An Android KitKat Easter Egg BootAnimation by me

I was bored and decided to make a KitKat Easter Egg Bootanimation for my phone so that I can flaunt KitKat while booting the device too. :D
I pretty much liked the outcome so thought of sharing it with all of you.

The size of the zip is big for a bootanimation (32mb) because all the images used are of full 1280x720 resolution.

Download it from my Dev Host account - Click Here

Can be used on the Nexus One, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and all other rooted Android phones having the resolution around 720p.

Installation:
To install, simply copy the zip file to system/media and give the permissions as rw-r-r (ie 644)

-----

I had posted this boot animation on XDA too, and the reviews I got over there where wonderful. I hope you like it too. Do try it out! :)

Here is a video of how the BootAnimation looks like:


The video doesn't look too good as it's just for 5 seconds. But believe me it looks fantastic as the bootanimation on the phone because I have looped it.

Encrypter Decrypter - My second Android app

Encrypter Decrypter is my second Android app. Again, this is a simple app but does what it needs to do perfectly.

This app can convert your text in a reasonably secure text.

Compatibility: Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and above

------------------------------------------------

Features:

- Encrypt and the encrypted text is directly copied to your clipboard

- You can directly share the encrypted text too using Email, Facebook, WhatsApp, SMS, etc.

- For large text files, the files can be opened using a file manager and the encrypted text can also be saved to text files (This is the reason why the read and write permissions are required by the app)

- The new Tabbed UI (swipe-able tabs)

Note: Saved files are saved in /sdcard/EncryptorDecryptor/Encrypted_Texts
------------------------------------------------

Please check it out. I hope you like it.

ArVoSurAr Calculator (Area Volume SurfaceArea) - My first Android App

So it's been a long time since I last wrote anything on this blog. I was starting to think that I have lost interest in blogs and articles. But well, I had to get back here to share some of my own stuff. So here I am. :)

Vacations are going on and I have nothing to do. So instead of getting bored, I thought of having a shot at Android programming. Android programming is pretty much Java, and as I know basics of Java very well I knew that starting off with Android won't be difficult either.

This post is basically for my first Android app. Not essentially the first, as the first app in any language is generally the 'Hello World' app! ;)

This app is called ArVoSurAr Calculator. I know the name sounds weird. ArVoSurAr stands for Area, Volume and Surface Area.

What this app basically does is calculate the three above mentioned values of various shapes as per the input of the user. A pretty simple app to make and simpler to try it out on your phone.

So please do download it and run it. Don't expect something fancy out of the app, it's a basic program but performs the given task very well.

I was planning to upload in on the Play Store but Google charges $25 one-time charge to publish apps. I'm in no mood to spend that.

So I have uploaded the app on the GetJar Store and even on Dev-Host. You can download it from either of the two places.

The application has few basic shapes to calculate values for. I may think of expanding it, but my first priority to learn new things rather than just expanding shapes which will be good for this app but not good for my knowledge.

Anyways, here are a few screenshots of the app. The GetJar and Dev-Host links to download the app are available below the screenshots.
