Marriage Proposal, the XDA Way

It’s not very often that we cover things that are of the lovey-dovey nature. When it comes to fuzzy feelings and warm emotions, the most that the typical XDA member gets is the fuzzy feeling of finally getting a long awaited firmware update, or the warm happiness that comes when a particularly difficult person is banned by our dedicated moderators. Sometimes some of the actual fluffy stuff shows up on XDA, and sometimes it’s rather unique.

XDA Forum Member robo4130 wanted to propose to his girlfriend using a custom boot animation. The premise was to have her turn her device on and see the proposal as written:

Brittany….

your make my life complete

i love the little things u do

i want you to make me

the most luckiest guy on earth

will
you
marry
me????

So where does one go when one needs a boot animation like this? XDA, of course, and that’s where robo4130 came. Unfortunately, no one was able to come through with the boot animation. XDA Recognized Themer zanderman112 had an alternate idea, however, to use a live wallpaper. The idea was to clear out the main home screen, install and set the live wallpaper, and then make her look at it.

We won’t spoil whether or not it worked. Okay, we will: She totally said yes. You can see the entire story unfold in the robo4130’s marriage proposal thread.

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
