Virtual d-pad (WVGA)

Recently a lot of devices have been designed with very large screens, as a result there is no room for a directional pad. However, sometimes a directional pad is needed for certain applications and for casual gaming.

User more_pizza has developed the Virtual d-pad application to solve this problem. The d-pad can be deployed, dismissed and moved around the screen making it easy to use. Once you’re done using the d-pad just tap the “X” button and you’re back to using your device like before.If you really miss having a d-pad for some of your applications give Virtual d-pad a try and provide more_pizza with some feeback.

The application is at a very beginning stage, so please have mercy. If there will be enough interest for this app, I will continue to improve it.Future work includes:

  • interface improvements (transparent images/skins)
  • an application settings window
  • code optimization

Continue on to the application thread for more information.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
