Master the Solar System with the Planets App

Whether its Lightsabers and Jedis or Vulcans and the Enterprise, or something more realistic like comets, the cosmos fascinate a large number of people. And why not? The sheer vastness and mysterious aura of outer space has an irresistible pull that always leaves you wanting more. While some people go to observatories or hop on rockets to sate their thirst for stellar knowledge, there is a more feasible way to do so.

This method is in the form of Planets by XDA Junior Member AMQTech. The Planets app provides you a plethora of facts and statistics regarding, yes you guessed it, planets. With an intuitive and simplistic interface, Planets lets you learn a significant amount about the solar system in layman terms, proving helpful  as well as preventing you from going over to the dark side of the Force. It does this by offering information for all the major objects in our solar system, and packaging this information into an easy-to-navigate and user-friendly application.

Head on over to the Planets application thread to get started on your space journey, but keep in mind that the app does not cover the Death Star just yet.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
