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...
Free XDA T-Shirts!
Some of you may remember a while back, we were tinkering a bit with the idea of making XDA t-shirts to show off your community spirit. Well, after a while we found a relatively good vendor that sent us a few samples, so that we could evaluate how well they would be received by the community. As you can see from the screenshot, they are pretty much directed at us since no one outside of XDA will know what ORD actually means. In any case, we thought about selling these samples at a very low cost to members but we figured that instead we would give some of these away for free! As many of you are outside of the US and because we are not made of gold, the only thing we would ask is for you to pay for s&h (judging from the size of a rolled up t-shirt, it shouldn’t be more than $5 to ship this anywhere in the world, but you are free to get your own shipping quote as well). We will ship them out via USPS to keep the costs to you at a minimum as well.
The t-shirts will be given out to the first 150 people who submit this online form in which you will need to fill out basic contact information:
- XDA username;
- E-mail address that you check frequently (the tracking number will be sent there);
- Real Name (for shipping purposes);
- Shipping Address.
That is it! Best of luck! We will announce the winners once all the applications have been received.

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...
