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.

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...
Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and here are our top picks for this week. ...
