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...
Xperia Arc and Arc S Get CAMP, CM/AOKP/MIUI/ParanoidAndroid Kang
Over the last month or so, developers have been coming out with various ROM mash-up kangs. So far, we’ve brought you news on the Xperia Pro Pacman ROM and the Galaxy Ace mash up ROM. This time, it’s for the Sony Xperia Arc and Arc S.
As expected, this ROM selects some of the best features from CyanogenMod, AOKP, and ParanoidAndroid. However, XDA Recognized Developer Zackconsole has added a fourth element to this mash up—the inclusion of MIUI. So along with the goodies from the other three AOSP giants, users will have some MIUI goodies as well. The full, and gigantic, feature list includes:
Multi-switchable view either vanilla/miui/anything
SMS & MMS
Camera Recording 720p
UMS USB Connection
MIUI Music/Explorer/LBE Guard(Security)/MiuiVideo
Miui Launcher(FreeLauncher Supported)
This is definitely an interesting option for those who are tired of the usual ROMs, and want to try something new. There are a few bugs associated with the ROM. However, it’s usually something fixable and nothing overly serious. This is more than ready to be a daily driver.
