XSense Brings Massive Customization to Sense-Based ROMs using Xposed
If you are an Xposed user and you own (or have owned) a Samsung or Nexus device, chances are that you’ve heard of XDA Recognized Developer wanam‘s fantastic Wanam Xposed modules. We first talked about wanam’s module for Samsung TouchWiz ROMs back in August of last year. Not too long after, a similar module popped up for Nexus devices. For those who don’t remember, these modules allow users to enjoy quite a few additional features and added customization without much effort.
Now, wanam is back with another customization-enabling Xposed module. As one would expect from its name, XSense is meant for HTC Sense devices. XSense brings quite a bit to the table for Sense users running Xposed. This includes call recording, additional app rows on the BlinkFeed launcher, a reboot menu with more options, the ability to skip music tracks with the hardware volume buttons, dual-pane preferences, tweaked status bar clock notifications, and much, much more.
Thanks to the power of Xposed Framework, XSense allows users to tweak their stock or near-stock ROMs without any permanent modifications. The only requirement is that you’re rooted, have Xposed Framework installed, and be running a stock or near-stock Sense-based firmware based on KitKat.
It’s nice to see wanam bring his bag of tricks over to Sense-based devices. You can learn more by heading over to the module thread.

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?
