MyAppList Now Available

qrcode

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

New Android Boot Screen Brings the Pain To Apple

boot2m

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.. . . READ ON »

Boot Animation Preview Updated

bapscreen

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 t

Superuser Updated To V2.2.1

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 de

HTC Flashlight APK

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.

Augmented Reality Navigation comes to Android

thumb.php

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 av. . . READ ON »

Superuser App Gets Refreshed

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 includ
