Team Win Recovery Project Gets The Material Design Treatment Thanks To XDA Developer's Downloadable Theme

The Team Win Recovery Project is a great custom recovery, but it isn't pretty. Back in the Ice Cream Sandwich days, it kind of blended in. Nowadays, it's just that outdated screen you largely don't care about while you flash .zips.

But what if TWRP could look just as sleek as the rest of Android 5.0? Thanks to the work of XDA developer z31s1g, it can get close. He has released a Materialized TWRP theme that changes the appearance of every screen, including when you're wiping partitions or running scripts. It comes in either a light or dark variant, and you can choose any of 15 colors.

An (Official) Introduction To APK Mirror

Over the past month or two, you may have noticed a change in our "APK Download" posts.

In fact we have switched mirroring services several times because of intrusive advertising or other issues our readers faced.

Google Cloud Print Gets Its Own Material Makeover [APK Download]

Google Cloud Print has recently received a material redesign of its own. You would be forgiven for thinking that the printing service wasn't its own app, given how it's tucked away with your device's other settings. But when you do go to "add a printer," you are, in fact, kicked out to a different app.

It just doesn't look like it.

What's New

Cloud Print has gone Material. Everything's bright white, the sidebar slides out on top of the action bar, and the new color palette matches the settings menu in Android 5.0.

Google Inbox 1.1 Tweaks The Material Design Layout, Especially On Lollipop [APK Download]

But as with the recent updates to Newsstand and other apps, Google is getting a little more consistent with its Material Design standard.
