Themer Beta by MyColorScreen is Coming Soon

Our Android Themes forum  is filled with people showing off their custom designed homescreens. These are among the most popular threads on all of XDA, and the ability to customize is one of the things that we most love about Android.

A little over a year ago, we discovered a small site called MyColorScreen that was built for sharing Android themes. Designers can upload screenshots, “tag” them to show what widgets and launchers were used, and share the graphic assets required to replicate the themes. Today, it’s probably the most known site among this community of designers. We decided to form a partnership with MyColorScreen, and as with Swappa.com, XDA members are able to authenticate on MyColorScreen directly with their XDA accounts.

The problem with theming as it exists today, obvious to anyone who’s tried to create copies of home screens posted on MyColorScreen or on XDA, is that it’s difficult and very time-consuming. Depending on your device and resolution, it’s extremely frustrating to get everything just right.

For the past nine months, we’ve been working with MyColorScreen, which is headquartered with its development team in Irvine, California (about 3,000 miles from the XDA offices), to build an app that dramatically simplifies theming both for designers and end-users. The product, Themer by MyColorScreen, allows users to apply themes in one click. The video teaser is below. If you want to sign up for the beta, visit http://www.themerapp.com/

We’ve received lots of questions about how Themer works. We promise to post another article here soon with more answers.

P.S. If you’re a really good theme designer and want to be part of the Themer design team (and get early access to the app), send an email with a link to your work to admin@mycolorscreen.com.

Making Your Own Xposed Modules Is Easier Than You Think

Close to the heart of XDA is the Xposed Framework by Rovo89. Most of us will have used it but you may feel that the module repository is missing something. 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....

ZenFone 2 Lolliflash and ZenPower Giveaway!

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.
