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 »

Text messaging is one of the most popular ways to communicate currently. However, if you are a responsible adult and respect those around you, there are times where you can’t, or shouldn’t, spend a lot of time text messaging. What you need is a way to speed up common text entry.

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

The HTC One Max is HTC’s answer to the incredibly successful Note series by Samsung. With top notch specs, a beautiful screen, and running Sense 6 (as of a couple of months ago), the One Max is a great device to have in your hand if phablets are your thing. If you happen to be an owner of the One Max and are looking to further customize its interface, in a big way or small way, you may want to check out Xtended Settings.
Developed by Senior Member RichmondoUK, Xtended Settings is an Xposed module which allows you to customize myriad aspects of the UI of your One Max. The scope of options allowed pretty much covers everything there is to change, ranging from the status bar and the home launcher, to the system and CPU. Functio. . . READ ON »

Back in April, we talked about a useful Xposed Framework module by XDA Senior Member hamzahrmalik that allowed users to increase the number of allowed lock screen pattern attempts. This is incredibly useful for those who would like to use a particularly difficult to remember and enter lock screen pattern, as well as those who have the pattern set to not display entry attempts.
In the time since, the previously covered module has been discontinued. Luckily, hamzahrmalik followed up on his previous creation with the new LockScreen Tweakbox module, which continues right where its predecessor left off, and adds many new features. In addition to offering unlimited pattern unlock attempts, users . . . READ ON »

Xposed Modules are usually pretty simple. There are a few out there where a Smali edit or a change in build.prop would produce the same result. However, sometimes you just don’t have the time or desire to dig through mountains of build.prop fields to find what you are looking for. But that’s alright, Xposed Module creators have found and shared their tweaks for us.
In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA Developer TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that lets you change the duration between wake locks for one of Google’s location services. XDA Senior Member cryptyk created the NLPUnBounce module. TK shows off the modules and gives his thoughts, so check out this Xposed Tuesday video.. . . READ ON »

One of the best things about the modern day smartphone is its ability to save us time here and there. Features like Google Now keep us apprised of all the relevant news and scores so that we don’t have to manually search for the information ourselves. However, this isn’t the only way in which our smart devices can save us time.
Many of us often use our mobile devices to enter repetitive tidbits of information. XDA Forum Member mikmitch recently realized this, and developed an Xposed module that streamlines the process to make things significantly more efficient.
Example use cases could include using @cell to fill in your cell phone number, @email to fill in your email address, and @addr to . . . READ ON »

Google presented their brand new UI for tablets alongside the release of Android 3.0 Honeycomb back in early 2011. It was widely used on many devices with Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean 4.1, at which point Google finally decided to end this project. The UI was replaced by the Phablet layout in Android 4.2. This Phablet UI is basically the phone layout stretched to match the tablet size.
Google went even further and removed the Tablet UI from source code in Android 4.4, so it’s very difficult to bring it back even by modifying the code. However, XDA Forum Member Exalm gives us an easy opportunity to get the Tablet UI back on your device. This modification comes in the form of an Xposed . . . READ ON »

Most applications on Android play nicely with both landscape and portrait orientation. This, however, is unfortunately not the case for all applications, with games and older applications being the leading culprits. While many of these orientation locked apps truly do work best in their preferred orientation, there are many others that are fully capable of working well in the other orientation but are inexplicably rotation locked.
XDA Senior Member defim was tired of this behavior, so he set out to change it with his latest Xposed module, HaveOwnOrientation. As the module name suggests, HaveOwnOrientation allows you to use any application in any screen orientation of your choosing. With the m. . . READ ON »
