Full Screen Your Apps on KitKat with Immerse Me

QsPCvYwl.png

Expanded Desktop, also known as Immersive Mode, is one of the coolest features available in CyanogenMod and other custom ROMs. For those unfamiliar, it is essentially full-screen mode, where the menu and status bar are hidden and appear when you pull your finger from top of the screen vertically.

Many of you can’t have (blame manufacturers or carriers for locking your bootloaders) or don’t want to use custom ROMs. But now, it’s possible to use the Immersive Mode without changing your ROM. All you need to do is to use the Xposed Framework module created by well known XDA Senior Member MohammadAG. This module defaults to set Immersive Mode on all applications, but it will be possible to do this . . . READ ON »

Make the Indeterminate Progress Bar Look More Fluid with Xposed

b29c8397-11d1-ffc9

Recently, we’ve covered dozens of amazing Xposed modules. This isn’t going to change any time soon, as amazing modules are created almost every day, and it’s really hard to envision an end of this amazing phenomenon.

XDA Senior Member MohammadAG created a module to replace the indeterminate progress bar with a smoother variant. The progress bar that I’m writing about can be seen while loading Internet pages in the web browser or syncing a new account.

The developer replaced it with one similar to what is currently used in Gmail application when the messages are refreshed. MohammadAG presented the difference in a .GIF] animation, which can be found in this post.

Build Apps that React to Google Search Using Xposed

IWbHojml

Just yesterday, we briefly touched upon a Google Search update that brought the ability to search within apps directly from within Google Search. This update, which is gradually being rolled out to end-user devices, has the potential to make Google Search significantly more powerful. Rather than having to open an application to search within the app, Google Search can now act more like global search.

Unfortunately, there are a few limitations with Google’s first party offering. First of all, there are only a few apps that are compatible with this new functionality. Some of the biggest partners so far include IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Wikipedia, and a few others—though support can be added thr. . . READ ON »

AOSP Status Bar Toggles on Xperias Running 4.2 with Xposed

z1 aosp toggles

With the latest Android 4.2 update for the few Xperia devices in the last couple of months, came a much welcomed enhancement to the otherwise lackluster status bar toggles. Rather than restricting users to the inadequate four default toggles, Sony has loosened the reins by allowing up to 15 toggles to be added, removed, and rearranged. The most obvious problem with this, however, is the clutter that inevitably spawns from the combination of multiple rows of toggles and a couple of ongoing notifications.

It’s probably one of the reasons why XDA Senior Member MohammadAG created an Xposed module for the Xperia Z1, replacing these toggles with AOSP ones. That means out with the clutter, and in with the . . . READ ON »

AOSP Lock Screen on Certain TouchWiz Devices with Xposed

Untitled-1

It’s no secret that Samsung has seen incredible success with its Galaxy line of Android phones. In fact, the company’s profitability makes up such a large slice of the Android pie, that the Android ecosystem is quickly turning into the Samsung ecosystem. While much of Samsung’s success is due to their heavy marketing presence, the rest is down to the various innovations found in their products and how they cater well towards their users. That said, not everything is perfect for every user with Samsung’s offerings. And to the many who prefer vanilla Android, TouchWiz is a drawback rather than an asset.

Sure, you can wipe your default firmware and install a custom, AOSP-based ROM on . . . READ ON »

Easily Download Content from Instagram and Vine

BEuobK1l

If you’re an Instagram user, you’ve probably noticed how difficult it is to save an image to your computer. Sure, you could always take a screenshot of what’s displayed onscreen or peer into the HTML source on the desktop website, but these are rather inconvenient. Plus, if you simply take a screenshot, you end up having to crop your capture to only include the subject of interest. The same goes for the relatively new video sharing service Vine. You could easily set up a video capture program to save content to your device, but that’s far from convenient.

To help you save your favorite Instagram and Vine content locally, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG created two simple modificatio. . . READ ON »

Disable New NFC Tag Popup for Empty Tags with Xposed

kimtag-nfc-logo

If you’ve played around a bit with NFC, you’ve undoubtedly received the New Tag Collected message quite a few times. Normally, this message appears when you scan an NFC tag that is either empty or contains simple text. However, sometimes this may become a nuisance, especially when you have another application performing tasks when encountering empty tags.

Thankfully, there’s an app Xposed module by XDA Senior Member MohammadAG for that. If the name sounds familiar, it should. MohammadAG is also responsible for the fantastic NFC Unlocking app we covered a few days ago, as well as quite a few other apps we’ve featured here on the XDA Portal.

Unlock Your Phone Using NFC

GJ1zqCYl

Over the last few months, we’ve talked about many different of simulating some of the built-in features of the Moto X on other devices. This includes apps (and open source projects) that deliver Active Display functionality and make Google Now listen to you at all times. A new modification courtesy of XDA Senior Member MohammadAG has appeared, and it allows any NFC tag to be programmed to function like the Motorola Skip.

The app, aptly titled NFC Unlocking, comes in the form of an Xposed Module. Because of this, you will need to have XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) installed. Once the module is installed, simply activate it from your modules list and re. . . READ ON »

Tinted Status Bar Brings App-Specific Color Changes

Capture

If you’ve been following the rumor mill surrounding Android 4.4 KitKat, you’ve surely seen the unverified leaked images of the new status bar. Rather than being a static shade, many think that the next revision of the OS will feature a dynamically colored status bar that changes depending on the app currently in view. This isn’t a new feature, however.

We’ve seen options to allow for this implemented by the Paranoid Android team for quite some time. However, it would be nice to see this in first party form, as well as being made accessible to all users on the latest OS. Until then, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG has us covered with an Xposed module aimed at doing exactly that.

Multiple Widgets and Camera on Secure Lock Screen for TouchWiz 4.2 Devices

Capture

The lock screen widgets functionality that was introduced with Android 4.2 is incredibly useful. Lock screen widgets deliver at-a-glance information quickly and easily—without the need to fumble across home screens, apps, and menus. Their utility is then compounded when used in conjunction with lock screen security, since you can access this information without having to first unlock your device.

For some reason, however, Samsung decided that this functionality wasn’t important enough, as they have removed the possibility to add widgets when the device is secured. Thankfully, XDA Forum Member MohammadAG has created a quick modification that brings this functionality back. . . READ ON »

Control all Media Players on the Galaxy S 4 S-View Flip Cover

Capture

While it’s quite pricey, the S-View Flip Cover for the Galaxy S 4 is a pretty cool accessory. Allowing you to see alerts, answer and reject calls, see what song is playing, and view other vital information; the flip cover helps make your smartphone just a little bit smarter. However, by default the media player integration only works with the Samsung-provided media player.

Thankfully, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG has created an Xposed module (development thread) that allows you to display metadata from the following players: the Stock Samsung Media Player, Google Play Media Player, Poweramp, and limited support for other media players that use the metachanged intent and media button. . .

Fine Tune Your Device’s Flashlight with Adjustable Torch

ki1y7U7l

You’ve no doubt seen those apps that allow you to use your rear-facing camera’s flash as a flashlight. However, one thing you’ve undoubtedly never seen is an app that allows you to fine tune its brightness and control exactly how much light is emitted. This is exactly what XDA Forum Member MohammadAG has done with his latest application Adjustable Torch.

Adjustable Torch is verified compatible with the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note II, but it should be compatible with any phone that uses the file /sys/class/camera/flash/rear_flash. Even better than the app’s functionality itself, however, is how MohammadAG’s spirit of sharing. He has made his application open source . . . READ ON »

Maximize Lock Screen Widgets with Xposed Module

Capture

Lock screen widgets are incredibly useful tools. They give us glanceable information before we even unlock our devices. And depending on their contents, they allow us to quickly determine whether we need to unlock and use our phones before we actually use them.

However, as useful as lock screen widgets are, their functionality is often limited by the amount of screen real estate they are given to work with. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG has the perfect solution with his Xposed module. (If you’ve not yet heard of Xposed, be sure to read our introductory article about the fantastic and versatile framework.)
