The invisible home screen: an ultra minimal theme, or excellent April Fool’s Day prank

This theme pulls double duty as an April Fool’s prank and testament to Android’s customizable beauty.

There are few themes that are quite as flexible and adaptable as what I like to call the “invisible” home screen. It’s a theme that could only exist on Android, and it is both high art and farce. It is both a prank and a functional beauty. Setting up this theme is quite easy, it can work with just about any  [Read More…]

LWP+ lets you force Android 8.1 Oreo’s dark theme with any wallpaper

Because who doesn’t want dark mode all the time?

Google introduced a lot of fun software goodies with the Pixel 2, one of which is a dark theme that can be enabled depending on which wallpaper you’re rocking. If you add a dark enough wallpaper to your home screen, Android’s stark white paint job in the quick settings, app drawer, folder backgrounds, and Google Feed page is replaced with a sleek, dark/black look.

This is a great  [Read More…]

Android P may launch with a native dark theme

Our relentless nagging has worked.

Over the past few months, there have been a handful of indicators suggesting that Android will soon offer native theming support. Android Oreo allows users to customize their phones with the Substratum Theme Engine with the use of a simple desktop app, the Pixel 2 introduced white and dark themes that change based on the wallpaper you have set, and now it looks like Android will soon get a native dark mode.

Looking at exactly the same thing every time you fire up your PlayStation 4 can become quite tedious.

This is the essential Christmas theme for Android

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Themes are made to be changed, swapped, and remade, but every winter, I find myself coming back to the same trusted theme. I’ve refined this theme for three years now, and this year it seems just about perfect. It’s a little bit Disney, a little bit winter wonderland, a little bit Christmas cheer, and it makes me smile. It’s like breaking out your favorite ornaments to put on the  [Read More…]
