Custom HTC_IME Skinning Made Easy

If you’ve installed jonasl‘s modded HTC_IME keyboard and are feeling bored with the default Android theme, why not try out theming the keyboard yourself?

XDA forum member gIMpSTa has created an online theming kitchen for creating custom skinned, signed, HTC_IME high and low res apk files.  This gives you freedom to easily customise or create your own skins!

How it works: gIMpSTa has set up a website (requires registration) that you can visit on your computer or directly from your Android device that will let you:

  1. Create a custom skinned keyboard based off any of the images currently in the library including specifying key colours, backgrounds and text colour, and
  2. Customise existing skins.

HTC_IME custom skin generator is currently in beta as gIMpSTa is actively working on the tool, but all features should be working.

If you use this tool to generate your own custom keyboard and include it in a theme or morph or re-post your custom keyboard, please give due credit to gIMpSTa.

For more information and screenshots of example themes, check out the forum thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
