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.

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
