One of the many types of apps available for Android are soundboards, which are in essence recollections of sounds from different sources like movies, games, TV shows, among others. XDA member XaviorPenguin has just released the second version of his own soundboard. The dev thought that Nintendo’s ever popular fighting game Killer Instinct was famous enough to deserve its own. Most of the sounds  from the first game are in there including the different levels of combo chains, character names, and the ever popular “C-C-C-Combo Breaker!”

Very simple UI and good quality of sound bites, make this app a must have for old fans of the game.

Searching the Android Market, I had found Soundboards for various games and movies and actors/actresses. I found one that wasn’t available…so, I decided to attempt to make one.

I, with the help of a soundboard tutorial, created the Killer Instinct Soundboard.
As far as I know, this is complete, for me. I may later add more sounds as I find them but for now, the current sounds are set in stone.

MyPlayer was one of my favorite application back in the days of Hulu support, but even without this, users can still enjoy some BBC shows. The popular Windows Mobile application has now gone Android thanks to XDA member FryWalker, and it still keeps some of the good features we all love, without the bugs we all have grown to hate.

This is a light-weight application that provides access to the BBC iPlayer service directly – eliminating the requirement for a (flash-enabled) mobile browser.
myPlayer is also available on the Windows Mobile platform
** This application requires an Internet connection based within the UK **

Features:
> Extensive BBC iPlayer integration
> Fully featured programme search
> High quality downloads for offline viewing?
> Live TV and Radio
> Browse by iPlayer category
> Automatic stream quality (3G or wifi)
> Manual stream quality by preference

Having the greatest App stock is becoming increasingly important for people that want to have a good rep in a forum, and this new application helps by making the list for you. The application was released a few days ago, and its a very simple and free concept. The application goes through your installed application and makes a list of them so you can easily upload them to a forum, blog, or anywhere in the world.

In the quest to teach myself the Android API, I just published my first Android App to the market.
MyAppsList – let’s you generate a list of all your installed applications so you can share it on a forum, web page, etc.
It’s a work in progress and I’m still working on it. Let me know what you think
Market url: market://search?q=com.boots.MyAppsList

If your in the mood to bring your application stock pile to the forums then give this a try.

Are you one of those people who like to show their emotions out in public? Well, this boot screen sends a very clear message. The boot created by XDA member C0mpu13rFr34k is for people that have a passionate hate for Apple and their products. This boot screen comes with another animation, but since that is a bit obscene, we will let you look at that yourself.

Doesen’t work for:
Legendroid
Cronos Droid 1.x but it works for 2.x
All vanilla and non-Sense ROMs

Check out the other images in the boot screen thread.

While looking for something to grab his attention, XDA member htc(hot-taco-cheese) created a list of addicting games for the Droid Incredible was created. The list started by XDA member zerf, and his list are merely composed of nine games, most of them free.

The games list has just about everything, but I would like to add, Tower Defenses is your best bet for a super addictive game.

here are a few that I play. Some free some paid
air control beta
classic simon
homerunbattle3d
sniper vs sniper
super ko boxing 2
heavy gunner
lets golf
archipelago (which is like galaxir)
Edit:
SpeedX 3d

Read the list and add your games over in the game thread.

Boot Animation Preview Updated

July 12, 2010   By:

Having an awesome boot screen on Android devices is becoming a very hard task with all these available packages, but this Windows application is here to help. Made by XDA member camalot, this application sets out to give you access to your boot files, allowing you to see the animation. This way, you’ll know what looks the coolest before you load it all up.

This is a tool for windows that will allow you to preview a boot animation (bootanimation.zip) file before applying it to your device. If you have the SDK in your environment path, it will also allow you to apply the boot animation to the device. I have tested about 50 boot animations and only had 2 that wouldn’t load, and they didn’t load because there was an invalid line in the desc.txt file.
Requirements

  • .NET Framework 4.0
  • Windows XP or later
  • Android SDK added to Environment path (to set the boot animation on the device, if you don’t have it in the path, you just cant set it from the app)
  • Boot Animation files to open (you can pull one off your device @ /system/media/bootanimation.zip)

You can download this preview tool in the application thread.

Superuser Updated To V2.2.1

July 11, 2010   By:

su-2.1-1

This tool is something for Android users who want to do some changes to their devices, and want an easier way of doing so. The application, created by XDA member ChainsDD, has become very popular very fast, and now we have a new update that is set to bring some good and well deserved changes.

I got tired of the old, quite unreadable, Superuser app that’s being used in most every build, so I refreshed it entirely. Some of the new features include:

  • Each permission is shown by it’s name, rather than it’s UID
  • Many translations (Spanish, German, Czech, Greek, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian and Danish (Some are full translations, some are only partial))
  • Optional notifications
  • A dialog that shows details of each permission including access times
  • A much clearer request window.
  • Permissions are removed when an app is uninstalled to prevent another app from possibly getting permissions you don’t want it to have.
  • A bunch of work behind the scenes to smooth things out.

(New for 2.2.1)

  • Install fixed. Will clear old permissions, but it’s the last time I’ll delete your permissions.
  • Fixed AndroidManifest to allow install on cupcake.
  • Russian translation thanks to stari4ek

There are 2 versions, one for cupcake/donut, one for eclair/froyo. Pick the one appropriate for your firmware and flash via recovery mode

To try it out on your device, visit the application thread.

HTC Flashlight APK

July 10, 2010   By:

Flashlight

Having a flashlight on your device is becoming a necessity for just about all Windows and Android phone owners. Well, it seems XDA member JaydenR found the need for this on his Droid Incredible. So, he extracted the application from Android 2.2 build on the HTC Desire. This application does not need root access to use, so you simply need to install it and find your way around your dark house.

This is the Flashlight apk from the 2.2 Froyo Desire rom. No root is needed and it uses the screen instead of the camera led’s.
Still it’s pretty sweet and looks awesome.
Credit to udK who dropped this rom. All I did was pull it and post it.
Now to answer some questions:
Why do I need this?
You don’t.
Will this break my phone?
Don’t know. Depends what you use it for.
Will this void my warranty?
Its a non root stock HTC apk
Will it help me find my long lost brother?
Who knows
Can I get this from the market?
Nope
How do I install this?
Log off, turn your computer off and please walk away. Seriously

Blind your friends with this APK file, which can be found in the application thread.

If you’ve been impressed with the recent augmented reality apps for Android but have not found much use for them, you might want to take a look at Wikitude Drive.

Posted by XDA forum member djbrutale, Wikitude Drive is the first navigation system based on augmented reality for your Android device!

Developed by Mobilizy Research & Development group in Salzburg, Wikitude Drive is a light weight navigational system and works by overlaying point to point directions on a camera-view – without the need for maps.  The app also provides the option to toggle to a traditional 3D map view by pressing the screen.

Currently only available in the US, and supporting the metric system, Wikitude Drive was available for download in the Market for beta testing but the download limit has now been reached.

A few XDA members appear to have been lucky enough to participate in the beta testing, so to join the discussion and keep up to date with progress, visit the forum thread.

Superuser App Gets Refreshed

May 19, 2010   By:

su-2.1-1

So XDA forum member ChainsDD decided it was time the original superuser app written back in 2008 got a new look and some new features.

Originally written by XDA member Koush, the Superuser app allows specified applications to get root when authorised. The program works with any application that uses su – no special code or support needs to be written.

ChainsDD has given the Superuser app a complete refresh making it more easy to read showing each permission by it’s name rather than it’s UID.

Originally posted by ChainsDD:

  • Many translations (Spanish, German, Czech, Greek, French, Italian, Dutch and Danish).
  • Optional notifications.
  • A dialog that shows details of each permission including access times.
  • A much clearer request window.
  • Permission are removed when an app is uninstalled to prevent another app from possibly getting permissions you don’t want it to have.
  • A bunch of work behind the scenes to smooth things out.

There are 4 versions covering Cupcake, Donut and Eclair Android builds and ROM types.

To download and for more information, check out the application thread.
