Xposed Framework 2.2 Brings Module Repo and 4.3 Support
We’ve talked quite a bit about the the Xposed Framework recently. And that’s with good reason, as Xposed allows for an unprecedented amount of safe and easily reversible modification that would otherwise require extensive and burdensome APK modification. Thankfully, XDA Recognized Developer rovo89 (with help from Recognized Contributor Tungstwenty and others) created Xposed, allowing us to make the changes that we need at runtime instead of dealing with APK decompilation and smali editing.
Since Xposed’s initial appearance, we’ve seen the framework progress with a better installer, various bugfixes, and whatnot. However, there was still one fundamental piece missing: an integrated module discovery experience. Luckily, this has now been rectified, as Xposed Installer now features a module repository, which can help you discover and download new modules, as well as make sure that the modules you have installed are fully updated. The latest update also provides compatibility with Android 4.3.
Head over to the framework thread or simply update Xposed through the Xposed installer to get up to speed with the latest update. If you wish to browse the repo from the comfort of your web browser, you can do that too at the official Xposed Repo site.[Thanks to Tungstwenty for the heads up.]

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
