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 Some Blue Style to Your MIUI Torch App
Sometimes it’s the little touches that can make or break a product’s user experience. Torch applications are apparently no exception to this. Thanks to the work of XDA forum member demo23019, the MIUI Torch application has now had some style injected into it.
By changing the color scheme from a ghastly orange to a soothing blue, the theme maker was able to bring a modern touch to the otherwise simple app. If you’re a MIUI user, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give this a shot! Even if you’re not running MIUI, a user has reported success on CyanogenMod 7.
In the words of the modified app’s creator:
For anyone who is using MIUI i changed up the orange to blue for the theme I made and figured id share…enjoy
This will not flash it has to be pushed into system/app/ directory make sure you backup old torch with titanium or just save to SD card… if someone can make a flash-able version i wont stop you
*UPDATE… someone confirmed it working on CM7*
Be sure to continue on to the application thread to get started. Also, if you’re daring enough to try this on a non-MIUI ROM, be sure to post your experiences.

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.
