There are tons of choices to choose from when looking for a great alarm app for Android. While the stock Clock app for AOSP does the job, it may lack some of the more advanced features from competitors. Let us know what your favorite alarm clock app is for Android and why.
CWM 6 Makes an Appearance on the TF101
Since the announcement from Asus that Jelly Bean would be bestowed upon its Transformer series all the way back to the original Transformer, the development scene for the TF101 has been booming with activity. There have been new ROMs, new patches, and an overall renewed sense that this device, while being over-powered by its younger brothers, still has quite a bit of life left in it.
The work of XDA Forum Member RaymanFX manifests yet again in this sub-forum, and this time it does it in the form of a brand new recovery. Most Android users are undoubtedly familiar with ClockWork Mod, which is a custom recovery image used in a large percentage of unlocked devices. With it, you can flash ROMs, kernels, other recoveries, zip packages, and much more. This latest installment of the infamous recovery, created by XDA Recognized Developer Koush, brings in some much desired functionality to the device. The main appeal is that much like TWRP by Team Win, this recovery is touch enabled (at least one of its versions is), so banging on the volume rockers to get to the folder that you need is not a problem anymore. Another nice feature is that this recovery, unlike many of its predecessors, has the ability to back up the kernel as well.
Please do keep in mind that this is just the initial release of this recovery, and as such it has somewhat limited functionality. Upcoming revisions promise to bring in the ability to browse the internal SD card. This means that, unless you feel like booting and rebooting while getting in and out of recovery, you will need to make sure that whatever you are planning on flashing is in the external card.
You can choose your flavor if you’d rather not have touchscreen capabilities on recovery. Please leave some feedback for the dev if this worked the way it should, and look forward to newer versions being released shortly.
ALL MY RECOVERIES HAVE A FULLY WORKING BACKUP SYSTEM (CAN BACKUP KERNEL) !

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
