Xposed Framework For Android 5.0/ART Could Be Just Around The Corner

For those who like to mod their Android devices, the Xposed framework is a revelation. You don't need to flash a new ROM, but you get a ton of customization options and system UI tweaks with relatively limited risk. After months of waiting, Xposed may finally be coming to Lollipop.

Sony Announces The Low-End Xperia E4 With A MediaTek Processor And A Dual-SIM Variant, Leaves Out The Price

Sony's smartphones and tablets have had a nearly universal aesthetic over the last few years, focusing on hard angles and monochromatic designs. It's a good look, but the company seems to be shaking things up a bit with the low-end Xperia E4. This budget device translates Sony's industrial design into a softer, curvier plastic body. The white version is two-toned, Nexus-style, with a white housing and black screen bezel. Other touches, like the middle-mounted power button, are more familiar.

Verizon Ellipsis 8 Receives OTA Update, Just In Case You Bought One For Some Reason

We previously provided you with an in-depth, totally true* report on the origins of the Verizon Ellipsis 8, thanks to the efforts of dedicated Android Police writer Michael Crider.

Google Calendar Chrome Extension Gets Material In Version 2.0

Some of you wanted AP 2.0 to be all Material Design and FABs and circle avatars and cards. While we can't do that, here's another 2.0 update that might quell the Material need burning within you. Google Calendar's chrome extension recently got a bump to 2.0 and it's exactly what you want it to be.

If you're rejoicing from the overdose of MD in Google Calendar on your Android phone, you probably shuddered every time you opened the extension on your browser and saw those archaic design elements still being used. With v2.0, the extension should look in line with your Android experience, displaying your upcoming events and making it easy to add new ones from the pages you're browsing.
