This Week in Development Quick Take: AROMA and NFC – XDA TV

In today’s Quick Take of This Week in Development, Jordan takes time out of his birthday celebration to cover a couple stories of interest from the XDA Portal. Giving a nod to the most important women in anyone’s life, Jordan discussed the Top Five Apps for the Hard Working Mom.

Jordan then talks about managing files with AROMA file manager and the addition of the NFC Hardware Hacking forum. Finally, Jordan mentions our new Pro Tip series on XDA TV. All in all, this is a video you don’t want to miss!
