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.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
