Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
Desire HD Gets The First Ever Pyramid Port!!! (Yes, Sense 3.0 Too)
And just a day after the dump was discovered floating around in 911sniper, it seems that the race to get the first “working” (maybe I should say booting at this point) port of the newest HTC Sensation has finally come to an end. The lucky winner was the Desire HD thanks to XDA member capychimp. The rom called RCMixHD is in alpha stages at this point, which means, in essence, that about 60-70 percent of the rom is either buggy or non-functional, but considering this is the first custom rom ever to be sporting the new UI, we honestly don’t care too much at this point. As with every port, things will slowly be developed to get everything functional sooner or later… did I mention that the rom has working Sense 3.0?
This is fantastic news for all Desire HD owners out there (and obviously for owners of similar hardware like the EVO, Thunderbolt, and Inspire). If you have tried this rom and have played with Sense 3.0, please leave some feedback.

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
