As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
All-in-One Toolkit for the Google Nexus 7
The Nexus 7 is quickly becoming the most popular Android tablet. Unsurprisingly, it has amassed a large community of developers who have produced some great tools and utilities for the device. A common utility for popular devices is the ‘one-click’ root tool. XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer mskip has created such a tool for Nexus 7 users that contains one-click root functionality and much more. Some of the notable functions include:
- Install/Uninstall Google Nexus 7 Drivers
- Backup/Restore Tablet using ADB
- Lock/Unlock Bootloader
- Root Tablet
- Backup Stock Recovery ad Flash Custom Recovery
- Boot to Custom Recovery without Permanently Flashing it
- Download and Flash Factory Stock Google Nexus Rom
- Boot or Flash .img Files
- Set Permissions on Tablet
- View and Monitor LogCat
As impressive as the current function list is, mskip has also added capability to apply upcoming mods to the tablet (though there are none available as of yet). Both new and existing Nexus 7 users will surely find this toolkit to be extremely helpful. To download the utility, head to the release thread, and be sure to thank mskip for putting it together!
