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...
chaosHUD for WP7
The first nice applications with the WP7 unlocker by Chevron are starting to pop up. XDA member chaoscentral presents chaosHUD for Windows Phone 7. This application will let you know your current speed, wind direction and the time on a clear complete screen with black back ground. This app will work also in HUD mode, which is simply a way to use it on reverse view (you can look it on a mirror).
The developer announced that this beta will be available for free to test until December 12th, after that date the app will be automatically unshared and deleted, so hurry up and grab it and please leave feed back.

[APP][BETA]chaosHUD – Runs through 12/12/2010
I have recently made what I feel is a pretty decent HUD application, however I don’t have a device to properly test it on. I figured with the Chevron unlocker out allowing sideloading I could post my xap and allow people to test it to see whether or not it functions.
If all works as planned then I do plan on releasing it on the market for free, so take what is posted here as more of a beta. Please leave some feedback as to what actually happens, the more detailed the better.
This beta will run till 12/12/2010, at that point the file will be automatically unshared and deleted. So please download and give feedback.
About the application:
This is just a basic heads up display application with a bit more info than the ones that I was seeing on the market. It displays your current Speed, direction and time in both regular display and a HUD mode(where it flips the image vertically). To enable hud mode simply tap the screen. To switch back, just tap the screen once more. This application makes use of the GPS for speed and direction, and the internal system clock for the time.
You can find more information in the application thread.

As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
While Cyanogen, Inc has been the source of many headlines lately, there seems to be a lot of confusion regarding the differences between Cyanogen, Inc and CyanogenMod developers, as well as Cyanogen OS and the CyanogenMod ROM that so many XDA users love. The entities surrounding each of these are sometimes different and sometimes intertwined. We’ve gotten messages and comments requesting for a clearer distinction between these for future reference, which is why we are writing this feature. Let’s start...
