It would seem that Google has a bug in their AOSP code that was introduced around Android 3.2, which affects how the OS handles USB Storage and can prevent write access to SD cards and USB sticks. XDA Elite Recognized Developer, Senior Moderator, and News Writer Chainfire sums up the issue in his blog post:

In the past, an app would request the “WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE” permission, which would grant write access to all external storages (user/group “sdcard_rw“). This has apparently been changed to only grant write access to the primary external storage. A second permission has been introduced called “WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE“, which would grant acces

A penny saved is a penny earned, that is unless Canada follows through with its threat to stop producing the Canadian penny. If you are like most people, when you do use cash and you get change, you often don’t like carrying it around. Some throw it in random places. 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:

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 »

It’s one thing when an Android application adds support for new versions of Android or Android devices. It’s another thing altogether when an application developer makes an application compatible with specific features on a particular Android device. And it’s even more exciting when that feature actually rocks.
For users of the Samsung Galaxy Note, there’s an application updated just for you. XDA Senior Member Volker1 has updated the Quill application with S-Pen functionality. The app also supports active pen input on the ThinkPad Tablet, HTC Jetstream, and HTC Flyer. It doesn’t end there. There are a plethora of features in addition to S-Pen support including:

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 »

Do you wear glasses? Is your vision not as good as it could be? Do you like seeing huge pictures of your friends so you are reminded of what they look like when they call? Do you have “friends” who use iPhones and brag about their awesome answer screen? Well, XDA Senior Member lowveld has a solution for you. Lowveld has created the Ultimate Call Screen HD call screen replacement. What can we say about Ultimate Call Screen HD other than it is, well, ultimate. It allows you to customize each contact’s call screen. You can select a different High Definition picture for each contact. That picture will then be displayed in full screen when he or she calls.
But that is not all. You can set up block lists to block contacts. . . . READ ON »

One cannot help but to love games on devices which make use of the sensors loaded in them. Who can forget the ever popular Teeter where you needed to balance and direct a ball through a maze filled with obstacles like holes, walls, and uneven floors? If you have not seen too many of these and are simply tired of slicing fruits and veggies and tossing birds or other cute and fluffy animals across a screen, then you should take a look at the work of XDA Forum Member FrenzyFugu. In Frenzy Fugu Fish, you are in control of a Fugu fish (hence the name) and your main objective is to try and eat all the pearls and targets on the level in a given time period.
The controls are simple as you will need to use your accelerometer to direct you. . . READ ON »

Multi-touch has become increasingly ubiquitous ever since pinch-to-zoom was added to Android’s web browser and photo gallery. It has even been incorporated into several launchers, starting with the home screen previews in HTC Sense. Now you can incorporate even more multi-touch gestures on your Honeycomb tablet with Gesture Control. Developed by XDA Forum Member StupidIdea, the application is still in beta but has a few nifty features available.
The root-level application, which installs as a simple .APK file, gives Honeycomb tablet users the ability to use multi-touch commands to perform basic tasks. Supported gestures include the following:
