While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
Money Is Time Or Time Is Money!
Have you ever heard the saying, “time is money”? I know I have. I’ve heard it more than I’ve had hot dinners. But I’ve always wondered whether or not the phrase does apply, and if so, how much money is lost at any particular occasion.
XDA member Tricky-Design has got our backs on this one. He’s designed an app which actually allows you to calculate how much money a specific amount of time actually costs. Pretty handy, if you need to calculate how much time and money you are actually wasting.
The app supports a bunch of cool features, including an easy to use interface with click-wheels. Money to time conversion and time to money conversion, and everything else listed below.
- Supports money up to 99,999.99
- Supports dollar ($), pound (£) and euro (€)
- Supports time up to about year
- Support both 24/7 scale or working hours
Not only a great idea, but extremely helpful. It’s available for free on the Android Market and by QR code on the thread, so why not be a dear and dash on over to the original thread and grab yourself a piece of great-idea goodness!

But since it is a NVIDIA device, it does things beyond the simple streaming and gaming that is expected in this age. The SHIELD can locally run and stream 4K content to a capable TV. It is compatible with existing...
There are some excellent ‘AAA’ tier games by huge development houses that offer fun, and, most of the time, in-app purchases. There is no doubt that some of these games are great. However, at XDA we like to keep an eye on the little guy. Some of the more successful Android developers have started out as the little guy. Today we celebrate another simple game developed by an XDA member. XDA Senior Member Rolf Smit offers up a 2D sandbox...
