Right-Click Android Tools for Ubuntu

It’s no secret that Android is a Linux-based operating system. It stands to reason that ADB and the other Android SDK tools just feel more at home running on Linux. Many developers, ROM cooks and power users choose Ubuntu to run these tools because of its ease of use and low learning curve.

If you are a developer or power user running Ubuntu, XDA Recognized Developer lithid-cm has created an invaluable collection of Nautilus scripts that allow you to preform several crucial tasks with a simple right-click. This makes processes like signing APKs and running scripts as root quite simple. There are currently five right-click scripts to accomplish tasks such as compressing and signing multiple packages or compiling packages.

If these scripts could be of use to you, head to the release thread and install them. Don’t forget to thank lithid-cm, and be sure to check the thread regularly for updates to the toolkit.

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...
