A new set of XDA Forum Moderators from Google’s Legal Department will also make sure that...
Challenge Your Brain with Sequences
Good old fashioned math, how many times have we doubted your innate ability to drive us completely insane? How many times have we wished that we followed art instead of engineering? The sole thought of math being useful in real life has been a puzzling idea since elementary school. Well, I personally love math, but most students utter complaints like the ones I just mentioned more often than not. There are many ways to change opinions on different subjects. For instance, if you have a trouble eater who hates veggies, there are various ways to make veggies more appealing. Same goes for math. And what better way to learn to love what you hate than by making it fun? If you haven’t already had your evening coffee, it may be time to hit up the old grinder before getting hooked on this.
XDA Fourm Member Christoph Mayr brings us a game that he called Sequences. Much as with school homework, the game’s objective is to complete number sequences with missing digits. Logic and some basic understanding of math are absolute requirements to play, but knowing these concepts is only half the battle. You need to understand them well, due to increasing levels of difficulty. If completing all 100 levels of the game is not your cup of tea, you could always try Time mode, which will give you a set amount of time to solve as many sequences as you can.
The dev is looking for feedback, bug reports, and ideas to implement in this brain-twisting game. So, if you decide to take it for a spin, please do not forget to swing by the the thread and leave a comment or two. The dev is actually quite actively squashing bugs as the releases are coming out almost daily. So, please have a go and spread the joy of math.
You can find more information in the original thread.

The lockscreen is a part of the OS that we see hundreds of times every day, whether we're using Android or iOS. The look of the lockscreen depends on the Android version, device manufacturer or ROM chef. In short, it differs for almost every user. Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989. Hi Locker can be found both on the Play store and...
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...
