Browse Your Favorite Communities Freely with Forum Fiend

Long gone are the days of solely using a desktop or laptop to access your favorite online content. Many sites and services now receive more visitors via mobile than desktop. But given that you’re here on XDA, I probably didn’t have to tell you that. Chances are that most of you have used a mobile app to access our forums—most likely, the official XDA forum app. The problem with dedicated forum applications is that you end up with one for every forum. And those of you who frequent several different forums will no doubt opt for a more versatile, all-in-one solution.

Forum Fiend by XDA Forum Member bastecklein is one such solution. It’s a forum browsing application with a similar layout and functionality to the more well known options, and it makes use of the Tapatalk API. It does, however, have some rather nifty features for both users and forum owners that set it apart.

The application allows you to set a specific color scheme for each individual forum that you visit. Site owners can also set their choice of colors as a default for users with a little JSON wizardry. There is also the option to turn certain threads into a “pseudo chat room.” This is a handy feature for fast moving threads that allows you quickly and easily access them from anywhere in the app by swiping from the right hand side of the screen. Again, forum owners can automatically assign certain threads to make use of this feature by default if they wish to do so.

Supporting Android 4.0 and up, Forum Fiend is available free from the Play Store. Be sure to stop by the forum thread and leave the developer some feedback.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
