Modify and Tweak Your Android Phone with Android Tweaker App
You’ve most likely heard of Pimp My Rom, an app offering a variety of mods and tweaks for you to install onto your phone. Now another app has stepped up offering a similar service.
XDA Senior Member iGio90 introduces us to Android Tweaker, an app that provides a wide selection of various tweaks such as noise reduction, force GPU UI rendering (normally accessed through developer options), and a GPS fix. Root access is needed to implement the tweaks. The user interface is very nice and professional, with pages that can be swiped. Pages consist of tweaks and a small description, and check boxes and on/off switches, which the selected tweaks implement once toggled. The developer puts emphasis on the app’s ability to fix GPS issues, with Android Tweaker containing the configuration servers of more than 80 countries of all 5 continents – pretty impressive.
Android Tweaker provides support for all devices and kernels, running on Android versions Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. Learn more by visiting the original thread.
