Managing Multiple Projects on DevDB Just Got Easier
To date we’ve had many thousands of projects added to our Development Database (or DevDB for short), which benefits developers by allowing for more control over development projects (with tabs for screenshots, downloads, bug reports, feature requests, Q&A, and more) and helps XDA users discover the best ROMs, kernels, and apps for their devices.
We’ve just added a feature to DevDB which will make it much easier to manage the same project across multiple devices with a handy variable system. Users can now set up variables to cover common installation instructions, credits, bugs, and other repeated information so that anywhere the variable is placed, the preset text will show up. The user can set his or her own variables such that “[#InstallationInstructions]” could be used for installation instructions, and so forth. Access the Variable Manager to set up variables for your development projects. And of course, if you have any suggestions or run into any problems with DevDB, there’s a thread for that.

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
