Run Your Apps From SD With DarkTremor App2SD for Android

Quite possibly, one of the greatest advancements in the Android development world was the ability to run apps onto the external memory. App2SD allowed users to overcome the limitation of space, which becomes apparent as games and apps require more and more memory to be stored and to run from. You are probably familiar with App2SD and more than likely, you are also aware that Froyo comes with this feature as well. However, they are limited in what they can do and allow to do. XDA member tkirton brings us Darktremor App2SD, which is like App2SD but on steroids. This app offers extended functionality such as the ability to move Dalvik cache to SD, it can protect from boot loops in case that something went wrong with the card, allows to modify the heap size of the Dalvik cache, and much more. Also, this is built to use EXT2, EXT3, and EXT4 file systems, which are native to Linux environments, thus making this more compatible with older versions of Android as well.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. If you have suggestions that could make this better, please share them with the dev.

This is Darktremor Apps2SD, a multipurpose program that primarily allows a user to execute applications created for the Android OS on their Secure Digital card (with the proper setup…more on that later). But, Darktremor Apps2SD is all about stability. The goal is to be able for all users of the Android OS to be able to take advantage of a method to run their applications from a secure digital card.

You can find more information in the application thread.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.
