Rounded Corners for Your Android Device’s Screen

If you’ve heard of webOS, you may or may not be familiar with the rounded corners on many of the OS’s screens. It’s a pleasant aesthetic touch that, surprisingly, no mobile operating system has attempted to emulate (well, besides MIUI for Android). Well, XDA Senior Member and seasoned app developer Mohammad_Adib, who also developed Sidebar and Floating Stickes, has created a neat little app called RoundR that brings those rounded corners over to your Android device.

It may be a small and subtle aesthetic change that RoundR allows for, but for many users, it sure rouses a different feel and finish to their Android device.  Once launched, a notification appears in the slide-down notification area, which once pressed, pops up a hovering settings window. Settings include:

  • Whether to start app on boot
  • Toggle app notification on and off
  • Which corners would be rounded off
  • Size of the corner radius

Also, kudos must be given to Mohammad_Adib for making RoundR open source, allowing fellow members of the community to input their own twist and have their own take with the app. Users can find the source code on Github.

As with Mohammad_Adib’s other applications, RoundR succeeds on simplicity. It’s also small in size, coming in at only 58 kilobytes, and it is compatible with any device running Android version 2.1 or newer. So if this interests you, check out the original thread for more details.

Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
