More users will bring more users. If you know what I mean. Site "aesthetics" aren't bad, although, listing devices when there's zero available can be confusing.

Within the custom ROM community the biggest heartache caused by Lollipop’s switch from Dalvik to Art was the loss of the incredibly popular Xposed framework.  The framework allows developers to create modules which change the way your (rooted) Android…

If you only go to one UK Android event in your life, this might just be the one.
 
It's the time of year where we start our final push to try and convince some of you to bite the bullet and buy ticket to come along to our little Android event. This year we will invading Birmingham on the 21st of March.

For those that don't know, March of the Droids #MotD2015 is an annual event run for Android enthusiasts in the UK. The event is run for the community by the community and is totally non profit (in truth it costs us one every year). We are not a developers conference or a trade show, but are instead a mix of all the things that make Android and being a part of it's community great. We have developers, OEM's, news sites, games sites and more involved because for Android doesn't fit in one hole.

This will be our forth year and we have slowly and steadily grown. Every year is a struggle to get companies involved, but we are reaching a stage where association with MotD can benefit them (even if only in a small way).

On the day we have short talks with a little Q&A to get you involved, and between the presentations we allow time for everyone to stroll about chatting, and interacting with the exhibitors, and presenters. With a little luck we will also have some goodies to give away to some lucky attendee's as well.

This year we have confirmed +Paul O'Brien​​ who will be giving a talk on 'Home Automation & the Internet of Things'. +Matteo Doni​​ will be discussing 'Android: More than Google's OS' and also promoting his work with +Skyscanner​​. +ASUS​​ will be in attendance to show off some of their fantastic devices as well. We additionally have support from +Swappa​​ as they make a push over on this side of the pond to dave you money selling your old Android phones. +david stevenson​​ will be setting up stall selling and creating Android collectables, so if you ever wanted a little Android figures painted to suit your favourite sports team or company, this could be the perfect time. Keeping things fun, +Joypad Jedi​​ will be returning to show the best in Android gaming, Tom was a stand out last year and it will be great to see what he has planned this time round. We have a few more irons in the bag as well, but sadly can't let you know who they are just yet until final confirmation comes through, but keep a eye on the site for updates.

Added to all the above we have the backing of some great UK Android sites. +Coolsmartphone​, +Land of Droid​, +DroidHorizon​, +BeginnersTech​ to mention some. As we say, a mix off all things Android.

Tickets are a bargain £20 and can be bought from http://www.marchofthedroids.co.uk.

Forecast.io has quickly become my go to weather source. Ever since a friend pointed me to the site I refuse to use any other source for the latest outlook. While it’s very iOS-esque and only has an official app for Apple products, the simple clean look…

Love android ✔
Live in the UK✔

Get your ticket booked now for the best community Android event in the UK.
 
After a ton of emails sent, hangouts conversed, DM's, texts and phone calls it looks like we have a final line up for #MotD2015 in Birmingham on March 21st. Nothing is iron clad but all involved have confirmed and intend to be there. That said there is still time for anyone else throw their hat into the ring if they feel they can contribute (just get in touch).

So, what do we have going on?

For bespoke custom Android collectables +david stevenson​ has been working his magic to create some commissions and specials for general sale on the day and will be giving everyone a sneak peek later on today.
+Mathew Bloomer Brack​ will be presenting on NFC implants and actually getting one done during his slot. To make things even better Dangerous Things will be in attendance and will happily pop an implant into anyone who wants one for £125.
Keeping with the NFC theme +NFC Ring​ will also be manning a stall showing off their fantastic product plus an NFC controlled door lock as well. There is a little rumour that they might give one or two away and have a handful of discount codes as well.
We have +Honor Uk​ representing +Honor Nederland​ (EU) with goody bags and to explain why Honor as a brand differs from huawei, and what makes it special.
MotD regular +Matteo Doni​ will again be presenting for +Skyscanner​, this time about why Android is more than Google's OS.
From the colonies +Jeremy Meiss​ will don his +xda-developers​ hat and perform a small song and dance for us all to laugh at (not really, but he will be giving us a talk).
+ASUS UK​ Will be showing off some of their latest devices to possibly temp you when you make your next smartphone purchase.
And just confirmed today +HTC+HTC UK​ will be in the house!!!! +Laura Kimball​ along with +Graham Wheeler​ will be fielding a Q&A session, so get your questions ready.

As always our in house band +James Bricknell​ will be the man with the mic, keeping things rolling along.

We also need to say a big thanks to +Clove Technology+Three UK​ and +Swappa​ who although unable to attend have sent nice things for us to give away to you lovely people!!

If you fancy coming along tickets are still available on the site for a piddling £20, or even better if you represent a company that you think our audience would like to hear from or with a product you would like to show off just get in touch.

Got a question about the 2 variants of #honor 6 we have? Ask away before we post our review.

Does the pebble steel count as an accessory?

We have a strict "don't follow any old android site" rule here at Land of Droid which is why when we share a site you know they are going to be worth following.

We fully recommend and encourage you all to follow +Droid Horizon​​ if, like us, you have a love for Android.

It's also worth following the site owner +Ste Boyd​​ who shares lots of themes, Android niceties and the occasional beer photo or 7.
 
Hey guys..  

Why not tag your friends here to circle us.
