Universal MIUI Theme Editor
One of the biggest appeals of Android—aside from it being open source—is the ability to customize every aspect to get a completely individual and unique experience. Users and developers alike have used countless tools, ROMs, themes, modifications, and whatever else they can get their hands to customize their Android experience.
MIUI users running Windows now have another tool, with which to customize Android. XDA Forum Member Clever_Name_Here has released a PC based tool that will allow the average user to theme their MIUI ROM manually. The Theme Editor includes a number of features, including the ability to change things like the splash screen, boot animation, re-sizing and editing icons in various ways, and even features a text editor for those aficionados who would rather edit the code. Additionally, the PC app will be supported for quite some time, and the developer is asking for feature suggestions on future releases. Need a little more? The themes created in the theme editor should be compatible with all iterations of MIUI no matter what phone it is running on.

While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
