Ultimate Dynamic NavBar Given Substantial Overhaul

Back in June, we took a quick look at Ultimate Dynamic NavBar by XDA Senior Member MrBIMC. The application was originally created to solve one of the most common complaints with the on-screen navigation bars most prominently seen on Google Nexus devices. The app was created to replace the ever present on-screen navigation bar with a panel that is only visible when you want it to be.

Over the last few months, Ultimate Dynamic NavBar has evolved considerably. For starters, the responsiveness of the app’s navigation bar has been increased dramatically. Animations as well as rotation support have also been added to make the bar look and feel like the real thing. A swipe-up reveal function was also incorporated in order to make the process of summoning the navigation bar as easy as possible.

While the above features add to the app’s overall level of polish, the most significant new feature is the addition of an Xposed module to hide the default on-screen navigation keys. This is important because it removes the need to modify your build.prop in order to disable the on-screen keys. Instead, you now simply activate an Xposed module. And if anything goes wrong, you can simply deactivate the module in just a few clicks.

Just as before, this is normally a paid application. However, MrBIMC was so kind as to provide XDA community members with a free copy of the premium app. Make your way over to the original thread to get started. Now that the app is better than ever, users with on-screen navigation buttons looking to optimize their screen real estate would be silly to not give this a shot.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
