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 XDA Recognized Themer vikasb32. With XToast, you can do several things like add an app icon to the toast notifications. The size of the icon can be easily modified, so it’s very easy to match the style to your ROM. If you would like to see a toast notification in a different style than your current ROM, you can also manually select Jelly Bean, Kitkat, Gingerbread, or Holo Light style.

This module is very easy to use. You can modify the style of notifications with sliders and lists. To test it on your device, you need to have Xposed Framework installed and working on your device. If you find your current toast notifications style boring or lackluster, you can now change it right away. To do so, visit the XToast module thread and grab the latest version.

A Look at the Telegram+ Situation

Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
