has freely posted the API libs for everyone to use. This means that people trying to add that infamous 3D auto-stereoscopic effect to their newly created images for apps and games can simply do it by adding the code provided by the dev. The code will essentially force the device into 3D mode whenever the app needs it. Just keep in mind that you need to have root to proceed.
Speaking of permissions, as stated before, the dev has posted this code to be used by anyone who wants to use it. However, out of politeness (and really they are his terms), please provide credits in your app(s) pointing to the dev and let the dev know if you do use his code, just as a matter of courtesy.
A lot of people asked for the code to interlace images (used for the 3D Wallpaper Picker).
So here’s a library to use in your own code projects.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.
