XDA Volunteer Translator List Updated

Not too long ago, we talked about a list maintained by XDA Senior Member Benkxda aimed at getting those who need app translation services in contact with willing volunteers in the forums. After all, as cool as Google Translate is, a context-aware human translation is always better than machine translation.

But let’s face it; as time goes, not every volunteer can continue devoting so much time to translation. Thankfully, Benkxda has been keeping the list updated, culling out inactive members , as well as adding a few new faces and languages to the mix. Additionally, a list of former translators is included. So if you need translation help from a user who used to offer his or her services and is now on vacation, you may want to try asking really, really nicely. Who knows what will happen?

Just as before, developers should create their own thread with intentions to translate their application and link to it from Benkxda’s translation services thread. This should only be done once the application is nearly complete in order to prevent having to ask for additional translations down the line when new features are added or existing features are modified.

Head over to the translation services thread to get started.

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work? We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
