Use Accelerometer for Any Application on the Xperia X2

XDA member MonsterMash was pretty fed up with the inability to use the accelerometer included in the Xperia X2 as the phone only allowed certain apps to use this feature. The dev decided to take action and created X2AccelerometerUtility for this device. Basically, the app will allow the user to tell the device which apps are to take advantage of this by allowing the listing of the apps that will use rotation. The app also allows the user to turn the accelerometer on and off completely, just in case.

The dev mentions that the app may work for other devices as well, but that needs testing. So, if you are up for it, take it for a spin (no pun intended) and make sure that you leave some feedback.

Hi everyone,
i made this little application to menage the accelerometer on the SonyEricsson Xperia x2.
As you surely know, on the x2 accelerometer works only for a limited number of applications. And in most device, it’s simply disabled at all…

With this app you can:

  • Enable / Disable accelerometer
  • Select the applications you want to rotate using the accelerometer

You can find more information in the application thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
