This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see? While we've got a lot of leaked information from the highly expected S6 and M9, there is still a lot to learn about both - and about everything else that will be shown. What kind of trends will...
WSM Tools Brings Impressive Customization to MIUI V5
Not too long ago, XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) was updated to add support for several new platforms. Among those to benefit were MIUI users. With version 2.3, anyone running a MIUI ROM based on Android 4.0 or later could access the almost endless tweaks housed within the hundreds of Xposed modules currently available. Naturally, however, not every available module works perfectly on dramatically different ROMs such as ones based on MIUI.
In order to better meet the needs of MIUI users, XDA Senior Members BalcanGSM and BurgerZ created WSM Tools based on rovo89’s open source Xposed Framework. The project, just like Xposed, allows you to modify applications during runtime, without actually interfering with the application itself.
WSM Tools is compatible with both Xposed modules and modules written expressly for WSM Tools. Within the app itself, you can access two repositories of modules. You can access modules from the official Xposed repository, as well as a WSM-specific repo. Currently, there are 12 WSM-specific modules available, as well as an open API for creating more.
Naturally, you’ll need root access to install the framework, and thus far, it is only tested on MIUI v5. Make your way over to the application thread to learn more.

Last week, I wrote about the best apps to unleash the raw photographic power of your Lollipop smartphone. All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
