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!
