Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle.

LCD Density Changer Application v3.0 Released
Following on from our recent news ‘Get Higher Resolution On Your Captivate‘, a tweak by XDA member jdsmler to get a higher res effect on the Samsung Captivate, now comes an application by XDA member appelflap. The tweak proved so popular that the dev has written an application to apply tweak.
Released only a few days ago, LCD Density Changer is already at version 3.0, now including a built-in boot monitor. This gives the option to keep the new density setting on reboot. If for some reason, it is not possible to provide user input into this option, the default is for the app to apply the old density setting on reboot.
Additionally, appelflap has included a help file in the application with some important information.
To download the apk and for more information, head on over to the application thread. A donate version of LCD Density Changer is also available in the Market for EUR 0.75.
