Shake2PlayNext for Android Released

To many of us, the feeling of being able to listen to our favorite music on the go, without carrying several devices, is the reason why we purchase high tech mobile phones (either WM, Android, or iPhone). However, there comes times when we get to a song in present in our playlists that we simply don’t feel like listening to at the time, but we are busy doing things with our hands and cannot change the song. To solve this dilemma, XDA member atrant has created a nice little app, which makes use of the built in accelerometer in many of our Android devices. In essence, it allows you to shake the device to change the song to the next one on the playlist. So, say your device is in a holder on your waist or in your pocket. By shaking your body (and hence the device), the currently playing will skip to the next one.

Like to listen to the music while on road? With this app you won’t need to get the phone from your pocket to play next! Shake your pocket to play next track!

Supports default player (including HTC), MortPlayer, Mixzing.

Currently doesn’t work on some devices while screen is off =( but there will be an option later to keep screen on.

You can find the download link and some discussions in the application thread.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it.
