Feel Who Is Sending You Anything with WhoIsIt for Android
You are probably familiar with ringtone assigning programs for Smartphone devices. Basically, the apps allow a group of users or individual users to have a specific ringtone, so even without looking at the screen, you will know who calls you when. XDA member awjones has taken this concept a few steps further out with WhoIsIt Beta. The app allows the user to assign ringtones and also vibration patterns to specific users or groups. However, this not only applies to phone calls like most other apps. You can set this for SMS, MMS, and even e-mails, so in essence, you will know when you got that important contract by e-mail, even if you don’t look at your device.

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be. Your phone's processor runs at different frequencies when you're using the device. The CPU...
