You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
Quickly Share to Twitter and Other Apps with Social Notification
We’ve all encountered one at some point, those people who are compelled to share every single moment of his or her day on Twitter. Whether it’s the content of their sandwich or the fact that they just got on a bus, some people just have to Tweet about it. If you, like XDA Forum Member videtonator, are one of these people, this application might be just what you’re looking for.
Social Notification will allow to share whatever is on your mind, directly from the notification tray of your Android device. The app creates an ever present notification that opens up a text box for sharing your thoughts to not only Twitter, but any other application capable of receiving shared text such as Facebook, Gmail, Messaging, and so on. As the app was designed primarily with Twitter in mind, there are also options like sending a direct message and URL shortening via bit.ly. You don’t even need to actually share the text to shorten a link, which is handy.
The main benefit of the application is obviously that you don’t need to stray far from the application you were previously using to send text elsewhere, making this much more useful than simply an ever present Twitter updater. Check out the application thread if you think this might be of use to you.

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
