Empty Those Windows Mobile Rounds with Modern Battlefield

Long after Microsoft themselves decided to jump ship from Windows Mobile to its successor Windows Phone, the developers on our lovely forums continue the tradition of making the most out of our devices, no matter what vintage the OS may be from. Unfortunately however, one area that has traditionally found difficulty in keeping pace is gaming.

Generally, platforms such as Android and iOS seem to receive all the first-person shooter love with releases such as N.O.V.A and Modern Combat. Now, thanks in part to XDA forum member raving_nanza, this can be said for the gaming situation on Windows Mobile. While not quite as immersive as its cousins on more modern mobile OSes, Modern Battlefield shows die hard Windows Mobile loyalists that their devices are far from dead.

The game’s currently released beta version is fully functional, complete with plenty of guns, sounds, and UI refinements. However, the future holds even more significant features such as updated graphics and more! In the words of the developer:

TODO LIST:
*update graphics

(buildings, enimies, and vehicles etc)
*add bullet animation
*make blood animation slightly transparent
*add a save/load feature

(im not exactly sure how to do save/load but ill try)
*improve the zoom feature 
(gona try and remove the Zoom Out button so its just one button to Zoom In/Out)
*create inventory menu
(inventory menu will pause the game for the ability to change gun freely with a description of the guns, this will replace the Zoom Out button)

As the year progresses, we draw further away from Google's annual I/O conference, and closer to the time when the latest hardware from Mountain View is made available to the public.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
