Skydroid: the UI of the Future

Android is diverse. From Themes to Launchers, the strength of Android is (in part) measured by its ability to be customized. While custom launchers are quite common, Skydroid takes differentiation a step further.

Built by a team of 5 developers, and publicly voiced by XDA Senior Member TheRedDrake, Skydroid is an advanced user interface inspired by Windows 8’s Metro UI. Unlike other systems that are only launchers, Skydroid will have around 20 apps involved. Thus far it includes:

1)Dialer
2)SMS
3)Email
4)Calendar
5)People with IM and social
6)Calculator
7)Player
8)Gallery
9)Camera
10)Browser
11)Notes,
12)Stock + Currency converter
13)Meteo
14)Alarm
15)News
16)File manager
17)Settings
18)Launcher

The interface is currently under development with more apps being created, and a release scheduled for March/April. If you would like to make a suggestion or an offer of assistance, send an email to Andreev Yanko here or TheRedDrake here.

So head on down to the thread and take a look around. You might be surprised by what you find.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
