Express The Way You Feel With “My Mood” for Android
We love customizing our devices, there is no question about that. Changing roms, themes, colors, etc. All to show what we do, how we feel. We express ourselves and our emotions through our devices. If you think that you need a more direct way of expressing yourself, then you may want to check out what XDA member darkolorin has prepared for us. My Mood is a very simple application that will allow the user to place a widget on the home screen with an icon showing the different moods that he/she may be in. There are hundreds of icons to express exactly how you are feeling, so there are probably very few emotions that you will not be able to graphically express. However, there is also the option of adding a small note on the widget to further express yourself. Undecided about how you feel? You can add multiple widgets simultaneously.
Please leave some feedback for the dev.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
