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.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
