Get Rid of Generic Contact Images with Identiconizer

Take a look at your Android contacts list for a second. Doesn’t it look really nice when your friends’ social media profile images are populated as contact icons? This is generally done automatically via synced social media sites, but unfortunately, not everyone you care about is on social media. In these cases, you’re generally greeted with a generic icon.

In order to make one’s contacts list look a little nicer, the ChameleonOS developers decided to replace the generic contact image with a identicon, a small image made of geometrical shapes. Everyone’s shape is unique and can serve to distingush contacts from one another.

Now thanks to an application by XDA Forum Moderator GermainZ, you can have this feature without having to install ChameleonOS on your own device. Identiconizer gives you the option to choose the style and size of the image, and create identicons for all missing contact with just one click. The application can work as an Xposed module as well, allowing it to be integrated directly into the OS.

The application and the source code can be easily found in the application thread. If your contacts look boring and you want some unique images to replace the stock icon, head over there and give Identiconizer a try.

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...

What’s Next For Pebble?

It is all well and good stating figures, but what does $20 million of crowd funding mean for a company? The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000.  This level of funding is unprecedented for Kickstarter and it passed $1 million in less than an hour bringing with it a level of fame unavailable to many other OEMs.     Produced by the Pebble Technology Corporation (PTC), the Pebble Watch has...
