iOS7 Control Center Clone for Android

One of the many features and “innovations” Apple fans worldwide love to tout is the all-too-familiar notification and settings area from Android Control Center of settings toggles and shortcuts. Putting aside the usual knee-jerk copycat accusations, kudos to the company for at least drawing inspiration from their main competitor. Because let’s admit it, the Control Center does look interesting, in either design philosophy or whatever fruity flavor Apple has thrown in the mix.

So if you’ve ever wanted to give this a go on your Android device, you can get pretty close to the real deal with XDA Forum Member mallikvala‘s iOS7-inspired Control Center. Control Center replicates the experience one would have when using the actual feature on an iPhone. By tapping on the bottom edge of the screen, the sidebar-like Control Center slides up revealing settings toggles, brightness and volume sliders, a music widget, and seven shortcuts to apps.

Mallikvala has also packed in an extra couple of neat features that the original may or may not have. Most notably, there is a high degree of customization in regards to the aesthetics and themes, allowing you to mix and match the two colors of the panel’s background gradient. In addition to the colors, the gradient style can also be chosen, such as top-to-bottom, corner-to-corner, or left-to-right. You can also toggle Mini view, which minimizes the control center to display only settings toggles.

Control Center is ad-free and is compatible with Gingerbread and later. If you’d like to check it out, visit the application thread for more information.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
