Zombify Your Friends with Rotten Friends
It’s not quite Halloween yet, but that’s no reason to not get into the spirit of things 10 months early. XDA Forum Member HellGames has developed a niche little app called Rotten Friends for all those who may be fans of the horror genre.
Rotten Friends is an app that allows you to transform, or zombify if you will, pictures of friends, animals, and the sorts without having to rely on software such as Photoshop. After loading your canvas with a picture, the UI gives multiple elements and images you can overlay onto the original. With a couple of drags and drops, I transformed the default image of a kitten into a horrifying creature straight out of Walking Dead.
The interface consists three main options on the top: the main menu, the graphic elements, and paint and erase. A bar at the bottom correlates with the main option chosen, and in turn, display further actions. You can save, share, and upload images through the main menu. The graphic element contains six main categories of overlays including masks, weapons and surgical tools splashed with blood, and macabre facial elements. Please do bear in mind that the free version only allows for 2 free ‘saves’ of images through the app, which we do hope will be increased in the future.
Compatible with Android versions 2.1 and newer, Rotten Friends has a limited trial version in the Play store. If you would like to check Rotten Friends out, make sure to head over to the original thread for more details.

Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
