Night Mode Enabler is a simple app that brings back Night Mode and its tile to Android Nougat

The saga of Night Mode on Android is a bit of a dramatic story that started with a sneak peek in Android M, disappeared, returned again in N dev previews, only for our excitement to be short lived as we learned that it might not make it to the final release. And make it, it didn't. With the latest dev previews and Nougat's official release, the signs of Night Mode started disappearing one by one.

But there's hope after all. It seems that Night Mode is still hidden in the System UI Tuner, and all you need is an adb command to unleash it.

[Deal Alert] Up to 66% off many NVIDIA SHIELD titles like MGR: Revengeance and the new Q*Bert Rebooted

Back when I was a student, a long long time ago, "back to school" was end of September or even beginning of October. But summer school vacations here in Lebanon seem to be following the same pattern as the US recently: they're getting shorter and thus school is starting sooner.

I'm not sure why you'd celebrate "back to school" with game discounts though — isn't that counter-productive? Or maybe kids are going to be so taken by their studies that it'd be nice to give them a break on the cheap, especially when playing in the sun becomes less feasible as fall hits.

MIUI 8 Global stable ROM now available for supported devices

MIUI splits opinions among Android users - some say it's great, a welcome refinement of the platform, and some say it's a bit too close for comfort aesthetically to Apple's iOS. Whichever way you see it, you should know that MIUI 8 is now out, with the Global stable ROM available for download over on the MIUI forums for supported devices, which are listed below. The 8th version of the Chinese OS was announced back in May with the Mi Max, which David said was gigantic in his hands-on first impressions.

MIUI 8 seems like an evolution of the Android-based operating system, with new features such as 'scrolling screenshots' and an all-new gallery app.

RIP: The Nexus 5 isn't getting Android 7.0 Nougat, let's say our goodbyes

While the Nexus 5 will likely live to see the chewy center of Nougat via community-built custom ROMs, it's now official that the phone so many of us loved will never get a Google-sanctioned Android 7.0 release. Let us mourn.

The Nexus 5 launched in late 2013 - you can go back and read our review, in which Liam, Ryan, and I took to a single post to combine our thoughts on the device. They were largely positive, too: the Nexus 5 was easily the most well-received Nexus phone yet when it was released, with both consumers and reviewers alike praising its unique design, excellent performance, and compelling price.

CyanogenMod 13 hacked to work on Lumia 520 and 525

Microsoft's home-built (or home-bought) smartphone lineup may not be long for this world, but it looks like the development community isn't giving up on it. The Nokia Lumia 520 is an entry-level Windows Phone 8 device, announced back in 2013, and later succeeded by the Lumia 525 and 530.

A few days ago, XDA developer banmeifyouwant posted a video of his in-progress CyanogenMod 13 port to the Lumia 525. The video shows CM13, based on Android 6.0, booting on the device as well as opening and closing apps.

The developer only demonstrated the 525 booting, but he is currently working on kernel tweaks to allow the 520 to boot as well.

Google Photos v1.26 clarifies plans for video stabilization and teases a faster way to share [APK Teardown]

The recent theme for Google's app updates has been that they're not really packed with big new features. This isn't unusual, just part of the typical ebb and flow as development teams prepare for bigger things. The previous update for Google Photos wasn't loaded with many new features and the new one appears to have none at all. However, a teardown of v1.26 shows that there's still some work going on under the hood for the previously revealed video stabilization feature and hints at a new way to share photos with people that will be even faster than what we already have.

T-Mobile just announced a surprise Uncarrier program that will do away with all its current plans. Instead, there's only one plan that T-Mobile is calling T-Mobile One.
