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.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
