Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" 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...
Learn More about Android Business and Development at DroidSync 2014 in Mumbai
A couple of weeks ago, we announced a new initiative to better serve our Indian user base. But in addition to the new xda.in homepage, we would also like to highlight some of the most pertinent mobile news that relates to our second largest traffic source. As such, we would like to talk a little about DroidSync 2014, an Android developer and business conference that will take place early next month in Mumbai.
In a way, you can think of DroidSync as sort of an Indian Big Android BBQ. But rather than exclusively covering Android development, DroidSync 2014 also covers the business side of the Android ecosystem. In other words, it is one of the few conferences aimed at covering the entire Android ecosystem.
The conference itself is a one-day event, starting on April 5th at 9:30 am local time in Mumbai. It takes place in the Classique Club, and Early Bird registration starts at 1000 Rupees. However, the first 20 people to register between now and March 10 using the discount code “XDA-DrOIdSyNc” will receive 20% off of the registration fees.
Those looking to get in on the DroidSync action should head over to the official site to learn more. But don’t put it off, as only the first 20 users will be able to use the coupon code!

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...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.

A new, revamped and open source website is also in the works, with a look inspired by material design. We also got a tip about an...
