From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Boot Animation Previewer Gets An Overhaul
A few months back we brought to you an app prepared by XDA member despotovski01 that made life of those skilled individuals working on boot screen animations much easier. In case you are not familiar with this, the program lets you preview any boot animation before you flash it onto the device. So, if you are working on perfecting your own custom one, this will save you a lot of time since you can avoid flashing it before getting it just right.
Well, if you thought that the app had seen its last update, you were wrong. The dev decided to hit us with a major update for this app, which includes a newer and refreshed user interface, updater engines, troubleshooting guides, and much more. Needless to say, the dev still needs any and all possible feedback to keep on improving his app, so if you are up to the challenge and would like to make the ultimate boot animation, please take this program for a spin and let the dev know if you come across any bugs.
