Everything the Samsung Themes engine still gets wrong on the Galaxy S9

Samsung Themes is the best of the bunch for Android system theming — but it still needs plenty of work.

Theming days are over.

Shortly after the public launch of Android 8.0 Oreo, it was discovered that there was built-in support for system-wide theming. With the help of the Andromeda desktop client, you could (fairly) easily start changing the look of your notification panel, apps, settings, and much more with a variety of Substratum themes.

Put some Canadian pride on your home screen with these Canada Day themes!

“Canada… big, wide, and very, very cold!” “WHAT?!”

That’s the beginning of the Canada movie at Epcot, and that’s the first thing that pops into my head whenever I think of our northern neighbors. Safe to say, I am not an expert on the country. Until I started to work for Android Central, my Canadian experiences consisted of Epcot and Hetalia. That said, there’s a lot to be envious of looking at Canada. You’ve got good healthcare,  [Read More…]
