Enable hidden features in Twitter for Android with the Tweeks Xposed Module

Despite there being a lot of alternatives to the Twitter app on Android, I like sticking to the regular Twitter app. It works well, it's not overly bloated, and has all the features I need.

Leafster is a powerful search tool for the Google Books database

MyWall is a lightweight wallpaper manager with the ability to extract colors and apply filters

Wallpapers are key to smartphone personalization. Personally, I'm the kind of person that can't stand looking at the same wallpaper for over 2 weeks, so I'm always constantly changing it. I'm not even hugely into switching up layouts, launchers and icon packs, but just having a fresh wallpaper suffices. I always have a collection of...

Download the Motorola Razr’s Retro App, Live Wallpapers, and more

Foldable phones were a big story in 2019 but one brand stole the show with a heavy dose of nostalgia. Samsung's Galaxy Fold may be a bigger, more powerful foldable, but it doesn't have the same name recognition as the iconic razr.
