Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

BBQLog Application Hits Google Play Store
Back in May, we brought you news of a different kind of changelog for CyanogenMod. BBQLog is a website that pulls CM change logs directly from the CyanogenMod GIT. This allowed Nightly flashers to know exactly what was changed between their last install and their newest one. Back then, we mentioned was that BBQLog had an Android application on the way. That app has landed.
XDA Senior Member androidindian lets us know about the application, which is a free Google Play download. The feature list is much the same as the website including:
- List nightlies for all devices
– List all CyanogenMod changes
– List devices’ next nightlies changes
– List devices’ specific nightly changes
– Tablet and phone UI!
If you’re a CyanogenMod flasher, this is definitely an application that is worth checking out. Apparently, there is also an Easter Egg within the application for users to find, but no one has yet spilled the beans on what it could be.
