NxtLockScreen with Music Toggles on the Xperia Play

Getting the next best thing isn’t always about getting entire ROMs ported to your device. Sometimes it can come through in pieces, one application at a time. In these cases, users get to experience the latest and greatest without having to flash a half working port. This has especially been true for the Sony Xperia line up, which really has set the gold standard in sharing development. Even Google wants to share with Sony Xperia. Now, Sony Xperia Play users are getting some more Xperia shared love in the form of a new lock screen.

Called NxtLockScreen, the lock screen gives users a fresh taste of Xperia goodness as well as a few other modifications. Some include a themed battery and a centered clock. The main features, though, are the ability to set your own lock screen wallpaper and the inclusion of music toggles. To use the music toggles, users just need to swipe the clock and they appear. It was posted by XDA Senior Member sdojoin and based off of work done by XDA Senior Member DiKeJ.

It is also quite easy to install, as it comes in a recovery-flashable zip. It is still in testing, but most reports that it works well with most ROMs. For more info, check out the original thread.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
