Official XDA Premium Android App Released!
For a while now, we’ve been working on a premium version of the extremely popular XDA Android App (which has been downloaded half a million times). The premium version, now on sale for just $0.99, removes the ads, plus brings the following enhancements that the free app does not have:
+ Ability to collapse top bar to maximize screen real estate
+ Access to Legacy forums
+ Ability to add forum shortcuts to your Android homescreen for super quick access to your favorites
+ Custom XDA color scheme (changeable to default through Settings)
+ Choose whether to land on first post, last post, or first unread post within a given thread
+ Bug fixes to enhance speed
If you want to try it out (and if you hate it, Android Market lets you get a full refund within 15 minutes), search the market for “XDA Premium” or here’s the direct link.
