Motorola offers hilarious April Fools' day boot screen animation in the Google Play Store
With Google asking manufacturers to add a "Powered by Android" branding to boot screen animations, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) both feature this phrase on their respective boot screens. Those two handsets now have been joined by the Motorola Moto X and the Motorola Moto G. But because today is April Fools' day, the Lenovo-owned subsidiary added something more than just the Android branding to its boot screen animation. Bigfoot, UFOs and the Loch Ness monster all make appearances.

Motorola is making this available on its Boot Services app on the Google Play Store, inside a folder called "aprilfool". What we won't know until Wednesday, is whether the animation will hang around after April Fools' Day.

This shows the advantages that manufacturers like Motorola and HTC have in publishing their system apps in the Google Play Store. Instead of taking days to roll out an update, those interested can go to the Play Store and merely download an updated app. By the way, feel free to check out the April Fools' boot screen animation by clicking on the video below.
