Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

Runnymede Port For The EVO 4G
Looks like a good month to have an EVO 4G. Yesterday, we posted an article regarding a port of the latest Sense 3.5 rom to the Desire HD and the Desire S, which came from the unreleased HTC Runnymede. After having worked on the original build from XDA Recognized Developer capychimp, XDA Recognized Developer eVoKINGS has successfully ported this new build to the HTC EVO 4G. This build is by far a final one, but so far it seems that it comes loaded with a “real” version of Sense 3.5 and it also comes loaded with Android 2.3.5 as a rom base. Much like it was the case for the Bliss port that we spoke about last week, the current project (as it is less than 24 hours old), still has a lot of broken options such as wifi, inability to mount the SD card, broken wallpaper previews, no cameras, and last but not least rather low storage space right after flashing (some people have reported about 40 MB left without installing a single app). On top of that, if you were looking forward to the Quick Launcher widget from the Bliss build, it seems that you will not be getting that either or at least not until someone brings it into this build (currently being worked on).
If you don’t mind the aforementioned bugs and would like to test this, please help out the EVO community and leave good feedback on bugs, so that the devs working on this will have a better shot at making this fully usable.
This rom is based on Runnymede WWE ruu
0.82.401.1 android 2.3.5

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
