As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
Blur or Dim Images with Tholotis
Few things tell us more than an image. Our brains decode image much faster than other forms of information such as text, sound, and so on. Even when meeting new people, first impressions are largely based on visual cues. Android is no different, and the XDA community is home to lots of themes, mods, and wallpapers to make our favorite operating system look better.
You can do countless things with image, but you require good software to apply some effects or filters. Sadly, most of this software is available only on traditional computers, and can’t be done with a phone. It’s a shame because nowadays, Android devices are capable of doing almost everything from make calls to controlling cars. If you ever wanted to play with your images directly on your device, XDA Recognized Contributor Chris95X8, made a simple application that allows you to dim, blur, and save the modified images on your phone. The app is very minimal, and can do wonders with your favorite wallpapers to make them even better.
You can find Tholotis by visiting the application thread. So if you are interested, pick your favorite image and make it even more beautiful with ease.
