Try Android L Apps on Your Device
Over the last few days, most of our news has been related to Android L. This upcoming upgrade is quite a big deal for all Android users. The Developer Preview has already been launched for Nexus 5 and 7 (2013), allowing users of those two devices to test drive the new OS a bit early. However, not everyone owns a Nexus 5 or 7.
Since most of us can’t wait for its official release, XDA Senior Member ivan123 posted a full system dump with wallpapers, fonts, ringtones, boot animation, and of course built-in applications from Android L. All files can be downloaded as a bundle or individually, so it’s up to you to decide what suits you most. Some apps are already proven to work with KitKat or Jelly Bean, while others (such as Chrome and Google Earth) still have problems and force close.
If you’re looking for some of the L goodies, head over to the original thread and give these files a shot. And if you want to learn more about Android L, check out its continuing coverage here on the XDA Portal.

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....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
