Real Life Trolling Made Easier with SMSBomb
We have all done a little trolling here and there. Whether it’s heckling a new member about not using the search feature, disagreeing with someone’s opinion on a device, or just having a good time in a ridiculous thread, there’s a time and a place to let the inner troll in all of us out to play. However as stated previously, those places are shrinking.
With that in mind, XDA Senior Member trter10 has made an application using MIT-adopted Android App Inventor that will send mass texts. Not one text to many people, mind you, but many texts to one person. Why is this application useful? It isn’t. However, it can bring about a lot of harmless fun if you use it right.
The interface is simple, write out a text, choose a contact, and you can choose whether to send that text once or up to ten times at once. This makes it very easy to ask someone if they’re angry enough times to actually make them angry. While the name of the game is making people angry, do remember to use a little courtesy. For instance, if there’s someone you know that has to pay for every text they receive, you obviously don’t want to use the app on them. There’s a fine line between being funny and being rude. Also, in some countries spam texting is illegal, so be sure to check your local laws first to assure that you aren’t doing something that could get you in trouble.

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates. However, the phones did not pick up as big a response as Google hoped. Now, as per a report by The Economic Times, it appears that Google is rethinking their strategy towards Android One in India.
