Birthday Cake For That Lucky One

It’s that time of the year again, when you are home alone for your birthday. Well, do not worry because your Windows Phone has prepared a cake for you to blow out the candles when the time comes, because that is just how much it loves you and how much you should love it. To make it work, you simply need to blow into your device’s microphone and the candles go out when you apply enough air.

Inspired by the Wuvuzela app (and possibly by the announcement of Portal 2 at E3), I’ve developed a simple little application that allows you to blow into your phone’s microphone to blow out candles on a cake.
It’s very simple, and I’m no artist, but hopefully this can inspire some other ideas for this kind of application. Also, if anyone wants to make me an animated cake, let me know
Tested and working on my HTC HD2, but should work on other devices as well.
Let me know what you think/if you have any problems.

If you want something for your next birthday, try this new cake.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

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. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
