If you are looking to try out a real tuned radio app, rather than a streaming app, take a look at XDA forum member mikereidis‘ Spirit FM Radio app.
Like the MIUI and CM FM apps, it is derived from the Code Aurora FM app, although the dev appears to have made some more extensive mods than the aforementioned.
Spirit FM Radio is currently in beta and requires Android version 2.1. or higher. On unsupported phones, it should go into an emulator mode to allow the UI to be explored.
The app has support for starting and stopping audio when a phone call is initiated or answered and also features RDS data support on TO FM chip based phones. The XDA dev has stated that he hopes to add RDS support for Broadcom based devices in the fu. . . READ ON »

If you are like many Android users, you probably access the Settings section of your device an awful lot. Everything important for us is in there such as brightness, wireless network setup, accounts and sync, and even general information about your device, kernel and more. However, the interface itself is simple text with no flavor to it, and just putting shortcuts in your homes screens doesn’t cut it either. With this in mind, XDA member beworker created Quicker Settings, which basically is a GUI that resembles the home screen where all the settings are located. You can rearrange them as you wish and easily use many of them as toggle switches. It also features descriptions for several of the numerous s. . . READ ON »

Keeping track of things in life can be a hassle, particularly your cars statistics, expenses, and anything related to repairs (if you are not into car modding anyways). Our Android devices seem to be here to solve all of these issues with a bit of help from people like XDA member Fasst2001. The dev has created an app called DriverDairy, which as its name suggests, will allow you to keep track on everything that is related to your car. You can record things such as fueling, maintenance, and repair logs, save part numbers for things that you may buy for your car (oil filters, spark plugs, etc), add as many cars as you want to keep track of all of them, export data into .csv format (interesting as you can use Excel to plot co. . .

We all remember the good old Activesync for Windows Mobile. A simple and very effective sync program to keep your device, data, and files synced with your computer. Nowadays, things have evolved a bit as most syncing of our important data is done via web, particularly for Android devices. This new sync app, XDA member kovalevfm will allow you to sync files and folders by using Dropbox as your storage. You can utilize your Dropbox account to sync between multiple devices and best of all, it will do all the syncing by itself. The app has a built in scheduler, which is fully configurable and will allow you to set the time at which you would like to sync your files. This is particularly useful for people with slow mobile c. . . READ ON »

Yet another concept for a classic game taken to our Android smartphones. The Whack-a-(insert what you want to whack) is a natural born enemy to most touchscreen devices, so if you install this game, just make sure that you keep the device away from small children. XDA member cubewalker‘s Popies basically is a clone of the whack-a-mole game, but in this case, you are popping up aliens that are coming from the ground. Each time you smash one of these cute little space invaders, you may be rewarded with money. Once you collect enough, you will be able to get some upgrades like a more powerful hammer. The game play is rather smooth and graphics are a surefire way of pleasing the kid inside you (and the ones running . . . READ ON »

Word games are as popular as the day is bright these days. Crossword puzzles, scrabble, hang-man, and many others have been people’s favorite means of entertainment during trips and long periods of waiting for a good part of the last half a century. Now, with the advent of gaming in our devices, these pastimes have gotten even more popular than before. However, one that you do not hear too often is a game of anagrams. For those of you not aware, anagrams are basically all the words than can be spelled from the letters of a single word. The thing about this game is that you must use all the letters of the original word or else it doesn’t count. Playing this is fun, and playing this against someone else and agai. . . READ ON »
