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.

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...
