Recognized Developers of XDA Usergroup Formed

You might recall several months ago we posted about a new initiative at XDA to give the valued developers of XDA additional privileges (more control over their threads, a bigger PM inbox, a custom title, and several others). We’ve now completed the process. Those that have applied should have received a PM by now. The vast majority of submissions were approved. For those that weren’t, our Developer Committee didn’t find adequate proof of development.

Again, our aim in this wasn’t to make an exclusive club of developers, but to give something back to those that spend their free time generously making ROMs, apps, and other bits of hackery to make our smartphones better. THANK YOU again to all of the developers of XDA, and also thank you to our Developer Committee team who made this all possible: Pulser_g2, NotATreoFan, timmymarsh, 12aon, Egzthunder1, JimmyMcGee, Chainfire, and Willverduzco.

If you didn’t know about this initiative and want to be considered to be a Recognized Developer, go ahead and fill out this form. You should hear back within a week from our Developer Committee crew. :)

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
