The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...
Keep Track and Stats on Your Car with Auto-Mate for WP7
Apps have already started surfacing for WP7, which are either conceptual or works in progress. XDA member barryallott has posted about one that he is developing called Auto-mate. The app allows a user to keep track of his/her car’s stats and schedules in a nice and organized manner. A car can be selected from a huge car database and by entering some information, the app will calculate several statistics like fuel consumption, MPG, and more. Moreover, the app will generate very good looking graphs to show you the trends and will alert you of upcoming service maintenance checks.
Again, this is still a work in process, but is looking very promising. Check out the Youtube video that the dev has posted and give him any feedback that you may have.
I’ve been a member of XDA for a while (have a hero and been on the villanrom builds since they began). But I am a developer full time and so I have decided to start in Windows Phone 7. I know silverlight, I know .NET so why not.
I have started the company ‘Infinite Monkey Theorem’ and this is a showing of the first application.
auto-mate. This app allows you to record your cars stats at each fuel up and service to allow you to view statistics about your cars. This app will also allow you to setup service types (months or miles) and the app will schedule them for you taking into account your mileage per year. MOT and Tax renewals are stored and show when they are close.
You can find more information in the application thread.

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
