Try Out OmniROM’s Multiwindow on Every ROM with Xposed

Multi-window is one of the hottest and most unique aspects of OmniROM. The ability to use two applications at the same time is quite useful, and hopefully it will be included in nightly program soon. Multi-window is still described as work in progress, and XDA Senior Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD is working hard to make it as bug-free as possible.

Multi-window has already been implemented in various custom ROMs, but now this feature can be tried through the magic of Xposed Framework. XDA Forum Member LovewuChin created a module that lets users open two applications at the same time. Those applications can be used simultaneously in two work spaces, which can be switched to portrait or landscape mode. This module is still at a very early stage of development, but it’s quite functional. Thus you may notice some problems with specific apps, but most of them work just fine. App compatibility isn’t the only issue, though, as some application activities cannot be launched. Nevertheless, XMultiWindow is a great tool to try multi-window on anything with Xposed installed.

This Xposed module can be found in the original thread. So if you want to try to test multi-window and are running Xposed, don’t hesitate to give this a shot!

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

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...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

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....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

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...
