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...
Dolphin HD 5 Browser Private Beta
The Android Market’s “most popular web browser is being updated to version 5.0″, so says the Dolphin Browser Blog. Thanks to XDA member Androidboy35961, who made us aware of this fact. The new update to the browser will feature at Google’s developer conference. However, if you’re not able to make it to San Francisco for any particular reason, (a big one being that there is a gigantic body of water in the way, at least for me), you can apply to be added to the private beta test list.
I know I’m applying, but the big question is, are you? Want to know what you have to do to apply? Well, it’s simple. First things first, follow Dolphin on Twitter and Facebook. Simple enough so far, right? Next, tell Dolphin “Why would you be a good Dolphin 5.0 tester?”, using the hashtag #dolphinhd5 or the mention @dolphinbrowser.
Dolphin will then wade through all of the applications and let you know today or tomorrow. So act quickly, get your applications in!

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. 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...
