There are some excellent ‘AAA’ tier games by huge development houses that offer fun, and, most of the time, in-app purchases. There is no doubt that some of these games are great. However, at XDA we like to keep an eye on the little guy. Some of the more successful Android developers have started out as the little guy. Today we celebrate another simple game developed by an XDA member. XDA Senior Member Rolf Smit offers up a 2D sandbox...
MetroUI Now Available for the Asus Transformer
A few days ago, we talked about a new skin / UI that showed up for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The MetroUI for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was the creation of XDA Forum Member BroBot175, and it aimed at bringing a more simplified UI, resembling that of the up and coming Windows 8 operating system. The UI overlay works with tiles as widgets that have similar actions to those found in Windows 8 and Windows Phone 7. This is very well designed and has rightfully earned a place in the Portal, particularly of use for those not exactly happy with TouchWiz.
Thanks to the efforts of XDA Forum Member mrevankyle and the collaboration of BroBot175, Asus Eee Transformer owners can enjoy the same great looking experience in their tabs. Thanks to the wonders of the Villain Theme Engine, created by XDA Developer Administrator pulser_g2, this was successfully ported over for us to enjoy. Most features seem to be working properly, but as this is still a work in progress you are bound to run into a few bugs such as some widgets not working properly like the music player one. There are a few WP7 players in the Play Store that will help give your MetroUI the finishing touches.
Please try it out and leave any feedback so that bugs can be addressed.
mrevankyle kindly ported most of the theme for me as i have no experience in Villain Theme installer so all credit in porting this theme goes to him!
