Discover Places and People with Pickloc Geo Social Network

We humans are inherently social creatures. After all, even the most basement-dwelling of us still like to get out and interact with other beings from time to time. This need for community can even be seen in things so seemingly unrelated to community as the Waze GPS app, where drivers can interact with other Waze-enabled drivers closeby. I’d even wager to say that this community feeling is part of why Waze has its loyal following.

What if you could get a similar experience when travelling by foot? XDA Senior Member Vahndroid84‘s Pickloc gives a very similar end result for when you’re merely traveling bipedally.

The geo-based social network functions as a virtual bulletin board of sorts, where people in a given location can create locs (boards) of a given location. You can add a photo, name, text, and so on. Then, when others are at the locs’s location, they can see what you have pinned. You can also follow other users you “meet,” and create a community-enabled profile.

Go ahead and be social. Make your way over to the original thread to get started. Now as for that link in the first paragraph, how on earth did they find one of my high school photos?

Would the LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?
