Learn How to Make Android Games

When people use the term development, a number of things come to mind. Root methods, AOSP ROMs, kernels, all-in-one toolkits, and a range of assorted other developments. There are a few things they all have in common, but most of all, these developments focus around increasing your device’s functionality. While that is the most commonly practiced type of development on XDA, that does not mean that users can’t learn other kinds of development here. For instance, there is now a tutorial that covers coding video games.

XDA Senior Member tjdwowh, who has brought Android games to XDA already, has released a tutorial that will gives aspiring developers a good start in creating their first game. The tutorial is still in the works, but tjdwowh already has some pretty good information up for aspiring developers to absorb.

It is broken up into sessions intended to be done on a per day basis (i.e. Day 1, Day 2). Day 1 looks like pretty much any other application development tutorial, as users are run through how to install Java and Eclipse on their dev machines. Day 2 is also pretty standard, as it explains programming-level concepts such as classes, declaring variables, and proper syntax. With the rest of the tutorial still being written, users can expect things like sprite and object creation, design, gaming mechanics, and a lot more.

For anyone looking to get into the game development field, it’s a must read. To get to the tutorial, head to the original thread.

Would The LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

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...

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?

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...
