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)

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
