Desktop Manage your Android Device with Droid2Desk

If you fancy being able to control or manage your Android device from you desktop, take a look at a project that XDA forum member BootsSiR has been working on.

Based on the devs’ Nexus One, Droid2Desk should work with any Android device running Eclair or higher.  The desktop Windows app allows you to connect to your phone via WiFi and control various functions such as view and send SMS, view notifications such as GMail and GTalk as well as remotely control the camera and transfer files to and from the device.

Additionally, the app shows device details such as name, type, manufacturer, battery status and battery info.

In the SMS view, as well as showing all current SMS conversations on the device, Droid2Desk also shows individual conversations and allows you to continue on an SMS conversation. The camera currently takes still shots, but the XDA dev has stated that video could be a possibility.

Droid2Desk is currently work in progress, so to follow the development and provide feedback, keep your eyes on the development thread.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship.
