Windows Phone Device Manager Updated to 184.108.40.206, Open As Public Beta
A few days ago, XDA Senior Moderator imfloflo updated what looks like the coolest program the Windows Mobile side of XDA-Developers (get it, this side of the Mississippi…heh). It’s called Windows Phone Device Manager and you can check it out by following this link right here .
The changelog for version 220.127.116.11 consists of:
Full access to apps isolated storage
Show toast notification when an action requires to launch TouchXperience
As well as being a Public Release. Now, this may not look very impressive, but I dare ya to read the changelogs from versions 18.104.22.168 up to the most recent shown update, 22.214.171.124. I’ve seen shorter novels. Also, sadly, this isn’t the fully updated changelog. The only place to find that would be to follow the links to the Touch Xperience website and check out their updated changelogs there. That’s also where you’ll find the download links. The 126.96.36.199 release is public for anyone to try, but the fully updated 188.8.131.52 is still for donors only (sadface). If you want to check out some screenshot goodness and even a few review videos, check out the 2nd post. It’s all there.
The list of phones supported can be found on the thread as well and it seems to be most of the Windows Phones available right now. I have an Android phone so I can’t test this personally (another sadface) but if you happened to be one of the people who have a Windows Phone and felt bold enough to experiment, we’d love to hear your comments on what it’s like. If you’re one of the generous donors who get to test the fully updated 184.108.40.206 private beta, we’d love to hear from you as well.

From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Here in the digital XDA newsroom, we spend our days pouring over an average of 2,500 news items and forum threads every 24 hours. Only the most timely and interesting bits survive the editing process, but the portal's front page still sees weekly counts in excess of 100 posts. This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following the news cycle isn't your full-time job. However, the tech world is vast, and the information must flow. With this in mind, please...
