Welcome to the Refreshed XDA Portal!
A new year, a new Portal Admin, and now a new look to our Portal to round it all out! This refresh, several months in the making, is tuned for speed. It integrates more white space than the previous design as to provide a cleaner, more open feel. We now have better control over filtering content categories and features. Best of all, the Portal acts as a true portal by letting you login to the widget on the right and see your subscribed forums, threads, plus a PM preview box, without having to go into the forums. Brilliant! If it doesn’t work right away for you, make sure you log out of the forums and log back in, then go back to the Portal. Hopefully this new widget encourages you to make the Portal a hub of your XDA activity.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be making the new design even better with more features and further increases in performance. And of course, bugs do happen despite our testing. If you find any bugs, make us aware of them in the Portal Refresh Bug Report and Feature Request thread.

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta.
