Easily Create a Photo Collage with Friend Brush

We’ve all seen those interesting photo collages that combine a collection of tiny images into one large image that looks nothing like its constituents. How would you like to create one on your mobile device? Thanks to XDA Forum Member hessan, you can now do all of this while on the go.

Friend Brush allows you to create photo mosaics that look like a regular image when zoomed out. But when you zoom in, you will see a large grid of constituent photos that make up the main image. When creating a collage, you are given the option to select from a variety of “brushes.” These aren’t brushes in a traditional sense, though. Rather, they are collections of source images for the mosaic. Thanks to the user-friendly interface and how source images are so easy to select, you will be up and running with a photo collage in no time.

Head over to the application thread to learn more and give this app a try. Please note that the version of the application that is currently available on Google Play does not allow users to save their mosaics. However, the version provided for direct download in the thread, as well as the version available through the Google+ Beta community linked in the OP both allow for image saving. This feature will make its way out to the Google Play version in its next update.

[Many thanks to Recognized Contributor benkxda and hessan himself for the heads up!]

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...

Which Manufacturer (And Device) Made You Choose Android?

The beautiful thing about Android is that there is so much to choose from. There are a handful of OEMs that design phones completely different from one another, so chances are you'll find something that suits your needs perfectly. Furthermore, Android itself is very open and customizable, giving users full control over their devices. With Google IO right around the corner, we'd like to know: Which manufacturer and device brought you over to Android?
