The Paranoid Android team just released Beta 3 of the KitKat-based Paranoid Android 4, bringing customizable dual tiles in the quick settings dropdown, “on-the-spot” preferences dialogs, improvements to the immersive mode, and other tweaks and bug fixes.
In this edition of the Friday Debate, we discuss one of the core strengths of Android - the ability to customize the appearance of the operating system in just about any way you like. From widgets and live wallpapers, to icon packs, and custom launchers, it's easy to give your Android device a full makeover. And even if you prefer the appearance of stock Android or an OEM layout, you can still add a few touches to make it truly your own.
