Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
Update to CoOkie Home Tab Editor v1.7.1
Many of us with HTC’s Sense know all about the CoOkie Home Tab. In fact this is a theme that receives updates constantly, and gets lots of recognition in NRGZ28s ROMs.
No stranger to CoOkies Home Tab is the CoOkie Home Tab Editor (CHTEditor) that has been created and very well updated by johncmolyneux for quite some time. For those of you that do not know, the CHTEditor allows you to control the CoOkie Home Tab with a nice graphical interface. With this new update you now have the ability to have multiple layouts with an easy way to switch between them!

A few options were added & removed from Co0kie’s Home Tab, so the same options have been added/removed from the editor. Some logic has been put in place to make some of the controls context sensitive (you can’t select too many pages for the different quicklink layouts, and you can’t set a default page higher than the number of pages). I’ve also completely rewritten the import/export dialog, and have added the ability to run settings files directly, without opening the editor. This means you can have multiple layouts and switch between them by either running the settings files from a file explorer, running them from the start menu, or adding them as quicklinks.
Check out the application thread for the new update!

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
