Dark Themed Google+ App Saves Your OLED-Screened Device’s Battery and Your Sense of Style
If the blacked out Dropbox application we covered earlier has left you wanting more dark themed goodness, XDA forum member ecsnead69 has released a similarly themed Google+ APK. As part of his ever expanding Blacked Out series, this themed application gives the app a sleek new look.
Before you write this off as purely eye candy, keep in mind that this will noticeably increase battery life on devices with OLED screens. In the words of the theme creator:
This version is 98% complete, I have two smali edits that I need to talk with raidzero about, but I felt it was still ready to release….
Let me know if you find any issues and please try to include a screenshot, thanks!
For some reason the app may FC when first signing in, don’t worry about it just open it again and it will be fine from then on out……
If you feel like giving your Google+ a sleek new look, be sure to continue on to the application thread!

Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
In our recent Discuss article, we asked you readers on which OEM you would like to help.
