Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
Add Unlimited Apps to the Galaxy Note 2 Multi-Window Selection
Some time ago, XDA members put in the effort and figured out the applications that are compatible with the new multi-window feature found on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It turns out that list may not be necessary anymore, as a mod was recently released that makes any app compatible.
XDA Senior Member goddamnit has released a mod that allows users to add any application to the multi user interface. It also allows users to add as many apps as they want. This is one of those mods that everyone knew was coming, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome than it’s actually here.
Using it is pretty simple. You flash the mod in recovery and then you should be able to add whatever apps you want to the multi window. Of course, this is an early release, so there are some bugs. First and foremost, you’ll have to flash the mod made specifically for your ROM’s version. Currently, LJ1, LJ3, and LJ7 are supported. There could also be some problems depending on whether your ROM is odexed or deodexed. As per the norm, your mileage may vary.
To check out the mod, go to the original thread.

We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
