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.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
