Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
Need to Learn C Programming? There’s a Thread for That
While the unofficial ethos of XDA Developers deals with the hacking and development of various handheld devices, it is also a treasure trove of information. You can find tutorials on every day things like installing ADB, brush up on your terminology, and even stuff like compiling and decompiling APK files. Whether you’re here to show off your skills or learn some skills, there’s a thread on XDA for you.
One thing devs typically run into is programming. One of the things any dev needs to learn about, be it a ROM or kernel dev or an Android app dev, are various programming languages. XDA Senior Member mhrsolanki2020 has decided to help the community out by posting a tutorial that’ll help users learn C Programming.
So far there are three chapters posted, with many more still to come. Chapter one deals mostly in the concept of C Programming and explains things like what a program is and how they work. Chapter two deals with flow charts, their symbols, what they mean, and how they work. Chapter three goes into further depth on variables and constraints in flow charts. Since any programmer knows that learning flow charts is par for the course, it’s good to get it out of the way early. Future tutorials will deal more with C Programming in terms of proper syntax and how to actually write a good application.
If you’re looking to learn a little C Programming, check out the original thread.

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
