Ubuntu

Files and instructions available to run both operating systems on your Nexus 4

If you’re looking to have a little bit of Ubuntu fun on your Nexus 4 during the holiday break, Canonical has something that should interest you. They have released a method to flash your phone so that it can boot into Ubuntu from Android, and boot back to “normal” using what looks and acts like normal applications to the end user.

Looking through the instructions, you’ll need to be running Ubuntu on your home computer and know your way around the command line. It’s all scripted so there is little room for error, and the only path back is a full wipe and reflash of the factory images. You’ll also need to flash an old radio if you want to make phone calls on the Ubuntu side, using a Jelly Bean factory image.

While this isn’t for everybody — and is clearly marked as a developer preview — it is a good way to have a look at how Ubuntu is progressing and still be able to revert back to something more familiar for those times when you need it.

10 fun apps for hacking your phone

10 fun apps for hacking your phone
Same old default screen? Pimp Your Screen lets you, er, pimp your screen

Sure, you can keep your phone with the same wallpaper, icons, home screens and settings that it had when you first bought it – but where’s the fun in that?

A plethora of apps are available to enable you to get under the hood of your device and start making tweaks, and here we’ve collected ten of our favourites, from modding the notification lights and automating tasks, to revamping your home screen and managing files.

Our round-up of tools is slightly weighted towards Android because it’s a more ‘hackable’ platform and there are more tools available for changing different parts of the OS.

If you’re happy rooting your Android phone or jailbreaking your iPhone, then there are plenty of other apps and hacks you can consider, but we’ve restricted ourselves to tweaks and customisations that are possible without voiding your warranty. As ever, share your own recommendations in the comments.

1. Tasker

10 apps for hacking your phone
Create customised menus and pop-ups then tailor them to your specific needs

Tasker lets you set up specific conditions (such as a time of day or a particular GPS location) and associate them with a related action (turning off Wi-Fi or muting your phone’s sounds, for example).

The app recently received an interface overhaul to bring it into line with the look of Android 4.0+, and you can also use it to create customised menus and pop-ups. It’s not the easiest app to get to grips with, but it enables you to automate a whole host of functions on your Android device.

2. Launch Center Pro

10 apps for hacking your phone
Launch Center Pro lets you create shortcuts to options in other apps

Unless you’re going to jailbreak your iPhone, you’re somewhat limited in terms of the tweaks you can make to the interface and iOS settings. Launch Center Pro is one of the apps that can make a real difference, enabling you to create ‘quick links’ (like desktop shortcuts) to other actions within apps.

You can create a link to a specific options within any supported app: this could be a text message to a specific friend, the ‘take a photo’ screen in Instagram, or a particular Twitter profile in Tweetbot, for example.

3. Advanced Task Killer

10 apps for hacking your phone
Automatically kill unwanted apps to free up space for the tools you actually want

Android tries to do its best when managing your multi-tasking apps, but if you want to take charge yourself then enlist the help of Advanced Task Killer.

You can stop dozens of tasks with one calculated tap, add specific apps to an ignore list, automatically kill apps at certain intervals and free up memory for the tools you do want to use (some technical know-how is useful if you want to avoid closing system apps that you should keep running). Buy the £3.19 Pro version to remove the ads

4. Nova Launcher

10 apps for hacking your phone
Want to customise every pixel of your OS’s interface? You can now

If you’re running Android 4.0+ Ice Cream Sandwich on your phone, then you can take advantage of Nova Launcher, a tool that’s able to customise almost every pixel of the mobile OS’s interface. Change colours, icons, dock behaviour, widgets and more as you like.

Upgrade to the £2.60 Prime version to get extra goodies such as unread counts and gesture control. It’s one of the most comprehensive launcher tools on the market for Android, and you can back up and restore your customisations at any time should you need to.

5. Pimp Your Screen

10 apps for hacking your phone
Create a personalised look for your iPhone then share it across your devices

Combine wallpapers, app shelves, icon templates and lock screens to create a look for your iPhone that is truly unique. Pimp Your Screen has an impressive number of templates to pick from, and you can combine resources from within the app with your own artwork to tailor your iOS device’s home screens to suit.

There’s a built-in preview feature so you can see the results of your customisations without exiting the app, and you can use the same settings across all of your iDevices if you wish to.

6. Light Flow

10 apps for hacking your phone
With Light Flow you can choose notification colours for specific apps and events

Available as both a free and paid-for app for Android, Light Flow lets you take control over your notifications and specifically the notification lights on your device. Install the free Lite version first, to check compatibility with your phone – Light Flow requires root access on some models but not others.

Once you’re up and running, you can use the app to choose notification colours for certain apps and events, and even cycle through a series of colours if required. Vibration alerts and a special sleep mode can also be controlled by Light Flow.

7. App Icons

10 apps for hacking your phone
Build your own icons for your apps and website links

Get hold of App Icons for your iDevice and you can switch between customised themes of icons, as well as build your own for specific apps or links to websites.

You’ll need to have the apps in question installed, and only certain apps are covered by the templates provided, but you can radically transform the look of your iOS device with just a few steps. If you don’t want to have to shell out any cash straight away, you can pick up a free version of the app that contains ads.

8. Dropbox

10 apps for hacking your phone
Dropbox does more than you might think with its intuitive filing options

Dropbox works across computers, mobiles and tablets and has become much more than a file-syncing and back-up tool. So how does it help you hack your phone?

It creates an intuitive, simple file system for your device, it enables you to easily install apps from outside of the official stores, it gives you more options when sharing and attaching files in other apps, and more besides. Whether you want to automatically back up your Photo Stream on iOS or install a beta app on Android, Dropbox can lend a hand.

9. Zedge

10 apps for hacking your phone
Wallpapers, ringtones, themes – Zedge has got them all for the bargain price of ‘free’

Zedge comes packed with wallpapers, themes and ringtones you can apply on your Android or iOS device – it’s all free to download and use, and new content is added on a regular basis.

On iOS you’ll find yourself limited to wallpapers for your home screen and lock screen, but the Android version extends this to cover audio features too, including notification sounds and other types of alert as well as calls and text messages. You can set wallpapers to automatically change based on a preset schedule too, if you wish.

10. Apex Launcher

10 apps for hacking your phone
Hide apps, add animations and take control over your theme engine

Another of the many app launchers available for Android, Apex Launcher is one of the most popular and well-respected in this particular bracket.

As well as a customisable grid size across nine separate home screens, you can hide apps and on-screen elements (like the Google search bar), add animations and transition effects, and play around with the theme engine that covers icons and wallpapers.

Upgrade to the £2.59 Pro version and you can access more advanced features (including unread count notifications) and additional gestures.
