Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.

Add Contacts More Efficiently with AddMeNow
When you’re out and you meet someone new, what do you do? Chances are that if they’re interesting, you add them to your contacts list. Most people do this by sending a message to their new friend so that both parties have each other’s contact info. But it’s now 2013, and there should be a better way than entering in contact details and manually texting afterward.
Thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor SystemErrorOne‘s new application AddMeNow, adding contacts is now significantly easier. When you first load the application, you enter your contact information. Once you’ve entered in your information and added a picture, you can add new contacts. After you’ve entered your new contact’s information, you can add them via call or text, which sends them your contact information that you entered previously.
Sweetening the pot further, SystemErrorOne is also providing the premium version of his application free of charge to XDA community members! The free version does away with ads, allows for custom text in the Add with Text option, and most importantly, allows for contact details to be shared via NFC. Future versions will incorporate MMS functionality so that your profile picture will also be sent along with your contact details.
If you often find yourself meeting new friends and sharing your contact info, make the process more efficient by heading over to the application thread and giving AddMeNow a shot. While you’re there, don’t forget to visit the second post for the XDA User-exclusive free premium download and be sure to leave your feedback for the developer in the thread.

The entities surrounding each of these are sometimes different and sometimes intertwined. We’ve gotten messages and comments requesting for a clearer distinction between these for future reference, which is why we are writing this feature. Let’s start...
