Windows Phone 7 Style Notifications

Following with Windows Phone 7 style applications, XDA member Jaxbot presents a new way to get notifications in the classic WP7 blue style.
The application is still under development and for now only pops up notifications for new e-mail or new text message.
Just tap on notification to open or click anywhere else to ignore. It runs fluid on Windows Mobile devices running 6.5 and up. Since there is no info regarding what resolutions are supported, I tested it on the Leo and it works fine.

[APP] Windows Phone 7 like notifications (experimental)

Hello! Here’s an experimental application I’ve been working on as a side project. I’m not sure whether or not I’ll continue it, but I thought I’d share what I have so far.

This application will display the Windows Phone 7 style notification using the top bar on the top coming down and displaying the notification. The current application you are using will be paused until you either ignore or view the notification.

To view the notification, click on the blue bar.
To ignore the notification, double-tap anywhere that is NOT the blue bar (grayed out screen).
To use it, simply install the CAB file below. Then run it from the start menu, and keep it running in the background.
Also, disable any “Display message on screen” options for your current notifications.

Currently the only supported notifications are New Email and New SMS.

You can find more information in the application thread.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.
