Pinch to Zoom for Any Device Available Soon

Are you jealous that the only WM device that can replicate the multi-touch ability of the iPhone is the HD2? Do you have issues while trying to zoom in on your favorite pictures while using HTC Album? XDA member OndraSter brings us the answer to your prayers. Although it isn’t yet released (but will be soon), this app/driver will enable multi-touch capability on pretty much any WM device with a touchscreen. The dev is currently ironing out a few kinks left and even though he will release it sometime next week, he has released a video showing that this is very much the real thing (no camera tricks, no gimmicks).

Testing and developing device is being used TMOUS HTC Touch Pro 2. No, this isn’t fake using zoombar, this is real thing. Oh and I used Opera 9.7 from TMOUS LEO 2.13 ROM I think .
It should work in theory in any application. It took me about 4 hours to fixup Opera in order to find out, that Album uses different stuff, with Album and other apps I’ll play later this week.

I will provide download and all other support later this week once I fix up last few things. But main functionality is up and running quite fine.

Thanks for watching and let me create one more free post for some stuff (list of supported apps, …)

You can find more information on the development thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
