Double Tap to Wake feature brought back to unrooted Nexus 6

A few weeks back, we talked about an app that brought back the “double tap to wake” feature to the Google Nexus 6 phone, a feature that was planned to be active on the phone but was nixed by Motorola and Google at the last minute.

Enter XDA member “_qwerp” who now presents an alternate solution for bringing back the feature to non-rooted Nexus 6 units.

Major Fleksy update brings virtual keyboard extensions to your phone

Virtual keyboard apps have become an in thing for those dissatisfied with their device's native typing pad.

Sony adds AOSP support to all 2014 Qualcomm-based Xperia units

Sony is one of those manufacturers who seem to have found a groove in balancing their support for after-market software for their devices and continuing to encourage those who are part of the community who tweak the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) for their Sony devices. Because of this commitment, Sony has even now made AOSP support official for all Qualcomm-based Xperia devices released in 2014. Pretty nifty.
