Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
BW Taskbar Icons & Wait Animation
While a lot of the icons were originally done by Brian, I’ve got to hand it to dafunk for what I think is the most impressive part of this set; the wait/busy animation:

This taskbar is my mod from original Bilbobrian’s (Brian’s) one.
I opened this thread in this section because some people told me to do it because it was a little hard to find, but the taskbar style is the same than the one posted in Blackstone section.
I made from scratch these last 2 versions (WM 6.5 and WM 6.5.X) because the “old” one was a little “dusty” and there were big issues especially in WM 6.5 version, because in the hurry to post it, I cabbed the same *.dlls of WM 6.5.X version , and the funny thing is that I noticed it only 2 weeks ago
Of course this is the main reason of all these problems.
This time I followed the steps of DarkNinja and I thought to make it “modular”, so that there will be more chances to get it working.
Thanks to DarkNinja and his staff.
The taskbar is fully compatible CDMA and GSM.
I don’t own a Leo, so I couldn’t test it directly, but I have positive feedbacks from many devices: Blackstone, Leo, TP, TP2 and others.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.

A new, revamped and open source website is also in the works, with a look inspired by material design. We also got a tip about an...
