Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Tutorial: Editing Digital Clocks in Sense
You probably are aware of the many pre-designed clocks for Sense floating around, but this time XDA member kingpin440 wrote a complete tutorial for Windows Mobile devices, so now you can make your own special design for your clock in the home tab.
We highly recommend to ensure that you really understand what are you doing or else you can end up with a bad clock or perhaps even having to do a hard reset.

[TUT] Editing Digital Clocks in Sense
- Download cfc-gui.exe & (optional) manila editor because its a little easier to find files with: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show…00&postcount=1
- Copy all xxxxxxxx_manila files from your windows folder (on phone) to a folder on your pc
- Select the folder you dumped your manila files in as the path in cfc-gui
- Find all the files that relate to the flip clock, not world clock (if you’re using sense 2.5, I wrote down all the files you need to find)
- Go to Tools>Export to PNG’s in cfc-gui
- Edit the .png’s
- Replace the manila files with your edited .png’s with one of the following methods -replace them by just finding the corresponding manila files in cfc-gui and hit “replace with”, where a window will pop up where you can choose your edited .png
You can find more information in the tutorial thread.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.

A new, revamped and open source website is also in the works, with a look inspired by material design. We also got a tip about an...
