The great novelty is a feature called App Themer, which, as its name indicates, has a great influence on the applications that are running on the terminal in which CyanogenMod 12 is running. With it, it is possible to indicate to the operating system which “theme” you want to see when a specific development is running. For example, the aspect used will change if you are sending a message with WhatsApp or the Internet browser (if desired).
Even, according to Cyanogen herself, it will be possible to define the type of “theme” that is seen depending on the colors that an application has. This is really useful since, for example, when a mail management application is running -Gmail, without going any further- it uses a lots of white And therefore, the background that is used is wanted to be very different from if you are listening to music with a player.
Integrated in CyanogenMod 12
Well yes, this new option will be within the theme menu itself CyanogenMod 12, so there will be no loss when using it and, obviously, making it work from this section. In other words, it is not an additional tool that can be installed or not.
In addition, the use has been indicated to be the most intuitive: once the development is executed, click on the place where you want to start with the modification and using a floating brush with which it is done in “work” that is seen in real time. This allows, therefore, to change a certain aspect of the applications themselves, which is an important step.
Obviously, with App Themer you can use all kinds of themes compatible with CyanogenMod 12, even those that are paid in the corresponding store (in which the Google account profile is used). Regarding availability, it will reach all users who update to the new version of ROM and it will also be present on devices that use this company’s own operating system.
