As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
Samsung Galaxy Ace Gets AOKP, ParanoidAndroid, CM10 Kang
Everyone enjoys a good mash-up every now and then. There are a variety of mash-ups out there, from music to pictures to videos. Pretty much everyone has a favorite mash up. One type of mash up we don’t see very often are ROM mash-ups. Unless you have a Samsung Galaxy Ace.
XDA Recognized Contributor nims11 has gone and combined some old favorites into a new flavor. Many can’t decide on whether to flash AOKP, ParanoidAndroid, or CyanogenMod. Well, nims11 solved that problem by kanging all three in one ROM.
Called PAC (Paranoid, AOKP, CM), the ROM brings the best of Jelly Bean all in one package. The PAC ROM was developed by Recognized Contributor szl.kiev for the Xperia Ray. Presumably, it has features from all three ROMs. In addition to posting the ROM, nims11 has also posted a FAQ with pictures to show users how to use it. As per the norm, the ROM has bugs but nothing overly major. The camcorder doesn’t work, no method of tethering works, and due to Qualcomm not releasing OpenMAX libraries, and HQ video playback probably won’t ever work.
Even so, this ROM could be a fun alternative to the usual offerings, and it gives users the chance to see what it would be like if all these ROMs were merged together. If you want to check it out, follow the link to the PAC thread.
