ThemeMachine Gives a Helping Hand when Porting Themes
Theming for Android can be an incredibly time consuming and often monotonous process. The amount of files and edits involved in making even simple can changes can be significantly more than you might initially expect. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to automate the task of swapping out .png after .png when attempting to port a theme from one device to another? ThemeMachine by XDA Senior Member luxxx123 does exactly this.
If your faced with the task of transferring your work (or someone else’s, assuming you have permission) from one device to another, ThemeMachine allows you to transfer as many image files as possible in one bulk action. The tool itself is a Windows executable, which runs on XP and upward. Simply run the script, specify your base APK and your target APK, then let ThemeMachine automatically transfer all of the images which are present in both of the APK files. All the specifics of how to fully use this tool and exactly how the process works are covered in detail by the developer.
This isn’t an instant one-click solution to transferring a theme, though. You’ll still be faced with the task of rummaging through .xmls and tying up loose ends. However, it will make things significantly less tedious. Be sure to check out the original thread for more information if you’re partial to a little theming.

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
