Record and Replay Touch Events with RepetiTouch

Don’t you hate the process of “grinding” in video games? For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, grinding (also known as “farming”) refers to tedious and repetitive actions that are performed in order to build up experience points, credits, or anything else within a game. Often times, these actions consist of clicking on certain onscreen items or drawing repetitive patterns on your touch screen.

Luckily, Android is far and away the most versatile and widely used mobile operating system today. By virtue of this, users can perform nearly limitless tasks on their mobile devices, and one such capability is to script repetitive actions. This is where RepetiTouch by XDA Senior Member cygery comes in.

Just as its name implies, RepetiTouch allows users to record and repeat certain touch events. This functionality is summoned with a system-wide and ever-present panel that shows record and replay buttons. With just a click of a button, you can then record and replay your repetitive tasks. You can even set the repeated action to occur on loop, in order to farm most effectively, create an infinite amount of new folders, or perform any other repetitive task.

There are two versions of the app, a free and a paid version. However, the free version is highly functional in that it supports mutlitouch recording, allows virtually unlimited recording time, offers loop mode, and pretty much packs almost everything found in the pro version except for automation app integration and a movable panel. Obviously, however, you need root access to even run the app in the first place.

You can get started by heading over to the RepetiTouch application thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. 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...
