Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
ArkSwitcH Task Manager for WM Updated
XDA member Arktronic presents an update to the famous ArkSwitch task manger preferred by many Chefs to include on their custom ROMs as it´s powerful and easy to use, but for those not having it included on their ROMs, you can download the stand alone application.
Updated version 1.2.0 adds quick killing of the foreground app by “scratching” the activation field, German translation and more registry tweaks, including one to disable the “Close All” confirmation. Also, the new version fixes the shortcut creation issue. Multi resolution devices are supported.

[APP][2010-09-04][v1.2.0] ArkSwitch: the task manager, upgraded!
There are many task managers floating around out there, with lots of neat features and great UIs. I’ve been looking for a good replacement for the HTC Task Manager home screen button that no longer works properly in Windows Mobile 6.5.x, and I’ve been unable to find one I really like. So I made my own!
ArkSwitch can be opened from any screen that has the top bar visible – I tried to make it simple yet unobtrusive.
You can click the text of an app to bring it to the foreground, click the icon to view the App Info screen, or click the “X” image to close it.
Please see the changelog in the second post.

I ASK FOR YOUR HELP:
If you are using ArkSwitch in your ROM, please post a message here telling me so. I would really like to know. Also, if you make themes, please post them here for everyone else to enjoy. I would appreciate that.
Also, if you’re a developer and would like to help with implementing any features, I’d be glad to accept your patches, changesets, etc.
You can find more information in the application thread.

OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
