XDA Launches New Set of Forums for App Developers

There’s so much stuff happening on XDA that it’s sometimes tough to get a handle on it all. Obviously we have root tools and a bevy of ROMs, along with all the related conversation. However, we also have people discussing specs of upcoming devices, talking about what cases provide the best protection, providing community tech support (in practice shaming online efforts by phone manufacturers), posting screenshots of their home screens, and even just letting loose in our off-topic forum. And for the past several years, some of the most popular forums on XDA have been populated with developers discussing the challenges of building apps and then releasing their creations to the community. This is especially evident by the popularity of our Android Apps and Games forum.

We’re not sure if there are any (other) great communities out there for app developers to converse about things like development tools, prototyping, analytics, monetization, testing, security, localization, education, etc. But we do know that the XDA was missing a central hub for all of that. There is obviously much related discussion spread through several general or OS-specific forums and even in the device-specific app forums. But there has never been an organized set of forums that app developers could call their own to help them be better app developers. Today, we’re changing that with our new set of App Developer Forums.

It’s still early and the forums have generally sparse content, so we’re asking anyone that has something to contribute pertaining to app development (tutorials, guides, tips, etc) to please make some posts in the new forum so that everyone can benefit from you knowledge. If you’re not an app developer (or an aspiring app developer), please do not post in this forum.

If you have any specific feedback on how we can make our new App Dev Forums more useful, please send a PM to AppDeveloperAdmin. In the mean time, check out the new App Developer Forums!

Hi Locker to Help You With Lockscreen Headache

The lockscreen is a part of the OS that we see hundreds of times every day, whether we're using Android or iOS. The look of the lockscreen depends on the Android version, device manufacturer or ROM chef. In short, it differs for almost every user. Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989. Hi Locker can be found both on the Play store and...

Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them.

Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...

OnePlus DR-1 Quadcopter Drone Available for Purchase

OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
