There are tons of choices to choose from when looking for a great alarm app for Android. While the stock Clock app for AOSP does the job, it may lack some of the more advanced features from competitors. Let us know what your favorite alarm clock app is for Android and why.
Today is a big day for the XDA-Developers community. We’re officially launching our first sister site, iPhone-Developers.com. We created this site because many members requested to have an iPhone section on XDA, and we wanted to oblige these requests in some way. But instead of putting iPhone development within the XDA forums, we decided to launch a separate site with a separate server and a separate admin (that’s Arbre), ensuring that we don’t clutter XDA (we know the forum index is already long enough!) or slow the site due to increased traffic.
While iPhone-Developers and XDA-Developers are separate sites, XDA members can instantly copy their important account data to iPhone-Developers by hitting the “Import XDA Account” button in the upper right corner of the new site. All XDA usernames are reserved on iPhone-Developers, so there is no chance of someone taking your username.
We’re not exactly sure what will become of iPhone-Developers, as these things tend to take on a life of their own (as was the case with XDA many years ago). Currently, it serves as a fantastic resource for discussion of app development and Jailbreaking–the site offers app reviews, a terrific Jailbraking wizard, and a variety of how-to guides. We hope that iPhone-Developers will do for the iOS world what XDA has done for Android and Windows Phone, and we invite you to take a look at the site and make a few posts in the forums.

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...
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...
