OnePlus announced the newest members of its OxygenOS custom ROM team today, and a few of the names, if you have been hanging with us here at DL for more than a couple years, may sound familiar.
Positions for Android Technical Lead, UI/UX Designer, and a large chunk of the Android Development Team are now filled by members of the Paranoid Android ROM team, including its co-founder Aaron Gascoigne. As I mentioned, if you followed custom ROMs back in 2013, then you know what Paranoid Android is, as it was a very successful custom ROM which featured PIE and HALO. (more…)
A new application called Peek has hit Google Play this afternoon, one which many custom ROM users should already be fully aware of. Peek has been baked into Paranoid Android for a while, and is now its very own standalone application, costing folks $4 through Google Play. (more…)
Paranoid Android‘s new headlining feature, called Hover, has made its way into their latest beta for all to try. Hover is the replacement notification management system for the previously much-talked-about Halo, in case you were trying to keep up with ROM features these days. (more…)
Late last evening, when most folks were already snoozing, the Paranoid Android team announced Peek, an Active Display-like feature, much like you would find on the Moto X.
Since the Moto X’s release, many ROMs and applications on Google Play have attempted to recreate Motorola’s magic with the feature. One which has caught our attention for a few weeks is AcDisplay. Anyone not rooted and ROM’ing can go ahead and check that app out. (more…)
It has been a while since we have heard anything from the Paranoid Android team who introduced Halo early last year. Their floating notification system was a huge hit in the ROM community, but since then we have had a new version of Android launch. Android 4.4 Kit Kat brought some new design ideas and that means a new Halo for us. (more…)
The team of Paranoid Android launched Halo, their floating notifications solution, back in May of this year. Since then, it has become a very popular feature among the rooted community, with other developers even taking the source code to create their own standalone applications. (more…)
Some of the coolest custom Android development to happen lately has come from the folks that make Paranoid Android. Since the launch of Facebook and their cool Chat Heads feature, PA has launched their own HALO code that allows for similar floating notifications in their ROM. Up until today it has been a PA exclusive, but they have decided to go open source with the project. (more…)
Running those alpha builds of Paranoid Android with Halo? You will be happy to hear that the first beta builds are now hitting servers, bringing enhanced stability, while also ridding the ROM of the “jank” found therein. Away with the jank, I say! (more…)
