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!]

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
