There are tons of choices to choose from when looking for a great alarm app for Android. While the stock Clock app for AOSP does the job, it may lack some of the more advanced features from competitors. Let us know what your favorite alarm clock app is for Android and why.
Change Your Sense with CHTS (Cookie’s Home Tab Scheduler)
XDA member MichelDiamond has come up with a very nice application for those of us who are never satisfied with the look on our devices and yet hate having to update the look every time. CHTS is an app to automate change in the look of your Sense interface. This app is designed to do a few things: help you create many fantastic looks for your Sense w/ Cookie Home Tab wielding device, to be able to use them without having to install a bunch of cabs every time you want to apply a theme, and to rotate between these themes with ease. The app will remember every setting including shortcuts, wallpapers, switches, and more.
This is a very nice complement to the Sense UI, and one that was long overdue. If you want to take the beta for a spin, make sure you read all the information available. The dev has put some very good guides together on how to use this app.
Do you eat every day only cutlets? Even if it’s your favorite food? No?
So why do you have the same Sense theme every hour of every day? You don’t? You change it often?
Then you are aware of the effort needed to change a theme, or to change a clock or style, or to revert back to the former one.
You know, that you forget which .cab files you installed. You know how sometimes they interfere with other .cab’s.
And you know that your Sense is sometimes messed up, and needs a full reinstallation.
If you install CHT (Co0kie’s Home Tab), are you reluctant to install the skinning .cab’s for Sense again because of these problems? And do your system settings not really suit the new installation? And do you need different views and WinMo-Settings at work, at home, in the car, in your spare time, or at night – but there is a lot of manual maintenance needed to do this, and so you make it all-for-one, not optimal, but without too much effort?
You can find more information in the application thread.

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
