Sports Rules & News Brings Global Sports Coverage… and Rules

Two things many mobile users are always in search of are a good sports app and a rule book for their sport of choice. While there are many sports applications for users to select from, most cover only the American “big four”—hockey, (American) football, basketball and baseball. Some people perhaps want to know more about the international ping pong scene, and let’s not forget about the awesomeness to be found in both rugby and soccer. And we swear, some ping pong aficionados can be quite passionate about their sport.

To paraphrase our unnamed arch nemesis, there’s an app for that. XDA Forum Member appzinventors has released an application called Sports Rules & News. The point? To cover the 12 most popular globally recognized sports, and provide users with all their associated rules. The supported sports are: football (soccer), cricket, tennis, Formula 1, golf, rugby, basketball, baseball, badminton, volleyball, table tennis, and hockey.

The news section includes useful information such as scores from various matches, but the meat and potatoes of the application is its built-in rule book. No more Google searching looking for random rules from random sports—simply open the app, and go find it. It’s a dream come true for hardcore fans of any of these sports, especially those who like shouting at referees through televisions because that hockey hit clearly violated Rule 48 and was, in fact, a check to the head.

For more information,visit the original thread and get your sports on.

While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
