Microsoft. Google. OnePlus. HTC. Fitbit. Ubuntu. The BBC. NPR. Jet Li. There are too many things called One. Add one more (sorry) to the list: the new official forum app for XDA developers. An alpha version of XDA One, the site’s first internal application, is available in APK format on this discussion thread. Previous apps, XDA-Developers and XDA-Premium, will continue to be supported on the Play Store for the foreseeable future.
XDA is the biggest place on the web for users to chat about mods for all kinds of phones, and it’s a central hub for everything root and ROM stuff on Android. At Android Police, we often use XDA for interesting projects and live downloads. The app divides XDA’s multitude of forums into four Holo-style tabs: top devices by poster activity, latest devices added to the forum list, general section for Android development, used market, and other threads on Android and other platforms and the main list of everything.
XDA One is pretty basic right now, as you might expect. Users can login to post replies or new topics, and you can search the master list, but there is no favorite or bookmark feature at this time. Future plans presumably include integration with the XDA homepage blog, which highlights cool hacks and relevant development and change news. The internal development team said the app will remain free and eventually be ad-supported.
The development team encourages bug reports and feature requests in the download thread, and those who want to get their hands dirty can check out the open source GitHub for the project.
