Get Some Home Screen Inspiration from MyColorScreen

I haven’t really participated in a “Show Your Homescreen Thread” since the good old day of Windows Mobile. However, these threads remain incredibly popular for Android users. After all, there’s nothing quite like that little dopamine kick that comes from knowing somebody else approves of your meticulous widget placement. The natural extension of these type of threads then, is of course, an entire site devoted to the sharing and discussion of peoples device set ups. That site is MyColorScreen.

Unfortunately due to the site’s image-heavy nature, it can be something of a nuisance to view from a mobile browser. Therefore, XDA Senior Member frenzyboi has created an application for browsing the site while on the move. Some of the applications most notable features include:

  • Server side caching for improved loading times
  • Viewing of comments/favourites/likes
  • Copying items to clipboard for sharing
  • Full screen viewing.

The app provides pretty much all of the functionality of the website in a compact and easy to navigate interface. You’ll still be able to access all the relevant information for each screen in case you want to find out how to recreate them for yourself. The app also follows those all important Android design guidelines, making it intuitive and easy on the eye. Despite the site’s support for both Android and iOS homescreens, the app currently only displays screenshot from the Android side of the fence. I’ll let you decide whether that’s a plus or a minus.

Check out the original application thread for more information.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
