DroidVPN Helps Android Users Browse Anonymously
Some people just need their web to themselves (for whatever reason). For those on Android who crave VPN, a good client can be hard to find.
Well, this is a situation XDA Member DroidVPN is attempting to rectify with their Android app, DroidVPN.
The app provides users with a few features (with more promised from the developer), including:
DroidVPN can unblock ISP restrictions, unblock voip, bypass firewalls, and lets you browse the web anonymously.
DroidVPN is using its own simple and efficient protocol so its not using PPTP or L2TP which is sometimes blocked by your ISP.
The proprietary protocol is pretty cool, especially with the aforementioned problems with PPTP and L2TP which is one of the things that makes this app unique. Just be sure you’re phone is running Android 2.1 or higher and you’re rooted.
The only downside, for the time being, is the app is in a closed beta. However, if you want to try it out and help with the testing, you can head over to the original thread where you can find additional information on the app and instructions on how to sign up for the beta.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
