With XDA being a community of Android enthusiasts, it is not uncommon to see lots of bashing on Apple's iPhone here. There are different reasons for the hate, but we'd like to hear your number one reason for not going with the iPhone. Let us know your thoughts below!
Create Folders On Your Windows Phone Homescreen
Windows Phone hacker Jaxbot (quite literally) has brought us another useful homebrew utility: Folders for Windows Phone. It does exactly what it says – you can create folders and pin them as tiles onto your homescreen.
Of course, you’ll need to be developer unlocked in order to sideload the XAP, but interop unlock is not necessary: To add custom apps to folder, it uses a workaround by searching the marketplace for its GUID and pulls the app icon from there as well. Currently, this creates another limitation in that only the US marketplace is supported – most apps can be added just fine, even if you’re located somewhere else, only those few ones that are not available in the US are not supported yet.
It’s still an early release and the developer has promised to fix bugs and add more features over time, so head over to the forum thread and remember to leave some nice feedback.
