Serajr Power Toggles Brings Settings to the Small App World

Ever since the introduction of multi-window with things like Cornerstone and floating apps, there has been a somewhat radical change in the overall Android UI. Granted, not everyone can take advantage of this as most manufacturers do not include such features in their brand UI experience. Samsung is one of the only ones that actually...

Auto Bloat Remover Tool Released for Xperia Mini, Mini Pro, and Active

Bloatware sucks. It takes up space and is usually comprised of applications that no one wants. Even worse, in some cases, it even runs in the background constantly and causes diminished battery life and performance.
