Recognized Developer Applications Closed Until Early 2013
We are closing the RD applications to wrap up everything up before the new year starts. As of this moment you won’t be able to apply, but we will reopen somewhere in early January.
As you might recall, we’ve made tremendous improvements to the Recognized Developer program a few months ago to increase our efficiency in processing applications. If you have any ideas or perhaps complaints (hope not!) you are welcome to PM the Developer Committee account.
If you haven’t received a response by the end of the year (especially if you have been waiting for more than a month), please PM the Developer Committee account. The program was designed by one of the DC members, but suffered from a bug in earlier stages where members didn’t receive the final outcome of the review. Those problems are all fixed now, but we have no easy way of knowing who we haven’t PMed.

But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be. Your phone's processor runs at different frequencies when you're using the device. The CPU...
