6 Android Tweaks For Better Experience[No Root Required]

Its amazing to know how much Android can be customized without root but in order to create full scale modifications you will have to root the device.However rooting the device has its own dangers and can harm the device.

So here are the 6 Android Tweaks that will make your experience better:

1)Status:

Status is a status bar replacement that draws an overlay on top of thr system generated status bar.This means that the actual status bar is only hidden under the replacement; touch gestures are not overridden, and the standard notification panel is still shown.

2)Parallel Space:

Parallel Space allows you to run multiple accounts of same app simultaneously meaning multiple accounts of Whatsapp/Facebook/Instagram or any other app in one phone .

Parallel Space is based on multiDroid, the first application virtualization engine on Android.

3)MacroDroid:

MacroDroid is the easiest way to automate your daily tasks on your Android smartphone or tablet. Via the smart user interface it offers a simple solution to make automated tasks on your device in just a few taps.

A few examples of how it can help you to get automated:

  • Switch on WiFi when you are near your house.
  • Reduce battery drain (like dimming your screen and switching Wifi off)
  • Saving on roaming costs (automatically switch off your Data)
  • Remind you to do certain tasks using timers and stopwatches.

4)AZ Screen Recorder:

AZ Screen Recorder is the best app to record the screen of your Lollipop. It does NOT require root access, no time limit, no watermark, ad free and very easy to use with one action to start and stop recording.

It lets you record your screen to HD and Full HD videos and it is the only screencast app on Android that can be paused and resumed while recording.

You can also record audio from the mic and it is automatically muxed into the screencast videos. That makes it very convenient to create tutorial, promotional video, comment about your game and gameplay or record video chat.

5)MUVIZ:

Muviz is a first of its kind app that displays a Music Visualizer on your Phone’s Navigation Bar or Status Bar while you are listening to your favourite music from your favourite apps.

Muviz not only enhances your music play, it also elevates your video experience by showing visualizer over your favourite video apps like Youtube.

6)Energy Bar:

EnergyBar lets users customize the way their phone displays battery levels. The app lets you replace the plain generic bar at the top of your phone with something more eye-catching.

Got a full charge? The line will cover the whole width of your screen.
Battery depleting? So will the length of Energy Bar.

Vysor is a chrome extension which lets you control your android from PC. So far all the tools which we have seen requires the phone to be rooted, but Vysor will work just by enabling developer mode on the phone. To enable developement mode, go to Settings -> About phone and press seven times on build version. After this you will see a new option under settings – Developer Options . Select that option and enable USB debugging.

Having done this, you can connect your phone to computer and Vysor will allow you to control it. Vysor is still in beta mode so it might not work perfectly but still it’s a cool utility.
