Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wince6 Paint / Draw / Photo Editing Free Apps
After a member asked for any good applications for painting /drawing on Windows Mobile devices, XDA member tekknogenius, who by the way is one of the oldest members around, decided to share two free programs to paint/draw: nfPencil and nfCanvas, both apps are from the same developer and are free tools. It has all the standard tools (color, brushes, effects, eraser, …) but the coolest feature is the layer support (only 2), that gives a good control over the editing process. The drawback is it’s memory footprint of 2.5MB, but it’s worth it.

nfPencil or nfCanvas
Look for Mobile Painting (cannot miss it really)
There is a QVGA and a VGA version of nfCanvas2 (hover over links to see program name in status bar)
Below nvcanfas section is the section for nfpencil (sketch program, with different paper textures, very nice)
FYI the site is in Japanese, but the software is in english LOL.
Very good software, even has layers…
Uploaded them here since I was feeling kind LOL, but you may still want to visit the site because I think there is a manual there (but it may be in Japanese) and some other stuff that may be of interest.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things. The SlimRoms GitHub repos are getting updated with some major changes showing up. Most notably, some projects are getting a new 5.1 branch: lp5.1! A new, revamped and open source website is also in the works, with a look inspired by material design. We also got a tip about an...
