Revive Old Times with Pong with Multipong

Video games have been around for nearly a century. They are deeply embedded into the fabric of society and are not going anywhere anytime soon. One of the most iconic exponents of the entire video game world is none other than Pong. This game, which was created in 1972, was the precursor to what it...

Tomi File Manager Receives Substantial Update

The vast world of something as simple as file managers has evolved substantially since the long gone days of Windows Mobile. Our current file managers do so much more than show us with pretty graphics where our stuff is located. With the right permissions, file managers in Android can allow the user to perform everything...

Give Your Broken Video Files a Second Chance with Video Repair

Our phones have, over the years, become so much more than just a way to communicate with others. They are our gates into the Neverland of cyberspace, they are our trusty companions, reminding us that we need to get up for that important meeting, they are our way to ford downtime when we can do...

YoWindow Weather: Mobile Weather has Never Looked So Great

It is very hard to argue with historic facts. One of them relating to mobile devices is that the face of mobile weather reports was drastically changed with the introduction of TouchFlo for Windows Mobile back in the days of the HTC Vogue. The UI basically introduced us to what we know today as widgets on...

Slide Dial Replacement Dialer Lets You Make Calls from Anywhere

If you frequently make phone calls, your dialer (aka phone app) is one of the most crucial apps in your app drawer arsenal. There are times, however, when we cannot dial right away because we are busy composing Emails, looking for files, or are simply tied up in other not-so-menial tasks. In such cases, launching the...

Enjoy Wallpaper Overload with PhotoPhase

We don't usually feature live wallpapers on the XDA Portal unless they are somewhat innovative and offer some kind of improvement over the vast sea of wallpaper apps currently available. More often than not, these apps will either make the current wallpaper on our screen come to life, such as those offering a parallax effect, or...

Get Your Cargo to its Destination in 4×4 Military Operations Reborn

Racing games have evolved quite a bit since the days of Pole Position back in the 80's. In the past 3 decades, the pixelated textures have long since been replaced, along with any and all graphical representations of cars, surroundings, backgrounds, and so on. On top of that, the AI on for your computerized opponents has...

Run, Jump, and Shoot in Tales of Ciaxia

There are certain types of games that have become paramount of the portable gaming world. As we have said before, most games involving birds seem to do quite well, whereas others that are more like number puzzles tend to grab our attention for a little longer. However, no one can argue that one of the newer...

Draw a Line and Let Your Device Do the Rest with LineitApp

Over the years, since even before Android entered the scene, we have striven to have our devices do as much as they can with as little interaction from us as humanly possible (aka the lazy effect). Lets face it, we carry these devices around because we are in constant need of being connected with others, forgetful, and always in...

Immersive Mode on Unrooted Devices with GMD Full Screen Immersive Mode

Everyone likes screen real estate--no question about that. The sole idea of having more space available for your clutter of icons, widgets, and so on is what has fueled phone manufacturers to come up with screens so large that they barely fit in our pockets anymore. We do, however, always look for more, and one sure...

Blast Those Flags with Knock the Flags

Lately, we have seen a rather drastic shift in the world of mobile device gaming. The infamous Angry Birds series has tried to reinvent itself again and again, attempting to continue reigning supreme over all else. However, it seems that it was not really enough, and it makes sense. After all, just how many times can you possibly...

Hide Numbers on Your SMS and Call Logs with Reflection

How many times have you given your device to someone else in order to show them a picture, website, or something completely unrelated to your daily lives, only to find that person rummaging through your personal data including who you called and even your text messages? Surely, you can delete several of your records, but...
