The folks at Cyanogen make a custom version of Google Android which ships on devices including the OnePlus One and Micromax Yu line of smartphones. One of the things that sets Cyanogen OS apart from Google’s Stock Android software is support for themes that can change the look and feel of your device… but sometimes you’ll find an app that doesn’t look right with a specific third-party theme.
So Cyanogen has built a new tool that lets you change themes on a per-app basis.
This lets you set a default theme that will be displayed most of the time, but the theme will change when you launch specific apps. For instance if your default theme causes white text to display on a white background in your email app, you can choose a different theme for your email app.
The new feature will be baked into Cyanogen OS 12 which is the first version of the operating system to be based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Cyanogen says it’ll be ready to go within a few weeks, with an over-the-air- updated rolling out to OnePlus One users by March 30th.
Cyanogen supports free and paid third-party themes. You’ll be able to buy paid themes using your Google Play Store account.
