What Developer are YOU Most Thankful for? Win a Nexus 7 for Yourself and Your Favorite Dev!

Today is Thanksgiving! To those celebrating the holiday, we at XDA would like to extend wishes for a day stuffed with much food, family, relaxation, and most importantly, mobile development.

Thanks to the dedicated developers who make up the backbone of this site, we are able to enjoy our mobile devices in ways never envisioned by their original creators. We would like to hear from you regarding which developer here on XDA has made the biggest impact in your life.

In order to help us give thanks where its due (our hardworking developers), the kind folks at MaxMP (creators of the extremely popular media player Poweramp) have provided us with two Nexus 7 tablets. We will be giving them away to one lucky developer and one lucky community member. This contest is part of Max’s efforts to say thank you for the strong support: 15+ million downloads and 1 million paid users.

How do I win a Nexus 7 for myself and my favorite developer?

Simple. First, visit the contest thread. Next, give us your story between now and next Thursday! We want to hear about what XDA Developer (see what I did there?) and what development work(s) have had the biggest impact in helping you better enjoy your mobile device(s). Feel free to get as creative and detailed as you’d like, but remember that these stories must actually be true. Also, make sure you link to your favorite developer’s user profile in your contest entry post.

Now for the technicalities: This contest will run from today, November 22, until next Thursday, November 29. Due to previous difficulties we’ve encountered when mailing internationally, this contest will be open to US residents (or those with proxy US shipping addresses) only. The winning entry will be selected by myself and the rest of the XDA Administration team. We will be looking at which posts receive the most “thanks,” but that is certainly not the only criteria for winning. Finally, since each member can only have one “favorite” developer, each community member is allowed at most one entry. Those with multiple entries will be immediately disqualified.

Thank you for your contest entries and for being a part of the community! Good luck! And while you’re at it, be sure to visit the Poweramp website. For those looking to jump on the Poweramp bandwagon, Max will be having a Black Friday deal from Friday through Sunday for those in the US, Canada, and UK! The discounted pricing for the full version unlocker can be found in the Google Play store. And as always, you can find the trial in the Play store, as well.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
