Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Get Organized with pTasks v1.0
XDA member pangel83‘s pTasks has been popular enough that it earned a spot in Windows Marketplace. For those of you not familiar with it, this application will help you to keep control of your expenses such as on supermarket, gas, or any expense that you incur. Moreover, this is the ideal tool to get organized, so that we remember to get everything we need when we go out shopping, even the little stuff that we sometimes forget to buy. This update includes finger scrolling and multilingual support among others.
This application is still on early development process and some bugs still need to be fixed, so feedback from users will be very appreciated by the developer. You can download this app from Windows Marketplace for free.

So I got fed up waiting for someone to write a decent tasks interface for WM, and put something together to make my life easier. I am reasonably happy with the result, and therefore I am releasing it here on XDA.
Some things to keep in mind:
- .NET CF 3.5 Required.
- To get reminders, enable “Reminders” in the “Notification Sounds” (Sense 2.5) or “Sounds & Notifications” (elsewhere)
- 100% compatible with outlook exchange and activesync
- Could be used in conjunction with Remember the Milk’s MilkSync
New in 1.0
- Modify Scrolling Speed
- Flagged Emails
- Different colour for tasks due today.
You can find more information on the application thread.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things. The SlimRoms GitHub repos are getting updated with some major changes showing up. Most notably, some projects are getting a new 5.1 branch: lp5.1! A new, revamped and open source website is also in the works, with a look inspired by material design. We also got a tip about an...
