Too Many Forums on XDA? A Solution.

We know: the forum index of XDA is very long, and it’s not getting any shorter. As hot new devices come out, we want to be sure that we’re giving them a home on XDA so that you can benefit from all of the great development work that our community has to offer, and thus we are continually adding new forums. To help make the forum index more easy to navigate for you, we’ve come up with two solutions, the second of which is new and will launch on Wednesday (6/23/2010).

1. Compact view. This is only for the new forum style that is still in open beta. This view condenses the forum index and displays it without images, making it much shorter and faster-loading. This is also the version you see when you view the new forum template with a mobile device.

2. New! Current/legacy view. Starting on Wednesday, when you visit forum.xda-developers.com, you will only see “current” devices listed, which includes devices that have been released within the last few years. We’re doing this because some of the “legacy” device forums (Wallaby, Blue Angel, etc) get very little activity nowadays, so it doesn’t make sense to keep them on the index for everyone to see. If you want to see the legacy device forums, you can either 1. Hit the “Show Legacy” button at the top of the new or old template (see attached screenshot), or 2. Use the filter at the top of either template to instantly jump to a forum of your choice.

We are still supporting these older devices and other than that they won’t be listed on the forum index, nothing about your use of these forums will change. Links to the forums or to posts in the forums will still work as usual.

For those that are curious, here’s the initial list of legacy devices:

HTC Wallaby: MDA, XDA, 1010
HTC Blue Angel: MDA III, XDA III, PDA2k, 9090
HTC Himalaya & Andes: MDA II, XDA II, 2060
HTC Alpine: PDA2, XDA IIi, 2020i
HTC Magician: JAM, MDA Compact, S100
HTC Wizard: 8125, K-JAM, P4300, MDA Vario
HTC Universal: JASJAR, XDA Exec, MDA Pro
HTC Prophet: JAMin, XDA Neo, S200
HTC Atom: iPAQ rw6828, XDA Atom
HTC Apache: XV6700, PPC-6700
HTC Charmer: MDA Compact II
HTC Hermes: 8525, TyTN, MDA Vario II, JasJam
HTC Trinity: P3600
HTC Artemis: P3300, MDA Compact III
Palm Treo 750
HTC Herald: Wing, P4350
HTC Athena: Advantage X7500, MDA Ameo
HTC Elf: Touch GSM
HTC Nike: Touch Dual, MDA Touch Plus
Non-Touchscreen Windows Mobile

Update: Vogue removed from the list, so it will be listed with the “current” devices

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
