Leaks point to flat Android app redesign coming soon

android icons redesign

Google may be preparing a redesign for Android to debut at Google I/O, and some leaked images indicate we’re in for a flatter look this time ‘round.

The leaked images come from Android Police and show some new icons for several Android apps. The new design seems to bring the icons closer to the icons of their web counterparts, though with some slight differences. If the images prove true, we’re in for redesigned looks for Play Music, Play Books, Play Movies, Play Games, Google+, Calendar, People, Chrome, YouTube, Maps, Gmail, Hangouts, Camera, and the Play Store.

Google is allegedly calling this redesign Moonshine, which is a name we haven’t heard before. Recent leaks hinting at a new look said Google was working on something called Project Hera that’s related to the new look, but not directly. It seems unlikely that Google would ship a redesign under the name Moonshine, but we don’t know if the name will change before release.

There are several possibilities for the new Android design according to recent leaks, all of which seem to fit well with the aesthetic of these leaked icons. Every leak seems to point to a flatter design for Android, which seems to be a trend in the wireless industry as a whole at the moment.

If Google is planning a redesign for Android, Google I/O seems like the logical place to announce it. Of course, there’s always the chance it will announce the redesign in a random blog post some day, like it did with Android Wear. Hopefully if/when Google does announce the redesign we won’t have to wait too long for it to rollout.

Are you ready for a new look for Android, or do you prefer the current design?

How to reduce the white point and make iOS 7.1 les bright

[#protected_0#]

[#protected_0#]

If iOS 7 was difficult or uncomfortable for you to read, then iOS 7.1 could literally be a sight for sore eyes. That’s because Apple has included new Accessibility features intended to reduce contrast and enhance usability. One of those reduces the white point a couple of steps to something closer to a very light gray. It might not sound like much but it can make a big difference, especially in dimly-lit situations. Best of all, it’s easy to enable!

How to make whites less brighter on iPhone and iPad

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 7.1 or higher.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on Accessibility.
  4. Tap on Increase Contrast under the Accessibility menu,
  5. Turn the Reduce White Point option to On.

You should notice your screen dim slightly. From now on iOS will make whites less harsh which should help with visibility, especially at night. Check out the feature and then let me know how it’s working for you in the comments. Does it make doing things like reading or playing games in darker environments easier on the eyes?

Spider Key Games releases Spellbind – A Free Point and Click Adventure

Thessaloniki, Greece – Spider Key Games today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of Spellbind 1.0, their new first person point-and-click adventure game with casual elements for iOS and Android. Spellbind places emphasis on storytelling and puzzle solving rather than impressive visuals and is easily playable by experienced and inexperienced adventure games fans.

You are Luppe, a 16 years old boy and head of the biggest gang of street urchins in the town of Riathon. You consider yourself to be the “king of thieves” and no one can doubt your stealth skills. One day Ricko, your biggest rival and head of an enemy gang, challenges you in front of all your followers. This is something you cannot defy. You have to accept the challenge and successfully complete it for the sake of your reputation. Ricko must not win!

And what is the challenge? Enter the cellar of Lord Amatar’s house and steal his oldest, thus the most expensive, bottle of wine. A challenge that sounds easy and possibly might be so, if only the owner of house had been someone else. Just knowing the name of the owner gives you goose bumps. But you are obliged to accept the challenge. Otherwise your name and your future as the “king of thieves” will be in danger.

Game Features:
* Traditional fantasy setting
* Classic adventure game feeling
* Up to 12 different riddles and many other puzzles waiting to be solved
* Simple point-and-click user interface

Spider Key Games is a small tight group of three people who aim to develop casual point-and-click adventure games with an emphasis on storytelling and puzzle solving rather than impressive visuals. Viewing our activity as a software development experiment and especially as a fun and creative experience, we intend to create independent adventure games mostly for mobile devices (but also for desktop machines), that have a story to tell and are easily playable by experienced and inexperienced adventure games fans. We ourselves are fans and therefore heavily influenced by the old school adventure games of the 80′s and 90′s, but also by the fun and lighthearted gameplay of the contemporary casual adventure games. Hence we are particularly interested in games that combine the best elements from these two worlds and this is exactly the kind of games that we will try to develop.

Galaxy S3 refresh coming soon, what’s the point of a Galaxy S4 mini?

samsung-galaxy-s4

The Galaxy S4 will be unveiled in two days, but that’s not the only new smartphone Samsung will launch this year. The company is rumored to also release a refreshed Galaxy S3 model that will offer certain improved specs, which only makes us wonder why make a Galaxy S4 mini in the first place?

The new Galaxy S3 version will reportedly feature a better display, wireless charging and a larger 2400mAh battery. The news comes from Russian mobile blogger Eldar Murtazin, famous for his previous leaks related to various mobile products, although he’s not always right in his predictions.

Of course, launching a new Galaxy S3 version, maybe an S3 Plus model, would certainly be something that Samsung would do. After all, the company is still milking the Galaxy S2 cash cow with various updated models.

But since it started making mini models based on the flagship Galaxy S version last year as well, why not rebrand this rumored Galaxy S3 refresh as a Galaxy S4 mini. Won’t the Galaxy S3 basically become a smaller, cheaper version of the Galaxy S4 as soon as the latter starts selling?

We have no idea when this Galaxy S3 refresh will be launched, or how much it will cost once it’s available, but we’ll certainly keep you updated on this particular product in case it does become real.

As for the Galaxy S4 mini, it’s not yet clear whether the device will be unveiled on Thursday or only later this year.
