  • When we talk about modding our smartphone and changing various features at the core of the operating system, Android is the most versatile OS. From the system boot animations to sound profiles, Android users are free to “play” with almost every aspect of their devices. Speaking of customizing the boot animation, changing them requires special root privileges and was not always at hand.


    The app made by JRummy Apps Inc. is a good example of how easy it is to download and install a custom boot animation on Android. If you still feel somewhat dissatisfied with animations that this app offers, then you are offered special features and unique options to achieve perfection. This solution comes from the developers of well-known applications such as ROM Toolbox, busybox Installer or Root Explorer and many others.

    Boot Animations offers the most complete collection of custom boot animations that can be configured in a number of ways. There are more than 300 animations available, either stock with certain mobiles or operating system versions or customized by various authors. All are offered at the highest quality and can be downloaded from online servers. You can also set a number of animations to be shown at random on reboot, or you can create custom animations using your own sets of .GIF images. First thing you should be aware is that the application will only work on devices with root and busybox installed.


    Each boot animation is stored on online servers. You can access them using the application. To do this, just access the Server tab, scroll through the list of available animations and select the one you want. Before downloading an animation, you can preview, add to favorites and check the details (author, size, frame rate, image size and number of images). Once an animation is downloaded, you get options to install and use, such as resizing, examining the archive contents or adding it to the randomizer for a list of animations displayed randomly. Another thing to note is that the randomizer does not work if the app is installed on the SD card. You also get the option to install animations that are stored locally and there is a very efficient search engine integrated into the app. Another useful feature of the app is its ability to allow users to manually switch boot animation feature, or disable any animation to help their devices boot faster.

    Through the in-app purchases you can enjoy some exclusive boot animations and unlock features such as:

    •  $0.99 Unlock Preview – to preview animations
    • Unlock tool to create custom boot animations from .GIF images – $0.99
    • Unlock randomizer for $1.50
    • Remove the ads for $0.99.

    All functions can be unlocked for $2.99. Boot Animations may be downloaded for free from the Store.
