Themer Forums Added
Along with the gang at MyColorScreen
, we’ve been working on a new (non-root) app for one-click Android theming called Themer (now on Google Play
). The themes apply with all wallpapers, icons, widgets, and launcher settings pre-configured. It’s still in closed beta, and the team is constantly adding new features and more themes. Themer requires an activation code to actually use right now (which you can sign up for at ThemerApp.com
). There is a wait list to get a code, but we know the devs are trying to speed up the pace of getting those out.
The Android theming forums
here at XDA are extremely popular, and we know there are lots of amazing tools out there that help people customize their home screens. Themer isn’t trying to replace all those. In fact, you’ll find it missing some features from the top launchers. But it does make the whole process easier and more streamlined. It’s for people who want the pretty without all the work.
Several people have asked for a Themer forum here on XDA, where they can talk about the app and share zips of themes they have created with it. We are launching this today, and you can find it here
Themer supports devices running Android 4.1+. If you’re running a ROM that alteres the DPI or available screen pixels, then you might have problems getting themes to show in the app. Themer supports the follow screen resolutions:
- 1920×1080+soft keys
- 1280×720+soft keys
- 960×540+soft keys
Here are several videos that show off what Themer is and how to use it:

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
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...
