Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
XDA Portal: What Would You Like to See Improved?
As you might know, the last couple of months, a lot of changes have taken place to the XDA Portal. We have re-vamped the portal and website with a new, modern look. We added the vote-to-frontpage system, the star system, a steady stream of news, and a lot more. We have been brainstorming on how to improve the portal, to make it even better, more user-friendly and professional. And while we came up with some nice ideas — which will be added soon — we figured it would be great to have your opinion about the portal!
As the end-user, you can probably tell us exactly what you like, and what you dislike about the portal. Maybe you get annoyed at certain articles, or certain technical weaknesses of the site. Or maybe you have ideas on how to improve the content, to make the portal even better. No matter what, every comment is really appreciated!
We started a new thread in the About XDA section. Your opinion really counts, so make sure to join the discussion there. Any idea that can improve the function of the portal, will be taken into consideration. A concluding report, including the best ideas, will be published soon.
You can post your opinion in the ideas thread.

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
