Notification Toggle Refreshed with Holo Style
Two years ago, we talked about an app by XDA Recognized Developer j4velin that provided you quick and convenient access to many frequently changed settings. Back then in the 2.x era, the Android notification system was much less complex and powerful. Two years later, however, notifications are much more powerful, can support rich feedback, and allow you to do many more things. Likewise, j4velin’s app has evolved with the times.
Just as before, Notification Toggle does as you would expect. It allows you to toggle settings of your choosing directly from the notification bar. The visible toggles can be selected within the app’s settings. Furthermore, you can add application shortcuts for easy access. Keep in mind that some settings aren’t directly configurable by default. In other words, if you click the GPS icon, it will take you to the GPS page rather than toggling GPS status. But if your device is rooted, which it likely is if you are reading this, you can install the app directly to /system/app and toggle GPS directly. Finally, the aesthetics of the app’s interface and colors have been heavily tweaked to match the sleek Holo interface.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
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...
