Vybe Generates Your Own Customized Vibrations
The Android operating system is renowned for its extensive customization and flexibility. Not only customizable with the archives of mods and tweaks, Android also allows flexibility through its vast number of available apps. Well now you can customize the vibrations on your phone with an application called Vybe.
Recently popped up in the XDA Forums, Vybe was introduced to us by XDA Forum Member moeedayazbutt. It allows users to define their own vibration pattern for their different contacts. Vibrations can be recorded by tapping a big circular, virtual button, played back, and of course saved. Buttons on either corner on the bottom of the screen allow users to access saved vibrations which then can be played back, with the other button bringing users to a list of contacts which custom ‘vybrations’ can be assigned to. There is also a simple, yet helpful tutorial on Vybe’s initial start up, which can be accessed again through Vybe’s settings screen.
With a potential update in the future from the developer with support for SMS, Vybe is a fun and practical app for those looking for further customization of their Android devices. Available for Android versions 2.2 and newer, Vybe is up for grabs for free in the Play store. So if you’re interested, make sure to check out the original thread.

The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
