Some CyanogenMod apps now available for any Android device thanks to CM Apps
Without a doubt, CyanogenMod is among the most popular custom ROMs for Android – apart from offering stellar performance, the firmware has arguably the largest base of users and developers alike. Thus, novice Android users that want to give custom ROMs a try are usually advised to start by flashing a suitable version of CyanogenMod on their devices.

Still, there are users that are quite reluctant to root their devices because of warranty issues (or just not quite into rooting), so they can't experience the popular firmware on their devices. Luckily, a new tool that arrived on Google Play allows them to taste several CyanogenMod apps on their Android devices - meet CM Apps.

This tool is not developed by Cyanogen, the company behind CyanogenMod, but it allows you to download and install some of its signature apps on any Android device. CM Apps comes with Apollo, a music player, the cLock home and lockscreen widget, the DSP Manager audio-enhancing tool, the customizable Trebuchet launcher, and several others.

What's more, you can download and install the camera app from CyanogenMod 11S, which is identical to the one featured in the OnePlus One, however, it is highly likely that the latter won't run on your device. In fact, the same applies for most of the apps that are featured in CM Apps – you shouldn't expect them to work without issues.

And here is the full list of apps that are included in CM Apps:

  • Apollo
  • Clock widget
  • DSP Manager
  • File Manager
  • Sound Recorder
  • Calculator
  • Torch
  • Trebuchet
  • Wallpapers 
Both CM Apps and the applications that are included in it are free, so give them a try.

Apollo is rubbish! Stock music players are better. But it's a bit better than Play Music! Wonder why CM still uses it and has not made it more practical. cLock widget is outdated and the same widget now more optimized than ever is available in Play Store by the same developers and called Chronus which is a battery efficient clock! File Manager is a kid compared to ES File Explorer! The others are okay. But it's the ROM which is the coolest, being so smooth! These apps are always frozen by titanium backup on my S2!

Galaxy S2? I think I just found the problem.

"Still, there are users that are quite reluctant to root their devices because of warranty issues (or just not quite into rooting), so they can't experience the popular firmware on their devices." As if I could find a 'release' version for Z1 Compact... And they seem to hate dual sim devices too, so CM is really meant for the top smartphones, not necessarily the most sold outside US.

Been using 8SMS as my texting app for sometime. I love being able to reply and mark a message read from the notification shade.
