Change the Volume From the Notification Panel with Xposed

Notification Volume

You know, it seems like a lot of the time it’s simply much easier to navigate to my phone’s ‘sound’ settings and manually change the volume of my music rather than actually pressing the physical volume buttons on the side. Maybe because my device is finally showing its age, or I’m just not patient enough, but on many occasions the volume buttons decide not to trigger, or it changes the wrong type of volume at the good part of the song which absolutely needs to be played at the loudest volume. And I’m sure that many of us share similar gripes with our devices. Lucky for us however, XDA Senior Member hamzahrmalik has developed the perfect Xposed module for the job.

Liven up Your Notification Icons by Animating them with LiveIcons

AOSP SMS

We usually see quite a bit of Android customization in a few select elements of the UI, such as the lock screen, status and navigation bars, and home launcher. However, one of the areas we’ve not seen many people delve into is device animation, particularly with regards to animated notification icons. Perhaps it’s a little too insignificant for anyone to notice, or maybe it just never came across people’s minds, but animated notification icons might be a really fun part of Android customization that no one’s really considered.

With this said, XDA Senior Member hulgo has developed an Xposed module called LiveIcons that animates your Android device’s notification icons. As of right now, the module . . . READ ON »

Don’t Waste Internal Storage; Keep Obb Files on SD Card with Xposed

Android-fat-bloatware-feature

Obb is a data file format used by multiple game developers. Data stored in such a format often contains music, videos, and other large files that are downloaded after the APK is installed. This makes the APK smaller and easier for developers to maintain. (Imagine uploading 2 GB file every time when the app gets updated!)

Additional data files are stored in internal storage, which isn’t a perfect situation–especially for owners of devices with external SD card support. The internal storage gets full in very short time, even when it’s big, so it’s a good practice to use the external SD card to keep these obb files. XDA Recognized Developer moneytoo came up with an interesting s. . . READ ON »

XDA Xposed Tuesday: DonkeyGuard, Don’t Be a Donkey, Control Your Device – XDA Developer TV

donkeyguard

Some applications ask for the world when it comes to permissions. I have spoken to developers who say it’s better to ask for permissions you don’t need, than you have to ask for more permissions in an update. However at some point, you may want to tweak information for certain apps.

In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that lets you take full control over your device.

Take Advantage of the LG G3’s Quick Circle Case with These Cool Graphic Clocks

Urbann Quick Circle Mod

Back in May when the  LG G3 was launched, one of its highly marketed features was its optional Quick Circle case. While not a pioneering venture in its field, this implementation utilized its circular cut-out window for more than just answering phone calls, extending its presence to widgets and full blown apps as well. Despite its rather expansive coverage, the Quick Circle case is best known for circular clocks, which allow the user to place circular widgets on the home screen that remain visible through the cutout. This then offers a variety of glanceable info needing only basic micro-interactions, if at all. However, the default Quick Circle clocks provided by LG have limited options and anyt. . . READ ON »

ChromePie Lets You Navigate the Web in Google Chrome with Pie Controls

ChromePie

Surfing the web on an Android device perhaps isn’t the most smooth experience one can have, especially when compared with using a PC. Maybe the screen is not big enough or not that responsive, or the words displayed are too small. Or maybe the browser you’re using is at fault, which, on many occasions, it tends to be for many people. If you’re using Google Chrome, and feel that its UI is not quite optimal, XDA Forum Member JT5 has developed an Xposed module that hopes to alleviate this problem.

Called ChromePie, the module essentially lets you navigate Google Chrome and Google Chrome Beta with pie controls. Actions include:

  • Back, forward, refresh, new tab, new incognito tab, close tab
    • Add bookmark,
