Illuminance Keyboard Theme – Type Your Way to Coolness
I get bored with the usual grey Android keyboard, don’t you? I also find it hard to type on it sometimes, as do many users who I have spoken to. Thankfully, there is a solution to this. Actually, a solution to both gripes.
XDA member adam2010 shares with us his themed Android keyboard, not only packing four great colours, including Orange, Cyan, Green, and Red, but also making the keys a little bigger than the stock keyboard. It’s like Christmas has come early!
The keyboard is provided as an APK. Just unzip, transfer, and install. It really couldn’t be easier to modify your keyboard and solve those typing problems.

If you’d like to grab this keyboard for yourself and support the developer, head on over to the original thread!

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
