Attention Windows Mobile users, want some Ice Cream Sandwich Love?


Thursday 10th of November 2011 / androidspin.com
Well looky what we have here. Android on a Windows Mobile device, sort of. XDA member lesscro has gone and done it. He has put his skills to work to create a skin for Windows Mobile devices with screen resolutions of 480X800, like the HD2. The skin is built to mimic the look and feel of Ice Cream Sandwich found on the Galaxy Nexus. He has added in the animated unlock screen, incorporated the ICS icons and onscreen keys. The status bar is themed out to look like ICS as well and he recently added the weather forecast app into the mix.Of course the back-end is still all Windows, but at least you can get a new look and pretend a little.If you take a quick watch of the video demo of the skin in action, I think you will be extremely surprised how good it looks and how well it works.Unfortunately the skin isn’t available just yet for you to download. Sadly you poor windows users are still stuck with your current layout, unless you already tweaked it out yourself. If you love the skin, be sure to go ‘LIKE’ Lesscro on his Facebook page.

[Updated: v2] Redditor Creates Mock-Up Of Facebook For ICS, We Can Only Drool


Thursday 04th of April 2013 / androidpolice.com
Facebook’s current Android app has become the subject of much hatred from the Android community – for one thing, it rarely works properly (if at all); for another, its looks have become quite stale. Sadly, we still haven’t seen any plans for future improvements, so Redditor monkfishbandana took it upon himself to come up with a mock-up of how he believes Facebook for Android should look, especially with a beautiful OS like Ice Cream Sandwich.Update: The mocks were updated to v2 - you can view them here (via Reddit). The original mocks are preserved below.Facebook developers, take note:Though there are countless improvements over the real Facebook app, a few key features have been excluded for various reasons:The ‘Timeline’ lacks location and ‘studying at’ icons‘Request’ notifications have been dropped from the action bar and added to the Friends sectionThe ‘Create Event’ and ‘Create Message’ buttons are missingStill, it’s a pretty impressive first try, especially considering that monkfishbandana clai

How to Root the Motorola Flipout - Android Authority


Monday 26th of December 2011 / androidauthority.com
We always want our gadgets to be cool and good-looking aside from being useful. Most of the time, good-looking gadgets are those thin ones with nicely curved bodies. At times though, manufacturers would go out of the usual path and create something unique. And, this is what the Motorola Flipout is all about–a unique smartphone that is different from the usual candy bar style.The Flipout is not your typical smartphone. It features a small 2.8-inch display which, when flipped out, reveals a QWERTY keyboard. We’re not just talking about a screen sliding upwards when you flip it; we are talking about some unique method where the screen pivots around a point in its bottom right corner and flips around.The uniqueness of this smartphone, however, seems to end with its form factor. The device is built with a typical 600 MHz Cortex-A8 TI OMAP 3410 processor and runs Android 2.1 Éclair. One good thing though is that, since it’s an Android device, we can root this smartphone to extend its capabilities.Are you up for some Android hacking action? Read on and check out these easy steps

Everything you want to know about Android's new Navigation Drawer


Sunday 23rd of June 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
Google's Android developers have delivered a great video all about the new Navigation DrawerWe've talked before about how the Android team is serious about design. They want Android, and the great apps that developers create, to not only work well, but to look good. We noticed this at Google I/O in May, that there was a new (and long-awaited) focus on building applications that look like the belong. Apps with aconsistentand elegant user interface, versus the jumble of different design styles and choices of the past.It's a big undertaking. You have to account for different screen sizes, devices with or without the recommended button layout, and most of all you need to find a fluid look and feel that works well for the end user. Nobody likes an app that is difficult to use. Google tried to get everyone on-board with the action bar method, and it's a great solution for some things. But sometimes, you need to get dirty and have a list of user choices and options. That's where the new Navigation Drawer concept comes into play.Grab your phone. Open the YouTube app or G

Where to find - how to?


Saturday 15th of February 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi All, I need to find some how-to on basic Android things. I am having problems with... 1:In the Google search bar if I re-use a search statement it loads it into the bar and then performs the search instantly.How do I add to that search statement before the search is action-ed?e.g.I select "motorola moto x" from a previous search and I want to add " tpu case" to it before it rushes off to find it. 2:The same applies to the Chrome browser when entering a link. I'd like to be able to add to the original search statement to refine it for fewer but more pertinent detail to my search. 3:Is there any drag and drop functionality to move pics from one album to another using the Android Gallery app?If so, how do I do that? 4:In the Gallery app, can I create Folders to keep pics grouped according to a common theme?If so, how do I do that? I am just at the tip of the iceberg of what I do not yet know about Android.
