Data privacy and online censoring are some of the most hotly debated topics at the moment. Recently the US Congress had interrogated the heads of Google (CEO: Sundar Pichai), Facebook ( Founder and CEO: Mark Zuckerberg) and Twitter (Founder and CEO: Jack Dorsey) regarding censoring non liberal political views aired on their platforms.

In this post, I will be primarily talking about the app named One ui icon pack designed and developed by iEvil Dev. This icon pack is aimed at providing the feel of One ui for non-Samsung android devices. The icons in the pack are inspired by the flat icon design and consists of colourful squares with rounded corners. This icon pack is compatible with a number of launchers whether it be Nova launcher, Atom launcher, Apex launcher, Poco launcher etc. The app makers have however mentioned that this icon pack will not work with Pixel launcher, Google Now launcher or any other launcher that comes with the phone. However, I have been able to successfully use this icon pack in my Oneplus7Pro along with the stock Oxygen Os.
Google Playstore especially is filled with wallpaper apps that offers wallpapers in various categories whether it be abstract, scenery, buildings, superheroes, colours, patterns and many other categories. Apps like Starless, Walli, WallP, Abstruct, Backdrops etc are examples. Ukiyo E on the other hand is a wallpaper app that offers wallpapers in only one category and that category is the japanese woodblock printing from 17th to 19th centuries.
In contrast to iPhones, android users have the option of enjoying the whole display of their beautiful smartphones without being distracted by app icons. This is exactly the reason why Google play store is especially filled a number of wallpaper apps some of the most prominent of which are Starless, WallP, Walli, Resplash and Backdrops. Among all of these apps, Backdrops deserve special mention due to its material design and also due to the wide variety of wallpapers present in the app and that too of various categories like Abstract, Amoled, Be Together, Earth, Flags, Food, Geometric, Material, Minimal, Pairs, Pattern, Photography and many others.
Android as an operating system has no dearth of quality music players. Currently they range from simple and minimalist music players such as ‘Musicolet’ to highly customizable and complex music players such as Jetaudio HD music player plus. There are also dedicated music players from corporate giants such as Sony and Sennheiser which are primarily intended for controlling their bluetooth headphones. In addition to all of these, there are myriad music streaming services such as Amazon music, Spotify, Gaana, JioSaavn etc. Among all these diversity of apps catering to the smartphone music enthusiast, Poweramp stands out by virtue of the great customizability it offers, its beautiful interface, solid equalizer and most importantly its long history as a reliable music player.
As some one who owns both an android flagship (Oneplus7Pro) as well as an ipad Pro 2017, I will try my best to be fair in my analysis. Even in 2020, despite all the improvements Android had made over the years, iPhones still are ahead in one key aspect. That aspect is software support. IfContinue reading “Android vs Apple: The Perennial Debate”
Yesterday, I published an article regarding the app ‘wavelet’ that provides the android user with advanced sound customization across multiple apps like Spotify, Gaana and many others. However, before the advent of music streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon Music, Gaana and Tidal people chiefly stored music in the internal memory of their android smartphoneContinue reading “Jetaudio HD Music Player Plus”
Audio quality in android smartphones in general have always been an area of neglect. Only few manufacturers have paid serious attention to equip their smartphones with quality speakers and dacs before 2018 (LG and htc to name a few). Despite their diligence, the sales of smartphones from these companies dwindled year after year. Whether itContinue reading “Wavelet- Advanced smartphone audio tuner for those who don’t want to root their devices”
