Make Your Own QR Codes – The Speedy Way

There are many delightful apps to help create and read QR codes, but sometimes it's helpful to have an even easier method of creating codes rather than downloading an app. Speed is everything in this day and age.XDA member 96edwy has created a short and simple video tutorial on how to create your very own...

‘Mind-Bending’ Portal 2 Boot Animation

Now, don't think I'm being generalistic here, but chances are the majority of you are gamers, and quite avid one's at that. I love a good ol' game myself, especially on Steam. All of Valve's source games have been fantastic, from the release of the heroic Half-Life with Gordan Freeman to the mind-bending adventure, Portal....

Get ADW Launcher 2 in Beta!

When I discovered this thread, it shocked me slightly as to the fact that it hasn't received more 'buzz'. ADW, to me, has always been a pretty dandy launcher. It's always ran quickly, had awesome customising options and rarely crashed (if ever). That's why when I found out ADW has a second version in beta,...

Manage All Your Boot Animations with Bootanimation Utility

Sometimes, for however short amount of time it may be on for, it's nice to be greeted by your phone by a potentially awesome boot animation. Now, that's all well and good, but getting the boot animation onto your phone and setting it to run is usually best done with an app. I'm sure there...

Jazz Up With Some Spiffy HTC Sense 3.0 Wallpapers

You know that new version of Sense 3.0? The pretty one? Yeah, that one. There's been a lot of talk about it on XDA recently. Generally because it's so nice, several people have taken up the challenge of porting it to other devices. (Also because HTC said we couldn't. But that's neither here-nor-there). What certainly...

Go Keyboard V0.0.7 from Go Dev Team

If you're at all familiar with the Go Dev Team, you'll know that most of their developments are not only free, but spiffing beyond belief. Go Weather is a fantastically coded app, as is Go SMS, Go Contacts, Go Dialer, and Go Launcher. Basically, in short, you can't go wrong with a bit of wonderful...

Poll: Vote for Your Favourite MIUI ROM Slogan

If you're at all familiar with MIUI roms, you'll know that they really are, in the words of Chad Hughes, 'the closest things to an Android OS replacement'. So, taking that into account, when we found out that XDA member vividmiui, an MIUI developer from the China team, created a poll to find out which...

Tablet Optimised HoneyBread V4 Theme for CM7

If you're one of those clever chappies' who uses Cyanogen Mod 7 after the several fantastic RC and stable releases, you'll most likely be familiar with its great theme engine. It's a great idea, we know. But if you're a Honeycomb person, like me, and you like the icons used and the way it works...

Zeam Launcher 2.9.1 Released – Goes From Snail to Hare

We've had a lot of interesting additions to the launcher range on XDA recently. There's been the expensive and very buggy SPB Shell, the free (similar to SPB Shell) and not so buggy Regina 3D, the tablet orientated VTL.Launcher and the extremely innovative, but very slow, Claystone. However, those rather intensive launchers aside, if you're...

Honeycomb Lockscreen for Android 2.3

Do you like the Honeycomb lockscreen, but only have a tablet that will run Gingerbread, or a smartphone that runs the same? Well gee, don't be down! Turn that frown upside down!XDA member Drakknar has designed a pretty fantastic lookalike Honeycomb lockscreen for Gingerbread. Not only does it look great as a concept design, works...
