Unofficial XDA Portal RSS App for Windows 8

Windows 8 packs a lot of differences from Windows 7. The absent start menu is perhaps the most noticeable, and many consider it to be a misstep for those not lucky enough to be on a touch screen device. However, one of the better features of Windows 8 is the incorporation of an app store, which allows users to more easily obtain applications in a manner similar to Android, Mac OS, iOS, and of course most distros of Linux. Now, there is an app for Windows 8 devices that gives you quick access to the latest and greatest on the XDA Portal.

XDA Forum Member kuartz developed a quick and simple application that gives Windows 8 users quick access to the latest content on the XDA Portal. It goes without saying that this is one of our favorite Windows 8 apps developed so far (wink, wink). It really is a pretty simple application that’s easy to use. It is important to note, however, that this third-party and not an official XDA app.

To install, users simply enter the Windows App Store, find the application and install it. A tile gets automatically placed on the start menu. Then, users can click on the icon and the latest articles and XDA TV videos will be right there for your enjoyment. Click on one of the article tiles and it’ll open right up in the app. So far, the only bug found has been that XDA TV videos aren’t viewable like they are in web browsers. So if you see a video you gotta see, just head to the Portal itself to view them.

For a link to the app in the Windows Market and for more details, check out the original thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
