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!

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
