Browse GitHub Code with Gitskarios

GitHub is a Web-based distributed revision control and source code management system. It is home to quite a few open source projects here on XDA. Developers use GitHub to store sources for kernels, applications, libraries, and other projects on the Web. The main goal is to allow developers to keep records of their commits, which then enables other users to verify the work and help to improve the code. The service is so popular that XDA users can even link their GitHub profile with their XDA account.

The official GitHub application for Android lacks some crucial functions, so some alternative apps made by community are growing in popularity. One such app by XDA Forum Member alorma is called Gitskarios. Gitskarios allows its users to browse current repositories, star them, and watch the followers. The application serves all the basic functionality needed to browse code on GitHub. The only thing that is missing is commit browsing, but hopefully it will be added in the future.

The application is a very fast way of accessing the code repositories of your favorite developers and reviewing their work. It’s one of the applications that should be installed if you are a fan of open source software.

Check the latest code and help to improve it. The first step you need to take is to obtain the latest version of this application by visiting the Gitskarios application thread.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
