Monitor Your Internet Access with a Colorful Status Bar Clock
“What’s the time?” You probably ask yourself this question countless times during the day. One second later, you’re probably checking the time on your smartphone. However, the system clock in the status bar can’t be modified to much without digging into source code of SystemUI.apk.
Most things in Android can be modified without touching code. This is all thanks to XDA Recognized Developer rovo89 and Recognized Contributor Tungstwenty, who created amazing Xposed Framework. With this tool, even stock ROMs can be made usable and freed from inconveniences. The same applies to the status bar clock, which color can be changed automatically when a device is connected to Internet, thanks to XDA Forum Member stanbel and his Xposed module.
With this module, you will no longer require some pesky arrows showing whether the connection is established or not. If your phone has an access to the Web, the clock becomes green. If not, it is black. The module should work like a charm with all devices running Jelly Bean and KitKat. Since it’s a module, it requires your device to be rooted and you need to have Xposed Framework installed.
You can learn more about the module and get the APK by visiting the original thread. If you want to make your status bar clock a bit unique, make your way there to give it a shot.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
