Turn Your Galaxy Tab Into A Honeycomb Tablet… Cosmetically.

Theming. modifying. changing. It’s what we all love to do, and when we find a way of making the unconventional and improbable a reality, that’s when we all get the most excited. The unconventional and improbable in this case is the ability to make Android 2.3 really look like an imitation of Honeycomb, rather than implimenting just the colours and icons.

XDA member jjhiza has made this possible by posting a rather straight forward, easy to follow, yet indepth guide to making your Galaxy Tab look like it’s running Honeycomb, including the functionality of the widgets.

Why is this better than trying to port over Honeycomb entirely? Well, it makes it easier for those who are not developers, like me. But if you’re a little more hardcore than I am, I’d recommend putting some work into this. It would really be amazing.

Pure Honeycomb Look for Galaxy Tab

Some of you have asked me about my layout, and if you’re checking this thread, you probably love the look of Honeycomb as much as I do. This is my attempt to emulate the general look and feel, while braver souls, like Spacemoose1, attempt to port the actual OS over for us.

If you own a Galaxy Tab and you’d like to give this a whirl, head on over to the original thread!

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...
