Teach Noobs New Tricks With “Let Me Android That For You”

Often seen throughout the interwebs, are people that don’t quite comprehend the idea of the “search” button. Here on XDA, we often see members asking the same questions that have been answered, time and time again. The general response to these questions can be as tame as “please search before posting” to as harsh as “you %*@#%, cant you read!?” This kind of response is usually given several times before someone volunteers the helpful answer. But what if you could be snarky and yet helpful at the same time?

Now there is Let Me Android That For You, it will generate lmgtfy link, bit.ly links (so people can’t see where are you linking to) and copy them directly to your clipboard and you can directly share the link to Twitter, Facebook, Messages, Email and many more.

XDA member Quacktop has taken “Let Me Google That For You” and transformed it into an android friendly app called “Let Me Android That For You”. If you have not used LMGTFY, now is your chance to get familiar with it. This program gives you the opportunity to demonstrate just how Google search is used. All you have to do is type in a question, and let the app generate a link to share your findings. This link is no ordinary search link, mind you. Upon visiting the link, the user is taken to an interactive Google search, complete with step by step instructions on how to search. After the short demonstration, the user is taken to a list of links directing them to possible answers to their question.

For more information on how to teach nOObs new tricks, visit the original thread or download the app in the Android Marketplace.

XPrivacy for Android Lollipop – XDA Xposed Tuesday

Have you ever been on the Google Play Store and saw an app that you wanted to try, but the sheer amount of permissions put you off? Why does a LED Color app need access to my calendar? Sometimes app developers tell you that it’s because of the ads. However, other times, apps don’t explain why they are spying on your text messages.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team. The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion.   What...
