Finish Your Messages Typing Only a Few Letters – Scrybe for Android
Not really a native XDA application, but rather neat and worth mentioning here. XDA member Paul22000 points us to a new keyboard for Android which is built upon Google Scribe API. The app will pretty much work like T9 or any word completion program with the only difference that the words chosen by the keyboard are not just random words, but rather are based on the message itself. The keyboard can literally complete your sentence without needing more than one or two letters out of one of your last words.
According to some of the comments in the thread, the keyboard is a bit slow, but considering the accuracy of word selections, we would think that it very much makes up for lack of speed. Try it out and leave your thoughts.

It’s quite slow, but from a technological standpoint, it’s very cool. I can definitely see the potential.
You can find more information in the application thread.

One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of. Automation The first is...
It has now been seen that Android M will receive a new app drawer as part of the stock launcher. The first four icons you will see in your drawer now will be automatically updated to represent your recently used applications. Whether or not this will be directly based on those apps seen in your recent apps menu or uses a combination of that and your most frequently used apps remains to be seen. Below this is the start of a standard...
