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)

However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
