Get Your Appointments On Your Lockscreen With Lockscreen Calendar

Adding  stuff to make your Android lockscreen be more productive than it currently is seems to be a thing that has interested our devs since the times of S2U2. The currently available lockscreens for the little green robot offer a wide variety of functionality from music player controls, to picture viewing, to even launching certain apps. However, a simple thing like Appointments being displayed seems to have gone missing from the minds of our devs. If you heavily rely on your device to remind you of what you need to do, then you should really check out what XDA Recognized Developer j4velin has prepared for you. Lockscreen Calendar brings that small missing bit of aforementioned functionality back into our lockscreens. The app switches the alarm notifications that do show on the screen by your upcoming calendar appointments. Now, you cannot longer excuse yourself from forgetting an appointment as all you need to do to remember is hit the power button and look at your screen.

The app is still rather buggy, but it has come along nicely since the original conception. Please help the dev by leaving your feedback for further improvement of the app.

 

 Just made another small app which reads the next upcoming calendar events and shows them on your lockscreen (in the text field where normally alarm apps show the next alarm).

You can find more information in the application thread.

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...
