Hex Installer - #bodhisattva_ OneUI

Android Police coverage: Hex Installer enables Substratum-like theming for Samsung Galaxy phones

Hex Installer is a theming app for Samsung devices that taps into OneUI. The thing about OneUI is that you can only officially theme it through downloadable themes. If you want to customize only a few colors, there really isn't an option available. That is until now. Hex Installer makes it easy to edit the colors of your themes for both Samsung's UI and any supporting app. This means you can change the theme in over 60 different apps to better suit your personal tastes, and best of all, no root is required.

Post-it®

Android Police coverage: Post-it releases Android app to scan and organize sticky notes, only five years after iOS

If you've ever wanted the simplicity of a Post-it note on your phone, I have some good news. An official Post-it note app is now available on the Google Play Store, and you can use it to take all manner of colored notes, to then store them on a digital whiteboard for later use. It's a simple note app that offers precisely what you would expect of an official Post-it app, and it's entirely free to use.

Android Police coverage: AirDroid launches new screen mirroring app for remote tech support

AirDroid Remote Support comes from SAND Studio, and it ties into the company's AirMirror service so that users can easily remote into other mobile devices directly from an Android phone. Simply install this app on the device you would like to remote into, and then install AirMirror on the device you would like to control remote access from. Just keep in mind that after the 24-hour test period, you'll have to subscribe to the AirMirror service to retain access.

Night Vision / ToF Viewer

Night Vision / ToF Viewer can render ToF sensor data using the Camera2 API. What you get is an app that offers a pseudo night vision feature, if you're into that sort of thing. Just keep in mind that not every Android device that contains a ToF sensor and Camera2 API supports the app, so your mileage may vary.
