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.

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

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.
