Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
App Editing Software Virtuous Ten Studio Releases Public Beta
With a lot of tools out there to help users modify, de-compile and re-compile .APK files, there are few out there that seem to offer the complete package. Normally, users would have to grab up a few applications in order to get all the proper tools to work effectively. Well, not long ago, this was a problem that Virtuous Ten Studio was working to correct. With an all-in-one design philosophy, Virtuous Ten Studio aims to be the de facto application for users looking to do virtually any kind of modding.
XDA Forum Moderator and Recognized Developer Diamondback initially ran a private beta for experienced developers comfortable with Smali, and users good at testing and reporting bugs. However, now the software package is ready for prime time testing in the form of a public beta.
A rehash of what this awesome application is capable of shows that the features include:
Never before seen UI
Edit smali code like never before
Communicate with your device with yet to be seen ease
Enhance your workflow with useful additions
And that’s really more of an overview of the features. Users have options ranging from working on multiple .APK and .JAR files to a full help menu for understanding smali code and what each class, call, and goto is used for. With the addition of many third party .APK tools included in the application itself natively, users will also have all the features of those applications as well.
You can also do a world of other things, such as debugging your phone via the built-in Logcat Viewer, consulting the Java source of any smali code, and creating easy backups. With so many features and such a clean UI, Virtuous Ten Studio is looking to make code editing and modification as easy and streamlined as possible.
