QuickChange

A penny saved is a penny earned, that is unless Canada follows through with its threat to stop producing the Canadian penny.

Others unload their pockets every night into a single jar. A solution exists either way.

XDA Forum Member NickAVV offers you version 3.0 of his QuickChange application. In the words of the developer:

QuickChange … helps you keep track of how much money is in your piggy bank, or other coin-containing apparatus. It supports 7 different currencies too. It has a slick new interface, lets you track multiple jars, shows you graphs of your balance over

Barbell Loader

Math is difficult. When you are spending your time pimpin’ to the beat, walking down the street with your new la freak, with your animal print pants out of control, there is only one thing that matters for LMFAO and yourself. That fact is that you are sexy, and you know it. But how does one become so self-aware of his or her physical attractiveness? Well, it is simple—you work out.

Lifting weights takes a lot of energy and concentration so often times your mind isn’t as quick as it can be to add up the weights of the different discs you are placing on the barbell. There is no need to fear, however, my muscle head and casual weight lifting friends. XDA Forum Member somecanuck has a solution. The application Barbe. . . READ ON »

Busted Volume Rocker on Android Phone? Here’s a Solution

StatusVolume

Recently our good friend and Member Advocate Admin egzthundar1, wrote an article for people with Windows Phones with broken volume rockers. While this certainly is a great application, I think we can all admit, that while this helps Mango users, it doesn’t help the over 9000 people who use Android. But fear not my green robot friends rocking Honeycomb and above, XDA Senior Member kevdliu created the Status Bar Volume Control Application. This simple application allows you to change the system volumes in a status bar notification. The operation is simple and described by kevdliu as such:

The four buttons on the notification mutes the selected volume, lowers it by one, raises it by one, and displays the sys. . . READ ON »

Sense 4 Locks and Clocks for EVO 3D

sense4lock

It seems that HTC has created quite a bit of hype recently with their release of the HTC One series and the recently introduced EVO 4G LTE (an One variant for Sprint). Despite there being some ports with functioning Sense 4 frameworks, the simplistic and cleaner look of Sense 4 is, at this point, just a long term objective for Sensation and EVO 3D owners. Much like it has been historically on XDA-Developers, the road to Sense ports is always long, but there are people who will jump to the occasion of trying to come up with “fixes” for the cravings of the masses.

XDA Forum Member Will972 has recently released a clone of the Sense 4 clock and lockscreen only available for the EVO 3D, and for certain ROMs . . . READ ON »

Samsung Galaxy Ace

Not all phones are at their optimal performance and battery life out of the box. Even with a heavily tweaked ROM or kernel, some phones require just a little extra boost.

Open Source and Imitations–Samsung Releases ICS-Sprinkled Gingerbread SGS I9000, But Why?

icecream

It seems that Samsung has made quite a stir recently thanks to several recently released updates and firmware leaks (albeit they are mostly coming from carriers) to most of their lineup, going back all the way to the original Galaxy S. Thanks to the efforts of XDA Forum Member Przekret and Recognized Developer Faryaab, we now have access to the very latest firmware that was released by Samsung for the original Samsung Galaxy S. The new firmware comes loaded with a ton of updates, bug fixes, a new kernel, a new radio, and most importantly, it will update your device to 2.3.6 (officially anyways).

To make this even more juicy, Faryaab has provided, in his own thread, a method to root this firmware before you even l. . . READ ON »
