If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
Noozy Audio Player Brings Unique Sound
There are a plethora of music applications for Android. Some of them are basic music players and others have various extra features. None of them have Google Music support. However, each music player seems to have its own loyal following—especially VLC and XBMC. There’s a new audio player making its way around that brings along its own brand of sound.
The app is called Noozy Audio Player. It was posted to XDA by Forum Member skeletonboy and it packs a lot of interesting features. For the most part, it looks like an application you’d see on a Windows Phone 7 device, given its Metro-esque look. It also features a proprietary audio processing feature called Noozxoide that is supposed to make your music sound better. Here’s further explanation:
Noozxoide Balanced X-EQ™ Processor
(Deliver balanced soundstage for each channels on the content.)
Noozxoide MaxxBass™ Processor
(Delivers the premium deeper 1 octave bassline.)
Noozxoide NogicQ™ Processor
(Delivers higher vocal definition and warm audio.)
Noozoxide Psychoacoustic II™ Processor
(Increase the speaker size and added warm attack effect on the content.)
Noozxoide LogicSurround ES™ Processor
(Create virtual surround sound for headphone or practical speakers and widen the soundstage.)
If you intend to use the application, it is recommended that you not use any 3rd party equalizers. Also, if you use Voodoo Sound, make sure to disable Noozxoide. If you’d like to give it a try, check out the application thread.

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
