Give Your WM Device A Taste Of ICS

There are several devices blessed with Windows Mobile out there that have the capability to run ports of Android with ease. These devices have severe hardware limitations when it comes to trying to simulate the user experience (no G-sensor, non-functional gps drivers, etc). Well, for those of you who have not made the jump over to a newer generation Android device and would like to have a similar experience to those who will get ICS, then check out the package that XDA member lesscro put together for you. ICS 4.0 combines not only visuals but also some functionality that will make you believe that you are no longer using a Windows Mobile device, but something that really closely resembles Android 4.0. This skin comes loaded with several features such as a 3D task switcher, a very nicely laid out launcher, and much more.

You need to keep in mind that this will only work on devices that are equipped with WVGA devices only (Touch Pro2, HD2, etc). You also need to understand that the new UI is still a work in progress and because of it, you may experience a bug or two. In any case, this is coming out nicely and if you still have a WM device, we strongly recommend you to try it.

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...
