Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
FPS games have gotten a stronghold in the gaming world. One in particular, Call of Duty, is an astounding and realistic game that places you as a character in between wars and special missions with one of its objectives being kill or be killed. If you feel like giving your device a touch of Modern Warfare 3, which is the game’s latest incarnation, then you should really check out the boot animation that has been put together by XDA member sheanzyy. The dev basically states that he grabbed a piece of the Youtube trailer and made it loop to a certain point so that the animation will play until your device fully boots. Since it is with green, laser type graphics, it goes hand in hand with our favorite little green robot. The looping is quite seamless, so it looks pretty good. Moreover, the dev has posted a video showing his device booting while running the animation. The one thing is that the animation is quite heavy size wise, with a whooping 15 MB!
Please leave some feedback if you enjoyed this.

It’s looped and will just replay. This is my first boot animation….first of anything in this sorts. Going to do a complete overhaul this week of it, so please refrain from flaming this noob . In Xbox terms…I’m a scrub

If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
