Waiting For an Inverted Wordsmith App? Wait No More!

It should come as no surprise that we on the XDA Portal have a liking for themed applications and widgets. Holding a special regard is the ever-popular inverted or blacked-out style. Not only do these modifications give your device a personalized and stylized touch, but they also conserve battery life on devices sporting AMOLED displays.

To that end, XDA forum member B-boy™ has taken it upon himself to create an inverted version of the popular Wordsmith app. While some may think that this is a frivolous application to theme, lighting up those pixels that much less can yield appreciable results for those who spend countless hours playing the game.

In the words of the theme maker:

Ok, so this might be a silly app to invert but my wife plays it all the time so I installed it and it’s kinda fun but it needed some doctoring up.. .. I think there’s a paid version but this is just the free one.. it installs like a normal app but you’ll need to uninstall your old one first, then install mine.. on the stock app the text colors all over were secondary system text colors but I am 99% sure I got all of them to point to either #ffffff or primary (which is usually white on stock roms) but let me know if ya find any black on black.

Continue on to the themed application thread to get started. Your AMOLED-wielding device’s battery life is counting on you!
