All of us here at XDA appreciate just how far Android has come. The incredible flagships of today come packed with bleeding edge technology and are hard to complain about, but it wasn't always like this. Tell us about the worst Android phone you've ever owned, and what made it so dreadful.
Always Enter the Correct Password with HideNoPasswords
If you’ve ever entered a password on your mobile device, you’ve surely noticed that password input fields normally hide the inputted characters by showing dots rather than the characters themselves. This is great to prevent casual snooping, but it also results in possible mistakes. Most of us also are well aware of how several consecutive mistakes may lead to account restrictions. So if you’re not in a public area, why not spare yourself of the inconveniences with a handy Xposed Framework module.
If you don’t care about privacy that much, you can use a module created by XDA Senior Member defim. This simple modification removes the dots and replaces them with actual characters. In doing so, it becomes much easier for you to enter the correct password without getting locked out of your account.
This modification, as is the case with every Xposed Framework module does, requires your device to be rooted and have Xposed Framework installed. You must also enable the module in the Xposed Installer.
We strongly recommend you to use this module wisely. Entering a fully visible password in a public place will undoubtedly lead to compromised data and security, so make sure to disable the module when you’re not in a safe place like your own bedroom. Otherwise, don’t complain to us when the funds in your bank account mysteriously vanish.
If your fingers are sloppy and you often make lots of typos when entering your passwords, you can now do something about it. Download the module from the HideNoPasswords thread.

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems. This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...
