Run Your Apps From SD With DarkTremor App2SD for Android

Quite possibly, one of the greatest advancements in the Android development world was the ability to run apps onto the external memory. App2SD allowed users to overcome the limitation of space, which becomes apparent as games and apps require more and more memory to be stored and to run from. You are probably familiar with App2SD and more than likely, you are also aware that Froyo comes with this feature as well. However, they are limited in what they can do and allow to do. XDA member tkirton brings us Darktremor App2SD, which is like App2SD but on steroids. This app offers extended functionality such as the ability to move Dalvik cache to SD, it can protect from boot loops in case that something went wrong with the card, allows to modify the heap size of the Dalvik cache, and much more. Also, this is built to use EXT2, EXT3, and EXT4 file systems, which are native to Linux environments, thus making this more compatible with older versions of Android as well.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. If you have suggestions that could make this better, please share them with the dev.

This is Darktremor Apps2SD, a multipurpose program that primarily allows a user to execute applications created for the Android OS on their Secure Digital card (with the proper setup…more on that later). But, Darktremor Apps2SD is all about stability. The goal is to be able for all users of the Android OS to be able to take advantage of a method to run their applications from a secure digital card.

You can find more information in the 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...
