There is only one week left to enter the LG Developer Challenge and Win Prizes, such as the LG G Pad or LG G Watch R. Last week we told you about our LG App challenge where you can submit an idea for a development that makes use of LG’s QPair SDK. Originally the contest was limited to those with a US shipping address, but after much consideration, we have removed that restriction and everyone should feel free to take part in this contest.
There are 4 days left in the first round of the XDA – LG Developer Challenge. Remember the LG Developer Challenge is a 2-week competition – your opportunity to pitch your proposal for the best LG QPair SDK app and bring it to life with a LG G Pad of your own. We’ll be awarding LG G P. . . READ ON »

Many Android enthusiasts know the name LG. LG is the maker of some Google Nexus devices and some great devices of there own, from the LG G2 and the follow up LG G3. Of course, there are many other great devices that LG makes, including tablets and watches. LG is focusing heavily on user experience. The thought is, if I have a smartphone and a tablet, can I have the same experience on both? Well LG thinks you can, that’s why they’ve developed the LG QPair. With LG QPair, users do not need to be worry about missing calls or SMSs when they are using tablets. LG QPair is an awesome feature which helps users to use their tablet and smartphones seamlessly. The LG QPair SDK is the software tool that opens APIs fo. . . READ ON »

Almost two months ago, we set out with Pebble to find three amazing apps/watch faces that developers would put together for the Pebble Watch. That contest came to a close last Friday, and while there were some really great entries who took the smartwatch and stretched it to its limits, the voting came down to three winners for the Grand Prize.
The XDA – Pebble Developer Challenge was a 3-week competition, and each person had the opportunity to pitch their proposal for the best app and bring it to life with a watch of their own. Of the 20 proposals that we selected for the second phase, the developers of the best three apps have been invited to attend the 2014 Pebble Developer Retreat in October. In addit. . . READ ON »

Back in mid-late July (gosh, that seems a long time ago now!), we announced that we had paired up with Pebble to offer developers the opportunity to #MakeAwesomeHappen, and be in with the chance of winning a trip to Mountain View, CA, to meet up with Pebble at their Annual Developer Retreat. XDA and Pebble went through every single one of the proposals sent in by developers – we had a tough time selecting the finalists – but in the end we had to whittle down 95 brilliant entries to 20. Those 20 finalists were selected based on the innovation and originality shown in their proposals.
Now it’s down to you! XDA and Pebble will each be selecting a winner, but the third winner will be selected by a vote of yo. . . READ ON »

A few weeks ago we told you about XDA partnering with Pebble for a developer challenge, and the response was amazing. We had almost 100 entrants with many different ideas and the judging on the part of Pebble and XDA was very difficult. That being said, we were able to pick 20 Round 1 winners and they are in the process of being contacted so that Pebble can send them their devices. If you were someone who entered, please check your XDA PM Inbox for a notification. As soon as they are all contacted we’ll announce them and then they will be creating their projects in the Pebble forum.
The next steps in the challenge are as follows:
Round 2 (August 15 – September 12, 2014):

Can you #MakeAwesomeHappen? Your app idea could win a Pebble and a trip to our 2nd Annual Developer Retreat in Mountain View, CA!
For those who haven’t kept up with the wearables market over the last year or so, you may not be aware of Pebble. Pebble is the smartwatch that 68,000+ people brought to life, crowdfunding a record $10.3MM on Kickstarter, and put wearable technology on the map. With a vibrant developer community and thriving ecosystem, Pebble is the platform for the best and brightest wearable apps. Pebble SDK 2 invites developers to build unique, delightful, and practical apps that push the boundaries of what smartwatches can do.

The kind folks behind the powerful media player Poweramp are no strangers to showing some serious kindness to the XDA community. For those who don’t remember, last Thanksgiving, they so generously donated two Nexus 7 tablets to a couple of lucky contest winners.
Now, the team wishes to spread some Holiday cheer by donating 25 free copies of their namesake media player. But rather than having a simple giveaway to the first responders, we figured that we’d have a little fun with a contest. After all, we have to make you work for it. To do this, we want you to tell us your most hilarious tech story. The winners will then be selected by your fellow community members.
Entering the contest is extremely simple. . . READ ON »
