If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
Share Your Statuses on Facebook and Twitter at the Same Time with Shareboard
The constantly increasing popularity of social networking forces us poor Android users to share our statuses multiple times. But why should we spend much time Tweeting and sharing our statuses on Facebook when we can use a single application designed and developed to handle multiple social networks at the same time.
One of these application is Shareboard by XDA Senior Member anandbibek. With this application, we can easily post our statuses on Twitter or Facebook and possibly other social networks that are not yet added. Our statuses can contain both text and images. And of course, if you don’t want to use one of these services, you can disable it.
This application doesn’t run in background, so unnecessary synchronization won’t be triggered. Shareboard is free of Google Analytics, so the big brother from California can’t spy on us either. With this application, your privacy is kept intact as no statistics are collected and cached on your device—though that’s obviously not the case for when the posts make their way onto the aforementioned social media sites. Perhaps the UI isn’t quite as flashy as other social media apps, but many will favor its minimal interface.
More information about privacy and the app itself can be found in the original thread, so if you are a #Facebook and #Twiiter junkie, you should definitely go there and give Shareboard a shot.

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
