Mobile Midwest Conference to Discuss Trending Mobility

Mobile MidWestWhen people typically think about XDA they think custom ROMs, kernels, and themes–and these three bring a lot to XDA. What people sometimes forget is that mobile applications also contribute to XDA, with Android Apps and Games being one of our largest sections. Last year, we created the App Development Forums so that those interested in learning about, discussing, and collaborating on app development would have a central place.

One of the ways we also look to encourage mobile development is through our support of developer resources. We even went so far as to create our own xda:devcon last year. It is to that end that we are announcing our support for the Mobile Midwest Conference coming to Kansas City, MO on April 23, 2014.

Mobile Midwest: Connecting the Future will discuss how mobile is creating new opportunities in the economy and altering every facet of life. It will also explore how developers and companies can leverage “Mobile First” to create new opportunities for themselves and their company. Attendees will hear about the latest trends and discover insights from innovators who are all solving different types of problems in the industry (mobile security, mobile health, mobile payments, mobile AI, etc).

The lineup of speakers includes Silicon Valley founders & executives recognized by Time, Forbes & Inc:

  • Christy Wyatt – CEO, Good Technology
  • Steve Huffman – Co-Founder, Hipmunk / Co-Founder, Reddit
  • Matt Galligan – Co-Founder & CEO – Circa
  • Ben Milne – CEO & Co-Founder, Dwolla
  • Raj Singh – CEO & Founder, TempoAI
  • Suneet Singh Tuli – CEO & Founder, Datawind
  • Dr. David Albert – Co-Founder & Chief Scientist, AliveCor

Join 400+ developers in Kansas City with a full day pass for only $299. Be one of the first 5 registrants to use promo code xdadev to save 30%!

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
