Dabble in Minimalism With Android Emulator Boot Animation
Sometimes, the classiest aesthetics can be found in understated and minimalist design. Boot animations are no different. Sure everyone likes to knock a certain fruit off of its pedestal every now and then, but few things can beat minimalism in the long run.

But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
