MarketPlaceRegionSwitch for WM

From time to time we bring you an article that is not new but in relevance still actual. This time, we bring up this great application created by Developer and Moderator Chainfire.聽MarketplaceRegionSwitch does exactly what the name implies, allows you to change your market place region to any other you want without the need to manually modify registry settings, regional settings or any other complicated method, no need to even soft reset. The UI is really ugly but as the developer mentioned, the main focus is on the functionality of the application.
Please be sure to read the entire original thread before proceeding.

Here it is people, as promised, MarketPlaceRegionSwitch. What does it do? It allows you to switch MarketPlace to USA, Germany, France, Netherlands, etc. Whatever you want – without mucking with regional settings, soft-resetting, etc. “because I can” 馃槢

I DEMAND you read the entire post before using it, because there are definitely things you should know before using it.

This app actually fools Marketplace into thinking you are from somewhere else. This method is not foolproof, and may be circumvented by Microsoft in the near future. It is not for the faint of heart either.

Why?
Because developers have been left in the cold for manually verifying their apps are in the correct markets. Microsoft have dropped the ball a few times with “published” apps seemingly not being published at all, or incorrectly. While I’m sure Microsoft will fix these issues in due time (and indeed provide the functionality this program offers) for now developers need to check this for themselves. So no, this app is not meant for end-users, but for developers. If you still want to use it, that’s fine by me, but it’s on your own conscience

You can find more information in the聽application thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions聽as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry聽has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success.

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don鈥檛 even use a different launcher - and many don鈥檛 know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
