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...
Moboplayer for Android
XDA member kishin14 told us about a nice player for your Android device, which has been around a few months. Moboplayer is a software that provides high-quality playback for your audio and video files. It allows you to play almost all multimedia formats and it focuses on enhanced library features, which makes it a powerful and easy to use alternative. Moreover, it works on almost all Android devices.
You can grab it for free on the market.

It also plays every file I’ve thrown at it (but haven’t tried mkv’s yet) and has both hardware and software decode mode. (Just remember to long press on video file to select software decode mode).
