Read XDA Portal Like a Boss with Unofficial XDA Reader

The XDA Portal is a place where you can find some of the latest mobile development news. Our team spends hours searching for topics and letting you know about what’s going on here at XDA. This is why we are delighted to present an application to more easily access all of the Portal news on your Android device.

XDA Recognized Developer EatHeat wrote a handy application to read the news feed from the XDA Portal. This app is light, fast, and offers a lot of features such as loading an image and text in both the list and the detailed views, showing the 10 latest posts from the Portal, and the ability to swipe from within detail view to proceed to the next news item.

The unofficial XDA Reader app features the ubiquitous Holo UI, so the app’s visuals are top notch. The app can also be themed with one of four built-in themes, allowing you to change the look within seconds. Themes can even be previewed without restarting the application. With this app, reading the XDA Portal will be more enjoyable and you won’t miss anything important.

If you are looking for an application to read our work, make your way to the original thread and give XDA Reader a shot.

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...
