The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

Change your Sense Weather’s Sun and Moon to Other Planets
XDA member Jaguaralani has recently released a neat modification for HTC Sense that should make any undercover, Windows Mobile-toting alien feel a little less homesick. As you may have guessed from the title, the ‘Jaguaralani PLANETS’ mod allows you to alter the stock Sun and Moon images for the Home and Weather tabs in the more recent versions of Manila.
Available in the provided selection of well rendered Sun replacements are all of the planets in our solar system, along with Pluto, and even a new take on the conventional Sun image that you’d normally find on your device.
Using the modification, you can also change the Moon image, which is displayed if you update your device’s weather information during the night time. Alternative designs for the Moon animation are also provided by Jaguaralani, which include glossy and cartoon variants.
Each planet is available as a separate .CAB and they should work on any Windows Mobile device with HTC Sense 2.5 installed.
You can find more information in the mod thread.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
