Geolocation & Lost Phone App for Android

Here you have another application similar to MobileMe or htcsense.com for you Android 2.2 (and up) device. Promethium is a fairly responsive application developed by XDA member richbayliss that will let you show your device on a map and make the alarm sound, all via the web portal. Beta slots are limited, so hurry up to get one.
The latest version have an improved LiveTrack feature. The developer mentions that LiveTrack means the position is sent to the server roughly every 15 seconds by default, or at your pre-configured schedule. Having this feature on will affect your battery life, so make sure you haven’t got it switched on in the portal. Also, you can always check “Running Services” to see if it is running.

[APP] Promethium = Geolocation & Lost Phone App

Hi,

I have created a geolocation app a bit like MobileMe or htcsense.com for any Android 2.2 device with Market. Allows you to show your device on a map and make the alarm sound, all via a web portal.

http://promethium.mobi/

This site is the main portal, with a limited number of accounts. These will be BETA accounts as I need people to trial the system to get feedback etc. Currently the email address has to be unique, but doesn’t need to be a valid address, however this will be useful when you try and report issues.

Once you have signed up, the latest APK for the client application will be downloadable from the portal toolbar. This app will ask for the same login credentials used on the portal, and once connected you are ready to use the portal functions.

Check the site periodically, as I will allow more signups as the application progresses.

Please can we keep all bug reports within this thread, I would rather develop this in the open.

Continue to the original thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...

Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be.

The OnePlus 2 & The Year of Smartphone Compromises

We are very close to entering the last third of 2015, and we have now seen many of the biggest flagship lines issue their latest iterations. Phones like the LG G4 and Galaxy S6 were some of the most anticipated devices in smartphone history, and the hype surrounding the M9 and OnePlus 2 had us discussing for weeks. But for the most part, the awe has vanished.   There is a feeling that virtually all of us at the XDA office...
