Greetings all!

When we launched the 2015 new forum template, we promised that we were also getting ready to release XDA One, which is the first forum app for XDA developed entirely in-house (thanks to @tilal6991 for working on the code, @rwestergren for building the new API, @bitpushr for helping with server stuff, and @jerdog for his coordination). In its current (alpha) state, XDA One is a fast (and nice-looking) way to browse and post in the forums. You can access our mention/quote system, see your subscriptions, send PMs, and more. In the future we plan to add tools for moderators, integration with our Development Database, support for tablets, and more to make it the "One" place to experience all of XDA on mobile.

We have open sourced the app so that any can help make it better. Please access the XDA One GitHub repository to see the source code and/or to contribute.


Why is this app in alpha?
It's not done yet and bugs still exist. As we put finishing touches on the app, we'll move closer to a beta release which will go on Google Play. Until then, we want XDA members to give it a try and help us find bugs.

What are you doing with XDA Free, XDA Premium, and Tapatalk? Will they still work?
For the foreseeable future, these apps will continue to be supported.

Why is it called "XDA One"?
As mentioned above, our vision for the app is for it to be the "One" place where you can experience all of XDA from your mobile device. In the future we will more deeply integrate the app into the site.

Are you going to charge for XDA One or will it be free?
Our plan is to make XDA One ad-supported.

I found a bug! Or, I have a feature request!
Post them in this thread. If reporting a bug, please describe the issue, steps to reproduce, and tell us what hardware and ROM (OS) you're using.

A couple of technical notes:

XDA One is developed using the Android Studio IDE. A simple debug build can be compiled using the XDA-One:assembleSimpleDebug gradle task. We will adopt the "Fork & pull" model of collaboration. Collaborators are encouraged to fork the project and submit pull requests for XDA's review, in order to be integrated back into the main release.

0.1.13 Release 16/3/2015

I was going to release this build last week but I had some issues with Marshmallows permission system. I didn’t realise Google had changed the protection level for External Storage access from normal to dangerous. So when I tried to download an attachment I got an FC. There is a slight issue with the dark and black theme, device images appear to have a white background. I’m not sure what to do with this, maybe disable the device images and revert to the placeholder Image?

Note: you may need to remove the old version before you install this one; I had some issues with my old signing keys.

Finally an app made specifically for XDA. How about making the actual developers of the app post in here so we can all thank them?

Check out my icon pack!

Oh Goodie! Finally!

Installing now!

EDIT - Clean Crisp UI. Loving it!! Like the Gmail Style Refresh. Just one observation. When I am in Subscribed Thread list and press Home, relanching the app Brings me back to list of Forums not Subscribed threads. Don't like this part.

Bye Bye Crap A Talk!

Thanks guys, been using it for a day now and I made a list of stuff I ran into:
  • The search button should have be more prominent, it shouldn't disappear until the user is in a thread. It's still useful when in a sub-forum so it could be in the location of the star when in a thread.
  • The brown doesn't make a whole lot of sense anymore, it's nowhere to be found on the site so why is it still in the app?
  • When opening subscribtions I think subscribed threads should be the default view instead of subscribed forums, but I guess that depends on how users use the subscribtion functionality.
  • There's a lot of space in the blue square with the user-name and avatar in it, you could list the message, quote and mention counts there, and I'm not sure why my e-mail address is there?
  • Giving the new thread button such a prominent place doesn't make a lot of sense and I think it encourages posting a new thread instead of encouraging users to search.
  • There should be a way to add a device to "my devices" from the app, perhaps a star in the action bar just like the subscribe stars on the forum list when in a device forum?
  • The button for opening the "insert smilie" looks like a place-holder, but just to be sure it clashes like crazy with the rest of the interface. And I think "insert emoticon" would be a better name for the interface.

This is meant in the most constructive way possible, I've just been reading a lot on interaction design and couldn't help myself. :P I'll try and fiddle with the color scheme a bit this weekend, I have something like this in mind.

I like this color scheme, and this is exactly the kind of thing we were hoping to see when developing this app. Looking forward to seeing your contributions!

Please make sure that before you install this you are fully aware that it is an ALPHA (it even says so in it's title ). So there WILL be bugs. Best way that you can help the awesome team that put this together is by submitting a "proper" bug report with a logcat attached.

Don't know how to pull a logcat? Well I have just the thread for you. [GUIDE] Easiest Way to Utilize Catlog Believe me, a logcat and bug report go soooo much further than, "It's broke. Please fix". We've been using this for about a month and it has come along tremendously since then.

Also note that a Bug Report is not the same thing as a Feature Request. Knowing the difference will help everyone out in the long run.
