Spruce Up Your Home Screens in Two Easy Steps
As we’ve mentioned several times in the past, one of the most amazing aspects of Android is the freedom it gives its users with regards to customization. Today, we present a couple more ways created by members of our little forum to help differentiate your device from the sea of ‘Droids.
We’ve all loaded up custom wallpapers on our devices. That’s one of the first changes we all make to our devices. In fact, as of iOS4, even our cousins who play for the other team can do so as well. And as of Android 2.1 Eclair, we in the Android camp can even set live wallpapers. Now thanks to a little bit of elbow grease from XDA forum member GingerEffect, we have an automated background switcher that calls upon live wallpaper functionality to update itself every day with content from interfaceLIFT.
OK. So you’ve got yourself a nice, dynamically updating wallpaper. Now what? Good thing you asked, as there is yet another treat new treat courtesy of XDA forum member philleonard. Given that battery life is such a concern on modern devices, wouldn’t it be nice to have an aesthetically pleasing way of monitoring your power level? Thanks to philleonard‘s transparent widget, this is now possible. Further catering to users’ customization needs, users can tweak the look by toggling a text label underneath the icon.
Has your aesthetic appetite been piqued? If so, be sure to visit the automated wallpaper and battery widget threads.

We have the solution with several guides aimed at getting you started to build your own modules, something that may be daunting but can open an entire new field of development with a little time and effort. Where better to start than at the beginning? Rovo89 has created a straight forward tutorial for getting started with development for Xposed....
We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
