Unofficial XDA TV App Now Optimized for Phones Too!
Earlier in the week, we brought you news of a particularly useful tablet app by XDA forum member nathanpc that provided you with an XDA TV experience catering towards large-screened devices. However, several users requested that a phone-optimized version also be released.
Luckily, the developer has now released a smartphone-optimized version. Featuring the same content and a similar interface, this application allows you to access your favorite mobile-hacking videos from the comfort of your Android-powered smartphone. In the words of the developer:
Now you can have all the XDA TV videos wherever you go using this application. Now on your phone, if you have a tablet you should get it here
