HelloWorld Tutorial to Help Beginners Create Their First App

Have you ever wanted to develop your own app? If so, we suggest reading XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler‘s article on how to create an Android app and watching his video on how to set up Eclipse and the Android SDK.

However, many users just getting started want a basic guide to follow in order to get their feet wet. Now, thanks to XDA Forum Senior Member rezo609, we have a complete step-by-step tutorial aimed at creating a simple “HelloWorld” app. In addition to his detailed instruction, rezo609 has included all necessary download links to further simplify the learning process.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

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.
