Enable Custom Screen On and Off Animations on All ROMs with Xposed

The CRT screen-off animation has been with Android ever since version 2.3 Gingerbread. It’s been tweaked a bit here and then in the time since, but for the most part it’s been the same. Unfortunately for fans looking to modify the feature or incorporate it into ROMs that lack the feature, doing so has always involved modifying system files.

Now through the magic of Xposed Framework, you can do so without making permanent modifications—assuming you already have Xposed installed. This Xposed module, which is aptly called ScreenOffAnimation, comes courtesy of XDA Recognized Developer zst123.

As you would expect from its name, ScreenOffAnimation allows you to set a screen-off animation on devices that don’t natively support the feature. These animations can be customized heavily, including changing both the speed and animation style. You can also define a screen-on animation if you don’t mind a delay when turning on your device. What’s more, you can also enable animation randomization so that you’re never bored when turning on or off your screen.

If you’re running Android 4.0 or greater and you’ve been looking to add or customize your screen on and off animations, head over to the module thread and give ScreenOffAnimation a shot.

KickMaterial: Material Design For Kickstarter

Frustrated by the lack of a Kickstarter Android App, Grzegorz Oksiuta and Outline have collaborated to design an MD themed Kickstarter app. While Kickstarter has put an end to hopes of a release, the concept looks spectacular and if not for an overly cautious legal department "could be released tomorrow".   "Last year, to keep up with what’s great, I switched from iOS to Android.
