The LG G3 has been LG’s breakout hit of the summer. Using their knowledge from building some Nexus Devices and improving on the LG G2, the G3 is a beast right out of the box! However here at XDA, we are never completely satisfied with a stock device. While our review of the device shows off the stock features, there is always more you can do with your LG G3.


In today’s episode,  XDA Developer TV Newcomer Jared shows off the Top 5 LG G3 MODs. He talks about 5 Mods, that in no particular order that really help expand your LG G3?s capabilities. Jared talks about a lock screen mod, a camera mod, thermal mods, a split view mod, and Xposed Tweaksbox Module. So if you wanted to see what these MODs offer and get insight into how they run, check out this video!

Arnak!
Arnak is a puzzle game for Android that is currently available in the Google Play Store.

Arnak, a mighty inter-dimensional being, wants to construct an antenna to extend his power into our dimension. Arnak’s antenna, consisting of pyramids of multicolored blocks, is not for the good of mankind. Set among the backdrop of the pyramids of ancient Egypt, your task is to destroy Arnak’s pyramid by matching the sides of multicolored blocks. You have limited time and resources to rotate each block. Once all sides of a block match its neighbors’, the block will be sent back to Arnak’s dimension. Don't let Arnak build his pyramid!

Rotate or Die!

For some of us, summer vacation is already over. For those getting ready to school, work, or other “boring” places, it’s a good time to start thinking your return. Those of you who take things seriously, should use a calendar, and Android devices are perfectly capable of replacing your standard scheduler.


A good calendar should meet a few requirements. It should be functional, fast, and good looking. XDA Forum Member lmchanh developed an application that perfectly fits the criteria mentioned above. Month Calendar is a collection of beautiful widgets. It’s fast, modern looking and supports over 70 various themes changing the look and feel of the app. With Month calendar you will know about upcoming birthdays of your friends and family. If you are into astrology, you can learn more about the lunar calendar. The fun thing is that application’s icon is changed accordingly to the current month.


The basic version of the calendar offers a few different themes available for free. You can change the look of the app and remove ads by getting one of available theme packs.


Month Calendar is definitely one of the best looking widgets out there. You can get it from the Month calendar application thread. If you are keen to find a good replacement for your stock calendar, go there and give it a try.

Social network applications and services have developed into major parts of our lives. It’s hard to imagine a world without Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or VK. We use them to contact our friends, inform others about our hobbies, or simply read the news from selected RSS feeds every day.


When you are browsing the Web, you can find many places that interact strongly with social media. XDA is one such place. This type of integration can also be added to Android projects, and this can now be done rather easily with a library created by XDA Forum Member gorbino.


With this library, users will be able to perform the most common actions like share photos, link, add or remove your friends. If you are planning to make your project social network friendly, you should consider adding ASNE to your application. You just need to add the module, build SocialNetworkManager, and configure your AndroidManifest. ASNE contains common interfaces for most popular social networks, but you can easily make module for another.


ASNE contains modules for the following social networks:



  • Twitter

  • LinkedIn

  • Facebook

  • Google Plus

  • Vkontakte

  • Odnoklassniki


If you are an app developer and want to put some more focus on social networking, feel free to visit the ASNE – library for simple social networks integration thread to learn more.

Give Your Android Wear Device a Lock Screen with Lockable
www.xda-developers.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/xda-150x150.png" height="150" width="150" style="float: left; margin: 0 15px 15px 0;" />

Without a doubt, Android Wear is one of the most frequently talked about topics of the last few weeks. The upcoming Moto 360 and other circular smartwatches will be released next week during the IFA in Berlin. These devices have already gathered a following of eager owners and developers working on applications and other goods for this wearable ecosystem.


Nearly every device with Android on board, no matter if it’s a smartphone or a tablet, allows its users to use some kind of lock screen protection. Among the most popular methods, you can find a swipe gesture, a PIN code, face unlock, password unlock, and of course the Android hallmark lock screen pattern. However, this isn’t the case on Android Wear by default. Now, these methods have been successfully ported over to Android Wear by XDA Senior Member Mohammad_Adib. This application can be used to protect your device from other people trying to access it. Lockable can also lock your device when it’s dimmed and much more. It’s a great way to enhance the Android Wear experience in a simple manner.


The free version of the app allows you to use swipe gestures, while other unlock methods can be unlocked with an in-app purchase. We don’t promote paid applications, but a free version offers quite a lot.


If you are an Android Wear device owner or you are planning to get one of these brand new smartwatches, protect them with Lockable. You can get it by visiting the application thread.


[Big thanks to our XDA TV Producer TK for the tip!]

Cow Cat Jump
In Cow Cat Jump the protagonist is Oscar, a loveable cat whose fur resembles the Holstein cow pattern (that's where the name comes from too). His friends are sick and the only way to cure them is by finding a flower with holistic properties, the only problem being that it's only found around a dangerous volcano. Oscar has to dodge invincible enemies (such as dogs and flying fireballs) but it can destroy others by jumping on them.
Here's an overview of what this game offers:
- Simple gameplay, tilt the device left/right to move Oscar and swipe up/down to jump or open surprise boxes
- 20 different levels that vary in difficulty, from ones that only take 30 seconds to complex ones that will kill your cat very fast
- Integration with Google Play Services allows saving your scores online and comparing them with your friends
- Lovely graphics with a hint of retro for those that like Super Mario type of games

"Cow Cat Jump" is available for free on Google Play and you can see it in action here: http://youtu.be/qdLX_HO5k20
Quick Control Panel Updated, Adds Notification Support
www.xda-developers.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Screenshot_2014-04-17-19-56-20-150x150.png" height="150" width="150" style="float: left; margin: 0 15px 15px 0;" />

As some of you may remember, earlier this year we spoke about Quick Control Panel by XDA Senior Member Dr.Alexander_Breen. For those who don’t recall, Quick Control Panel is a resourceful app that brings the functionality and usability of the iOS Control Center to Android devices. Quick Control Panel brings the iOS features like settings toggles and music along with an Android flavor to it in the form of a Holo design, heavy customization options, more toggling options as well as Google’s ubiquitous card-centric interface.


In the time since its initial release, Dr.Alexander_Breen has released an important update to Quick Control Panel that adds a major feature to its already strong suite of them: notifications. The latest iteration of Quick Control Panel allows you to view and manage your notifications right from the control shade, and coupled with the system-wide availability and placement of the shade, this update packs quite a punch.


Quick Control Panel is available in paid and lite version, but the developer has generously provided the full version for free to all XDA Members. Head over the Quick Control Panel thread to get started and consider buying the app to help out the developer.
