Horizontal CM7 Boot Animation

We have seen very cool and original boot animations as of recently, coming from the depths of our forums. This time, XDA member adam2010 brings us something refreshing for CM7 addicts… I mean users. Aside from a very smooth and blue-ish animation, which is classic for CM7, the boot animation actually is in landscape, so it actually makes better use of the screen’s real estate than their portrait counterparts. This is yet another way to show your love for your current rom. For those of you that are on the other immensely popular AOSP rom known as MIUI, adam2010 states that he is currently working on a horizontal one for that ROM as well.

Please share your thoughts about it and some feedback for the dev if you have any issues with it.

It’s time to show off your bootanimation to your friends and make them jealous of your android phone. May be it’s just me; I haven’t seen any horizontal bootanimation so far. Why should we have a small animation and ignore the rest of the screen?!

No matter what size screen you have, the NeoGlass bootanimation can fit it perfectly and it doesn’t lose quality. I have highly optimized the images and made the animation as smooth as possible. I hope you guys experience the same thing.

You can find more information in the boot screen thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
