New on XDA: Developer Discussion for the Note II
We’re trying an experiment in the Samsung Galaxy Note II forum that, if successful, will be rolled out to many more forums across XDA. We’ve added a Developer Discussion forum, intended only for high-level discussion between developers. The aim of this new forum is to give developers a place to “talk shop” and help each other with device-specific development challenges and issues.
XDA Recognized Developer garyd9 recently presented the idea for this forum to the administrative team. And because we see it as a new way to keep development strong on XDA, we are eager to try it out. While the forum is public, and thus viewable for the benefit of everyone hoping to learn, please do not post in this new forum unless you’re a developer. Failure to heed this warning will result in the deletion of your post and possibly other actions upon repeated offense.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
