Google Camera HDR+ mod can now use LG wide-angle cameras

Camera app mods are the new fad in Android after launchers and ROMs. With Google making near-exclusive features available only for its own phones, the desire and demand for ports for other phones have only become greater.

Now another "spin" has made it out of the woodwork, with a new Google Camera HDR+ that supports LG's type of dual cameras, particular the wide-angle ones.

Huawei Mate 10 call recording is easy but needs root

For one reason or another, there may be a time when you will need to record phone calls on your phone. Never mind the legal considerations, the technical hurdles might be harder to overcome. Not all phones expose that functionality even if, in theory, the device is more than capable of handling it. Fortunately on Android, you do have a choice and a way to enable call recording, like for the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. The catch is that getting there is actually the hard part.

OnePlus Camera M mod improves OnePlus 5/5T photography

There seems to be a new pattern among some of the newer and smaller players in the smartphone market. Launch a phone with “decent”, sometimes even dismal camera performance and then promise a firmware update that fixes it later. That fix does come, eventually, but sometimes the results are less than satisfying. Fortunately there are some rather devoted app developers, like XDA Senior Member txx1219, who develop some mods, like this OnePlus Camera M, that takes the disappointing stock OEM camera app and magically transforms it into something good.

Raspberry Pi Zero WH adds pre-soldered 40-pin GPIO header

How much can you cram into a 2.6 in x 1.2 in circuit board? You’d presume not much, but the Raspberry Foundation is trying to prove you wrong. First, it added built-in Wi-Fi to its teeny Raspberry Pi Zero and called it the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

Newer Super Mario Bros. DS adds 80 new levels you can play on PCs

One of the problems with the older generation of games, especially those less powerful handhelds, is that most of them are a one-time thing. Few have any replay value beyond looking for items or areas you may have previously missed. And even rarer are expansions and DLCs. Fortunately, the gaming community is not lacking in hackers and modders who are more than happy to extend the fun. Like this new Newer Super Mario Bros. DS that adds content to an older portable title.

EdsJunk has been making and offering mods of nearly every Xbox and PlayStation generation, turning them into portable versions of themselves. Depending on your definition of "portable".

iPhone X clear back mod will make you think twice

The switch, or return, to having glass rather than metal or plastic on the back of phones has a few advantages. Those include wireless charging, some rather fascinating designs, and the ability to have a clear back cover. The latter seems to have become a niche fad among enthusiasts, one that has inspired many to risk breaking their phones in the process. Naturally, the $1,000 iPhone X is no exception, and EverythingApplePro embarked on the journey so that you won’t have to. And after seeing this, you really might not want to.

In an ideal world, gamers would love to have their non-handheld games with them anywhere and everywhere. That is why consoles like the Nintendo Switch and mods like the XBOOK and XSTATION are such a hit. But what if you’re more of the old school, button-smashing, stick flicking type of gamer? Surely you can’t cram an arcade cabinet for two into a portable form, right? Wrong! At least not if you ask craft shop Love Hulten, who has just made the Cary42 for that exact purpose.

XDA One Handed Mode makes large Android phones more usable

Gone are the days when you can comfortably fit and use your smartphone in one hand.

Galaxy Note 8 Zero Camera Mod enables QHD 60fps, HDR recording

If those power user features are important to you, then you might want to do the work of rooting your smartphone to install this Zero Camera Mod to get those and more.
