Minimalist Notification TxMissed Widget for Android

It seems that the new trend of minimalistic, text only icons and widgets for the Home Screen has taken a real hold in the midst of our members. Because of this, we see more and more creations of this kind just making their appearance in our site. This time, XDA member phumpal decided to share his first contribution to the site, which falls under this category. TxMissed is a text only widget that will display number of missed calls and messages in big bold letters on your home screen. Despite its simplicity, the widget looks very good and it is rather clear, which is a good thing for smaller devices with screens that make it more complicated to see small numbers in a small widget like the stock Android ones. The widget is fully configurable to match your current theme.

Please leave some feedback for the dev.

Hello,
i want to contribute with my first widget. It’s text based notification widget. Inform you about unread messages or missed calls. Support verbose number (like 1 = one, 5 = five etc.). Very customizable – color, sizes, text format, bold, stroke … If chosen font does not fit to area, it will be automatically resized to smaller one, which fits. Personally, I use it at Widget Locker screen, so I can easily see count of unread messages. Tested on HTC Desire (Froyo) and emulator (Froyo + Gingerbread)

You can find more information in the widget thread.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
