The popular custom ROM is being rebuilt from scratch on a KitKat base, announced the Paranoid Android team. The focus of the project, moving forward, will be to deliver a stock-like appearance with smooth integration of high-quality added features.


Sweet Google updates

On Wednesday, Google began rolling out updates to several of its apps, including Chrome Beta, Play Games, and Play Music. But the sweetest update is probably the introduction of high-quality voices to the Text-to-Speech engine – your phone can now talk to you in the finest British accent.

It may not have the most inspired name out there, but early signs are promising for Samsung’s brand new service Milk Music. We just hope Milk won’t stay exclusive to US Galaxy users for too long.
