AR.DRone Unofficially Coming For Android

This is not exactly a XDA development, but as it is becoming available for Android, we figured we would share it with the rest of the community, particularly with those of you not aware of its existence. XDA member nebenezer found this little gem floating around in the Android market and decided to share it with the community. AR.DRone is an augmented reality game that basically uses your device as a remote control for a radio controlled toy drone. The drone is equipped with a camera, which will show you an FPS type of perspective and your objective is to shoot your opponent down. The best part is that it isn’t complete simulation as you area actually flying something (no physics engine can match real physics). It was originally designed for Apple products. However, it seems to be making its way into Android, although not through official channels. The app at this point does not support a bunch of different things, and according to the description by the dev in the market, messing with the Wifi in your Drone will void your warranty.

If you have one of these and have tried it, please share with the rest of the community your experiences.

Kinda cool. Expensive though; ~$300

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
