As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
Modify Per-App Settings with App Settings Xposed Module
Recently, we talked about an Xposed module that brought a little piece of the Paranoid Android experience to everyone through the use XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s and Recognized Contributor Tungstwenty‘s powerful Xposed Framework (thread). That Xposed module gave users of any Android 4.0+ ROM a taste of Paranoid Android’s Halo. However, most users would say that Paranoid Android’s biggest defining feature is its on-the-fly and per-app layout and dpi settings. Unfortunately, the previously covered module offered nothing to replicate this.
Developed by the creators of Xposed themselves (Recognized Contributor Tungstwenty and Recognized Developer rovo89), the App Settings Xposed module helps bridge the gap somewhat, while offering many additional features that could be useful to users of any ROM.
App Settings allows users to modify the DPI, font scale, screen dimensions, xlarge qualifier, locale, full screen, title bar, orientation settings, and much more—all on a per-app basis. It even allows you to revoke permissions, modify how notifications show up, and change how the app is kept in memory.
While App Settings doesn’t directly enable you to change the layout, as you can on Paranoid Android, there are many settings available that aren’t easily changed otherwise, making it a powerful option for anyone. Head over to the module thread to get started.
