Awesome apps that can change your old boring Android Interface. You have often wondered ,how you want to change your old android interface. If you are bored of your old interface,check out the new apps that can change the look,experience on your device.
1. Aviate One of the recent launching app for android,its really a primarily launcher which replaces your default Android launcher app.It gives a lot new experience in its new pattern of home screens ,folders,notification bars and drawers.Its totally different from the default UI. The Aviate has a complete different approach, it keeps changing according to your usage (as well as your location and time during a day). Suppose you are travelling,this app can suggest you the music that suits for the location, the navigation apps and even foursquare(app which can tell you where you can go out to meet friends at the moment).The interesting feature of this app is that the launcher keeps learning as your usage increases which is really interesting.As we all know ,nothing is perfect, minor bugs have been detected which are needed to be cleared by the developers.Well you won't find any serious issues like crashes or lags. Aviate is available on Google playstore. To download Aviate click on the link below. http://bit.ly/1cApGJr
2.Themer Well this one is really cool in its layout, homescreen(which are customizable).This is same as Aviate which is launcher app for the default android launcher. Themer is developed by MyColorScreen .Well this one is the one of the best app if wish to create(more specifically transform) your Android Smartphone's looks and layouts.Currently there are more than 55000 unique homescreens at themers for you to download(depends on the specification of the device).At first , you may find difficult in managing the layouts and designs as every design and layout differ from one another,but if you starts understanding it,it is the best,amazing ,cool UI you can get.
Well this app is working for all android 4.1 smartphones(not sure about working in tablets,as it still in developing for big screens).
This is the most popular and downloaded launcher app for Android.It contains vast range of customizable themes,making it so popular, perhaps the most downloaded launcher app for Android Smartphones. The appreciative feature of this app is that is that you can customize your icons,wallpaper and lock-screen with lots of themes and patterns. And other important feature is that ,you can change the launcher app to default Android app launcher easily.(It also contains Alienware theme)
GO launcher EX is available on Google playstore.

Its just like Aviate, the app learns according to your usage and keeps updated with your location and the time of the day. Well it seems it is made for screen lock app if you use Android device(more specifically smartphones).The latest and most recently used apps are placed at the top in a clean looking screen. This launcher is good ,user friendly.This app is handy in checking the updates and needed downloads.
Cover is available on Google playstore.But in some regions ,it may not.
MIUI MiHome Launcher is one of the most easy to use apps as it initially changes the looks of layout of your Android interface rather than completely replacing the design pattern.Another feature is it has its own lock screen, its own wallpaper ,icons and widgets.This app is developed by Xiaomi, a chinese smartphone and app maker.The launcher app can be used in Android devices using 2.3 and above. Many variety of customizable themes are available at Xiaomi's store.

A few months back, one of friends suggested me to start a software downloading blog and to monetize it through any pay per install affiliate network. My friend told me about his earnings which were impressing. He was earning big with his downloading blog.After getting inspiration from his earnings, I started a shareware blog and then started searching for some highest paying PPI affiliate networks. After a thorough research, I found 5 networks which satisfied me. Today I’m sharing 5 best of these pay per install programs with you which will earn big for you.
Skymonetizer is among the best PPI affiliate programs which pay the highest in market. The goodness of SkyMonetizer, it gives good rates for Indian and Pakistani traffic too while other pay per install networks keep the rates comparatively lower for the traffic generated from these two countries. If your downloading blog is receiving good traffic from India and Pakistan, SkyMonetizer must be your only choice. Minimum payout limit at SkyMonetizer is $50 and payments are made twice a month. Signup at SkyMonetizer
Once installer is the second best PPI affiliate network which I have tested and it also earns good for you. The only disadvantage of the affiliate network is its comparatively high payout limit which is $200. For small publishers, the limit may take long to reach. Learn more here, how to monetize your software downloading blog with OneInstaller.
RevenYou is yet another useful platform which is specifically developed for software and application developers. After registering at RevenYou, upload your application and then get the truncated download link for the uploaded .exe file. Now promote the link on your blog or website. You will be paid for every install and rates are good for almost all countries.
At present, the maximum file allowed to be uploaded is 50MB. If you have some bigger files, you need to contact the RevenYou support. They will upload the file to their server and will provide you with download link. Payments are made on net 30 basis.
Yet another high paying pay per install program is OptimumInstaller where you can provide your .exe files after your account is created. Once you will provide them with your .exe setup files, the OptimumInstaller staff will integrate your downloads with their downloader and will provide you with the download link for the files.

Writing paid post is perhaps the most straight forward ways to earn some revenue from blogging. The way pay post works hasn’t changed much; after reaching mutual agreement with advertisers, you write about them, they pay you. And if there is a 3rd party (middle man company) involve, they take cut. Most middle man company provides marketplace for advertisers to look for publishers, vice versa.
If you firmly believe that writing pay post is one good way to revenue from your blog, here’s a list of web services that pays you to write for them. If you have a paid post service I’ve missed out I’d like to add them to the list.
Squidoo is a publishing platform and community where you can share personal write-ups through their website. Articles on Squidoo are called ‘lenses’ or pages. Once you’ve posted a lens, ads of similar or recommended products of what’s written is placed around your lens.
The ads will consist of products which are sold via their affiliate programs with Amazon, eBay and a few others. You keep half of whatever Squidoo makes off your lens which is then payable to you via PayPal or donated to a charity of your choice.
Like Squidoo, in HubPages, you write ‘hubs’ or articles about an original and useful topic. Once you’ve posted your article, ads related to what you wrote are placed. These ads are generated from Google AdSense, HubPages Ad Program and/or affiliate programs such as Amazon and eBay products.
Once your article(s) earns the minimum amount on Google AdSense ($100) or HubPages Ad Program ($50), you can chose to cash out your earnings through PayPal.
