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.
What a Year–XDA Portal Turns Two!
You may not be aware, but the XDA Portal—our little news outlet—is celebrating its second birthday! From the start, the main objective of the Portal has been to serve as a virtual window into the endless supply of development here at XDA.
Our first article was posted on January 16th, 2010; and since then, we’ve been dedicated to covering content that ranges from development works, various guides and tutorials, and interviews with Recognized Developers.
Under the leadership of our new Portal Administrator and Editor-in-Chief Will Verduzco, we will be sure to keep sight of our focus of making the Portal your “insider guide” to XDA. The rest of our team consists of the following writers: Egzthunder1, ElCondor, mic_888, jasecloud4, PoorCollegeGuy, Bentenrai, conantroutman, HQRaja, ben_duder, azrienoch, samcaplat, and of course, myself. You can contact any of us if you have any tips or article suggestions. And if you have any suggestions for any particular type of content you would like to see, please send that over to Will.
Seemingly overnight, we went from 1.3 million monthly page views in February 2010 to 4.9 million this past January. In this time, we have managed to rack up more than 4,700 published articles! Going forward, we wish to raise these numbers by doing our best to provide you with the content you want to see. To all our supporters around the globe, thank you for giving us a reason to write and for making the XDA-Developers Portal the place it is today.
Here’s to a great third year! Cheers!
