Twelve days and counting until the big (and small) screen release of the Veronica Mars movie!!

First Bloom of Spring

This beautiful Azalea flower appeared in our front hedge this week.

I love this time of year.  Flowers and buds of greenery start peeking out wherever you look.  And for my readers up north, hopefully this photograph will help you feel a bit of Spring!

Photography notes:  Taken with my Nexus 4, stock AOSP camera, cropped using Android 4.4.2’s Gallery app.

Blurred Wallpapers for Mobile Devices

I love patterns, but I really hate using them for wallpapers on my phones and tablets.
Because they end up looking so dang BUSY!

The Blur Wallpaper Series by

So… to resolve the issue I took a few of my favorite patterns and blurred them up. Now they’re a perfect backdrop for my cell phone home screens!

To download, click on the image you like above, then right click and choose “Save As”. Download the image to your computer, cell phone, or tablet – and you’re done!

One quick sidenote: Since I made these for xxhdpi (aka super extra high resolution screens) they should work fine for Androids, iPhones, Windows mobiles, Blackberries, etc.

Here’s to beautiful wallies,

Excessive Text – An Android Home Screen

My new Android home screen for my Nexus 4…
Excessive Text Android home screen layout by Bionic Style
Based on my love of purple, bold typography, and minimalistic home screen layouts.

To create the screens I used UCCW for the time, date, and weather widgets. The weather widget is my creation – I call it G33K Weather. I’ll have a dedicated article up about it soon!
Launcher is Apex Pro; the heart and airplane are folders for my favorite apps and social apps, respectively. Calender widget is Event Flow available for free on the Play Store.

Questions, constructive comments, etc – please post in the comments below!

Happy Androids,

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!

Just wanted to drop a quick note, and a simple graphic I made using PhotoEditor on Android…  The result?

Enjoy the day.  Eat some yummy sweets!

Hugs and candy hearts,
