The lockscreen is a part of the OS that we see hundreds of times every day, whether we're using Android or iOS. The look of the lockscreen depends on the Android version, device manufacturer or ROM chef. In short, it differs for almost every user.

Glimmr Puts a New Spin on Mobile Flickr Access
Back when sharing pictures on the Internet was new, and online portfolio storage was beginning to emerge, Flickr made a splash as being a simple and cost-effective way to share your images online. A few years later, and dozens of similar sites later, Flickr no longer has such a large chunk of the online photo sharing market, and unfortunately their Android app leaves a lot to the imagination. That said, many photographers still find themselves at home on the service, so improving the Android app experience is of importance.
Thanks to XDA Senior Member brk3, a new app has entered, trying and bring back Flickr’s luster. The app is called “Glimmer” and he’s calling it “The Unofficial App for Flickr.” It brings with it the following features:
* Swipe through you and your contacts photos with ease.
* Group support.
* Comment on photos and view detailed exif info.
* Notifications for when your contacts post new photos.
* No Ads.
* Lots more to come.
Glimmr is in its first release, so head over to the application thread and give him your feedback.

Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
