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!

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.

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.

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...
