Big News App Brings the Big News Bigger

When it comes to news feeds, everyone has their preferences. Some prefer for their content to be saved for offline viewing. Others may like Google Reader compatibility or require that a widget be included. No matter the case, there is a news application out there for just about everyone. Recently, an application was released that brings simplicity and size to the table.

XDA Forum Member lz2323 and XDA Senior Member BlackBearBlanc teamed up to create Big News. Big News is a very simple news application that features gigantic text and an interface that’s very easy to use. Some other features of the app include:

A simple, clean and cool unofficial Google Reader client, Big News.
With a beautiful widget, fast synchronization, Big News provides a happy reading experience to you.
Features:
– Beautiful transparent widget.
– Customizations of widget.
– Fast sync.
– And more…

So while there are many RSS and news readers out there with a million features, this one keeps the important core features and cleans the rest out. The Google Reader integration is nice because it allows you to set up your news widget without much more than signing into Google Reader and letting it sync. It’s one potential downfall is that it only shows one news story at a time. This means that to see the rest/ you still have to open the app up and look.

For additional details, check out the application thread.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
