Are They Dead? Are They Alive? Wonder No Longer

Have you ever wanted to know if a celebrity is still with us? As its name implies, Are They Dead is a morbidly interesting game  that lets you know if your celebrity of choice is still alive and kicking or has become one with the ether.

XDA forum member alinescoo has baked in functionality that allows users to search for their favorite celebrities by name, their notable works, death date, and an incredibly creepy “recently deceased” list. Future revisions will even have the option of configurable death notifications for your favorite celebrities.

In the words of the developer:

Have you ever caught yourself wondering “Hey, are they still alive?” Well ‘Are They Dead?’ let’s you easily search for your favorite celebrities and answer that very question.
-View information on your favorite celebrities, including their age, birthday, the date they died and cause of death.
-Can’t remember the persons name? Search from films, TV shows and even bands!
-Search by a specific date. Find out who might have died on your birthday, or which celebrity has the same birthday as you.
-Search from millions of entries!
*(Coming Soon) Notifications! Keep track of your favorite celebrities and get notifications on their birthday, status, or the anniversary of their death. Completely customizable. Plus many more features!

Sounds perfect for those who have a strange affinity for the other worldly. Those interested can get their fill in the application thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
