Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen.

Make the Indeterminate Progress Bar Look More Fluid with Xposed
Recently, we’ve covered dozens of amazing Xposed modules. This isn’t going to change any time soon, as amazing modules are created almost every day, and it’s really hard to envision an end of this amazing phenomenon.
XDA Senior Member MohammadAG created a module to replace the indeterminate progress bar with a smoother variant. The progress bar that I’m writing about can be seen while loading Internet pages in the web browser or syncing a new account.
The developer replaced it with one similar to what is currently used in Gmail application when the messages are refreshed. MohammadAG presented the difference in a .GIF] animation, which can be found in this post.
The project is open source, so it allows other developers to contribute the code and make it even better. As you can see, Xposed Framework can be used to port some great functions like in GravityBox, but also for theming. That only proves how innovative this technology is.
If you use Xposed Framework and want to change some animations in your current ROM, make your way to the module thread and give it a try.

We’ve gotten messages and comments requesting for a clearer distinction between these for future reference, which is why we are writing this feature. Let’s start...
