Modernize Your Emails with Email Popup

Modernize Your Emails with Email Popup

SMS and Hangouts messages likely won’t ever replace traditional Emails for more formal communication. This “old fashioned” way of sending messages is used for almost everything, such as getting SPAM to finishing an important report, and everything in between.

The stock Email client in Android is still far from being a perfect and modern-looking app. For example, if you receive an Email, you need to open your notification bar, click the notification to open the app, and then finally read the message. To reply to it, you need to do some extra work. XDA Forum Member glensantacruz saw this as a problem, so he decided . . . READ ON »

Change Your Toast Notification Style with XToast

Android uses multiple types of notifications. One of these is known as a “toast notification.” You’ve no doubt seen toast notifications in the past, where small prompts with a short text line are shown with information such as successfully signing in, and so on. The default toast notifications in Android are far from being pretty. But luckily, there are tools like the great Xposed Framework that can change almost anything in the Android OS. The best thing about Xposed is that all of these changes can be done without re-compiling the whole OS.

An interesting module to change the look of toast notifications was been made by . . . READ ON »

Port Sony Xperia Themes to CyanogenMod 11 with Ease

In addition the obvious proficiency with graphics, creating a good Android theme requires certain knowledge about exactly one must do. Even the default theme engine used many ROMs requires theme files to have a compatible structure, otherwise your newly created themes will not work or will be incomplete.

Sony devices have a quite unique UI, which many people fancy. Unfortunately, like most of stock ROMs, it’s bloated and full of commercial content. Because of this, quite a few XDA folks decide to venture over to AOSP-derived ROMs in their many flavors. If you ever wondered how to make an AOSP ROM to look like an Xperia device, XDA Senior . . .

Get Your Cargo to its Destination in 4×4 Military Operations Reborn

Racing games have evolved quite a bit since the days of Pole Position back in the 80′s.

Finally to top things off, you now get the added feature of physics-based gameplay that will make you think twice about wanting to drive that military tank to beat your opponents. All these combined make . . . READ ON »

Automate Your Device with Sfen

Automate Your Device with Sfen

Changing the profile of your device manually is now long forgotten. Since the advent of Android automation applications like Tasker, we’re now able to take full advantage of automatically enabled profiles. Some OEMs have even noticed that profile management might be a good idea, and they have implemented some features into their stock firmware.

IF you are looking for a free and interesting alternative to Tasker, you should consider meeting Sfen. It’s made by XDA Senior Member greglord. With Sfen, you can create events that can be triggered when certain conditions are met. You can specify an action and the event that is triggered . . . READ ON »

Boost the LG G3 Speaker and Headphone Volume

It seems like OEMs are stepping up their game, with regards to the quality of their devices’ sound and speakers. HTC kicked it off with the fabulous Boom Sound speakers on the original HTC One and its successor the One M8, as well as the mid-range Desire 600 and Desire 816, and Sony hopped on board later with their first front facing speakers debuting on the Xperia Z2. With the bar set up high, other OEMs, such as LG and their G3, may be feeling the heat.

With this said, if you’re an LG G3 owner and are . . . READ ON »

Starting things off on the LG side, the LG G3 is the company’s flagship for 2014. Just like what we saw with the international version, the US Carrier variants of the G3 are high end devices.

Want to Downgrade an Application? AppDowner to the Rescue

Application updates usually bring various improvements and bug fixes that take the newly updated app one step closer to perfection. Well, the key word here is ‘usually,’ since developers occasionally take two steps back when taking one step forward. This includes additions such as crippleware, new bugs, and much more.

The best solution to avoid the aforementioned situation would be downgrading to the older version of the app. However, that’s not possible using the adb install command. Removing an app and installing it back is not an option as well, because of app data loss. XDA Senior Member pyler found a solution for such this issue and made AppDowner. . . . READ ON »
