Run Your Favorite GreaseMonkey Scripts On Your Phone With Tampermonkey for Android

If you are familiar with GreaseMonkey and love writing your own scripts, then you will be really glad to know that XDA member _der_ has come up with a very handy application to run your scripts in your Android device. This plugin was originally available for Google Chrome, but since the dev wanted to have a more portable version of this, he decided to port it to be usable with our favorite little green robot. The dev does point out the fact that due to the slow nature of our devices, when compared to the PC counterparts, that you will need to be a bit patient and wait for Tampermonkey to finish doing its thing before you see anything out of it. Also, keep in mind that this is still in beta, so there may be a few scripts that do not run well or at all in the Android version. If this happens to be the case, please try them out either in the Chrome version or in the Chromium version. Report any feedback about these, if you wouldn’t mind.

Any and all feedback is much appreciated. Also, if you would like to share your code with the rest of the community, you will likely enrich this app as well as other’s experiences.

May be you can play a little bit with Tamermonkey and test some Userscripts.
Due to the fact that phones does not have a really fast cpu, you may have to be a little patient. 
If there are non working scripts it would be nice if you could test it with Tampermonkey for Google Chrome and Chromium too.

You can find more information in the application thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
