Space Ball Basketball Game for Android

Let’s face it, there are times when you are stuck to one spot for a period of time, bored out of your mind. You could pick up a newspaper someone left in the stall, but who knows where that’s been, right? And it’s probably made of recycled paper from that very bathroom, so why chance it? Well XDA Forum Member renatoboucas created what may be the perfect solution for when you need to pass the time with his Space Ball game.

Space Ball brings the carnival and arcade basketball games, where you try and shoot a ball into a moving basket, to the realm of a space ship in, well, space. Using the gyroscope in your phone, you move the player side-to-side to catch any bouncing basketballs, and then you position the cross-hairs with your finger going up and down on the screen and let go. You get points if you score, and more points if you score multiple baskets at once via combo bounces, and even more points the higher the basket you choose. It can get quite addicting.

Check out the application thread for more information and to offer feedback to the developer.

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.
