Block Android Intent Broadcasts with ReceiverStop for Xposed
A few days ago, we took a look at an Xposed module by XDA Senior Member defim aimed at allowing users to choose which apps launch at boot. That app works by blocking the BOOT_COMPLETED command. What if you could block other intents from reaching Android’s BroadcastReceiver? As it turns out, defim has you covered for this as well, with his app ReceiverStop.
Just like Boot Manager, ReceiverStop is an Xposed Module. In other words, you first need XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s fantastic Xposed Framework (thread) to play. And just like other Xposed modules, installation is a breeze. Simply install the module APK and activate it using the Xposed Installer GUI. Using the app is easy as well. Simply open the main interface, access the apps you wish to limit, and disable the intents that you don’t want the app to receive.
It is important to note that this modification, as with any other that controls the way in which apps behave, may occasionally have unexpected results. That said, since you can always remove limited intents or disable the module entirely, experimentation is safe and easy.
Head over to the module thread to get started.

With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...

The Apple Watch and Android Wear are both growing platforms. Now that we've gotten the chance to see both of them in-depth, we can get a good idea of which directions the two are headed. We recently did a discussion and asked you what you thought the Apple Watch would copy from Android Wear. Today, we ask you the opposite. Which features do you think Android Wear will copy from the Apple Watch and why?
