The Rebirth of XDA-Marketplace
Not too long ago, there was a project going on at XDA (not official, but member driven). Basically, it allowed XDA members to host their apps in a single place and as such would give other members exposure to all the wonderful projects and apps that take root on xda-developers. Unfortunately, due to lack of support, this project was discontinued. However, XDA member Cyclonezephyrxz7 has decided to pick this up from its ashes, dust it off, and give it a go once again. This time the whole concept will be redone from scratch. Meaning that all the graphics, coding, server space, etc will be re-worked and released as a whole new project.
The devs need some help as the load for this is a bit too much for just one or two people. So, if you have the necessary skills to help in this up and coming project, please visit the thread and get in touch with the dev.

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates. However, the phones did not pick up as big a response as Google hoped. Now, as per a report by The Economic Times, it appears that Google is rethinking their strategy towards Android One in India.
