Change Your Navigation Bar with Xposed
If you’ve ever wondered how to make your ROM beautiful, you have probably looked into theming. Creating themes is genuinely hard work, and requires theme authors to spend hours drawing and resizing images to keep their work beautiful. This same work is done by OEMs, which hire graphics designers to provide some of the highest quality images in their stock firmwares.
XDA is a hacker community, and as such, practically everything that has been developed for a device can be extracted for use on another. If you’ve been looking to theme your Android navigation soft keys, XDA Recognized Contributor neXus PRIME has an Xposed Framework module that you may find interesting. NeXus Navbarz allows you to modify the navigation buttons on the bottom of your screen.
This module features a long list of included navbars, and it will surely be expanded in future releases. You should be able to use the module with all AOSP-based ROMs, and users have reported success with Xperia firmwares as well. Since it’s an Xposed module, installation is very easy. Just apply the module, select your favorite navbar style, reboot and voilà! Your ROM looks totally different.
You can find the module in its original thread.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
