Epic Touch 4G Sources Released – Good Move, Samsung!

Well, we truly gotta give it to Samsung this time as they seem to be making a turn for the better and trying to get close to developers at the same time. XDA member Korey_Nicholson just informed us that apparently the Epic 4G Touch did not get released by itself. It looks like the kernel sources (D710) are also available for download in the Samsung website. So, for all of you who were impatiently waiting to start developing custom work on this brand new device, now is your chance. Also, this goes to show all the skeptics in the crowd that even large sized companies can have their good days as well.

In any case, you will be able to download, tweak, compile, rinse, and repeat to your heart’s content. So, what are you waiting for? Go for it and if you happen to create something good, make sure that you share it with the rest of the community.

Scroll down to find D710 and have fun building those kernels!

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
