The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
Zombify Your Friends with Rotten Friends
It’s not quite Halloween yet, but that’s no reason to not get into the spirit of things 10 months early. XDA Forum Member HellGames has developed a niche little app called Rotten Friends for all those who may be fans of the horror genre.
Rotten Friends is an app that allows you to transform, or zombify if you will, pictures of friends, animals, and the sorts without having to rely on software such as Photoshop. After loading your canvas with a picture, the UI gives multiple elements and images you can overlay onto the original. With a couple of drags and drops, I transformed the default image of a kitten into a horrifying creature straight out of Walking Dead.
The interface consists three main options on the top: the main menu, the graphic elements, and paint and erase. A bar at the bottom correlates with the main option chosen, and in turn, display further actions. You can save, share, and upload images through the main menu. The graphic element contains six main categories of overlays including masks, weapons and surgical tools splashed with blood, and macabre facial elements. Please do bear in mind that the free version only allows for 2 free ‘saves’ of images through the app, which we do hope will be increased in the future.
Compatible with Android versions 2.1 and newer, Rotten Friends has a limited trial version in the Play store. If you would like to check Rotten Friends out, make sure to head over to the original thread for more details.

There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
