Huawei seems to have nailed the smartwatch with their new Huawei Watch, a classy-looking but also durable and powerful Android Wear...
Help Design the New SuperSU Icon
By now nearly everyone should be familiar with the SuperSU application. It’s a Superuser management application, and usually the first application installed upon gaining root for the first time. It’s that little box that appears when you run a root-enabled application asking if you wish to grant that application root access. Nearly everyone on XDA has seen that on their devices before. Now, users have an opportunity to put their mark on the popular application.
XDA Elite Recognized Developer and Senior Moderator Chainfire has revealed that he’s looking for a new icon design for SuperSU, and is asking anyone and everyone for submissions. While the current icon (a blue #) is nice, simplistic, and well liked (even by Chainfire himself); Chainfire has decided it’s time for a change. The rules for the icon creation and submission are as follows:
- I reserve the right to veto any icon I really don’t like, or doesn’t fit with the rest of the application
– Participating means you give up any copyrights and royalties and such for the icons you submit
– The icon should be clearly identifyable at 48×48 pixels
– Please stick to the current Android colors. Blue definitely has my personal preference, as it matches the program accents. Resize and place your icon inside the app’s screenshots to make sure it fits color-wise
– You might also want to look at Android iconography (and the rest of the Android design section, really)
You must create a ZIP file containing the icon in the following sizes in PNG(+alpha) format:
You may email that ZIP file to icon @ chainfire.eu
Do not include your PSD file – send that one when you actually win
So whether you decide to re-design the blue # or go another direction, all submissions will be taken into consideration. For more information, you can check out the SuperSU thread linked above or Chainfire’s blog.

Privacy and security are two increasingly important factors in today's globalized world, and with the surge of internet spying by government agencies and third parties, wiretaps are an everyday thing that don't just concern James Bond anymore. Encryption made its way to the semi-mainstream messaging world with the Telegram platform, but while millions flocked to it, it is still clear that convenience beats privacy for most of smartphone users. After all, with the huge user bases boasted by Whatsapp and the...
Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
