Inside themes in Sense 7 and the HTC One M9

HTC’s new theming community is a powerful and relatively easy way to customize your phone.

One of the more exciting (yet imperfect) features on the HTC One M9 and a major part of the new Sense 7 is the use of themes. Back in the day it would take some pretty serious hackery to theme a phone. Then custom ROMs started to bake in theming. And finally the manufacturers have gotten into the game.

Adobe shares their future plans for Android

Adobe has slacked behind in bringing many of their mobile apps to Android in recent years, as they opted instead to focus on other platforms instead. While it can be seen as a good thing, since they can work out kinks and issues on other platforms before they hit Android, it does put us behind in getting to test their latest apps and services. It appears that others have noticed as well, as Adobe today released a press statement sharing  [Read More...]
