Xposed GEL Settings Back from the Dead, Works with Google Now Launcher 3.4!

Back in February, we first talked about Xposed GEL Settings. For those who don't remember, this Xposed module changes how the Google Now Launcher works, and gives power users all of the tweaking and customization that should have been there in the first place. As you can imagine, this module quickly became a crowd favorite of anyone rocking a rooted device with Xposed Framework installed. Unfortunately, last Wednesday's update to the Google Search app killed compatibility with Xposed GEL Settings. This wasn't ideal,...

Google Now Backend Update Tells You When a Product You’ve Looked Up is Nearby

Over the last year, Google has been steadily bolstering the capabilities of its nearly telepathic Google Now service. With the most recent app update, Google Now gained the ability to automatically detect and keep track of where you've parked. However, not every increase in functionality requires a new Google Search APK. Not too long ago, we talked about a Google Search backend update brought the ability to "take a picture," as well as "play some music." And before that, another backend update...

Quick Mod Tool Decompiler and Compiler Now a Cross-Platform Utility

Knockr Brings HTC’s Motion Launch Functionality to All OLED Devices

One of the most interesting proprietary features of the HTC One M8 (2014) is undoubtedly Motion Launch. For those who aren't familiar with Motion Launch, it essentially allows you to wake your device from sleep and launch certain apps with a few easy gestures such as bringing the device into a particular orientation and flicking your thumb on the screen. As interesting as Motion Launch is, the feature is unfortunately limited to the M8. Luckily, XDA Forum Member Acela1230 created Knockr to bring some of the...

Flappy 48 is as Frustrating as Flappy Bird and 2048 Combined
