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...
Guide Your Sheep to Safety with Finger Shepherd
Just a coupe of days ago, we brought you news about a game called Agent Sheep. In that article, we said that sheep were effectively “one of the most under-utilized farm animals in the world of gaming.” It seems that this was not entirely accurate because as it turns out, while we were writing about this, yet another game featuring the fluffy quadrupeds emerged from the depths of XDA-Developers, and XDA Forum Member ShibbyUK is the one responsible for making this happen.
Finger Shepherd is an interesting puzzle type of game where you, a shepherd dog, need to pick up your sheep from across the land, flock them together, and make sure that they make it in one piece back in their pen, all in the least possible amount of time. You start off with your sheep scattered throughout different parts of the screen. Each time you touch on the screen will represent you barking at the sheep to try to get it to go where you want it to go. Sheep will try to run away from the bark, so you will need to use this to guide them all the way into the pen. As you go further along in the game, things will start getting more complex, as there will be obstacles that will either distract your sheep or put them in peril such as water, harvesters, and more.
The game also features full 3D graphics and a score board where you can see your best times compared to other players around the world. The dev is looking for feedback and suggestions on how to improve the game. If you happen to download it, please let the dev know what you would like to see in future versions of it.

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...
Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
