March of the Droids 2014 Just Two Weeks Away; It’s Not Too Late to Register
If you want to attend an Android developers’ conference, we have you covered. But if you’re after a consumer-geared Android event, there are quite a few options all across the globe. Here in the US, we have the Big Android Barbeque. In India, there’s DroidSync. And in the UK, there’s March of the Droids.
We first talked about March of the Droids’ predecessor Glasdroid two years ago. For those who have a short attention span, Glasdroid was a 2012 event by the fine folks over at FreeYourAndroid geared to bring regional Android users together. The event expanded for 2013 and became March of the Droids. Now, MotD has returned for 2014, with its next event coming up in just 16 days.
March of the Droids 2014 is a one day conference starting on Saturday May 10, 2014 at 12:00 BST. It will be held in the Life Centre in Bournemoth, UK. This year’s theme is KitKat, and the team will also explore the history of Android. Tickets are a reasonable £12.50, and can be purchased from now until the actual conference date.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
