As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
We’re Closing a Bunch of Legacy Forums on XDA
So that we can best moderate forums of newer devices, XDA is soon going to close (yes, close) a handful of old, legacy forums. This will happen on September 5, 2012. While these forums will be closed for posting, they will still be completely accessible in a read-only state.
Our criteria for closing forums was post activity: All of the forums in the below list have seen fewer than 8 posts in the past 30 days. And even with such a low level of post activity, these legacy forums attract a fair amount of spam. By closing them, we allow our moderators to focus on the many forums on XDA that are bustling with activity, instead of having to worry about cleaning spam in old forums to which very few still contribute.
