Everyone knows what it's like to comb through the forums on a new device to find ROMs, kernels, apps and all the other customizations that come out of the community.

It's a mixed bag! It's satisfying when you do find something that really appeals to you, but it's also frustrating because a forum just simply isn't the best platform to show off a lot of the modifications we use. A lot of great content, be it wallpapers, icon packs, themes or even homescreens get lost in a sea of text lists, acronyms and giant threads :p

So we've come up with a way we think will help better promote, organize and support independent development in our community.

It's called XDA Feed!

Each device is supported by the community! You can contribute links to your favorite ROM, Kernel, Wallpaper, Thread, Homescreen, Icon Pack, Video or Article and help support your device with content.

Features
  • Browse, view, download and share the best content on XDA for your device!
  • Custom built in Download Manager supports resuming cancelled/failed downloads
  • Filter out content you're not interested in
  • Star content you're interested in to look at later
  • Granular notification control: opt out entirely, batch notifications to certain time intervals and specify which content you want to see updates from
  • Dark theme
  • Suggest content for your (and any!) device
  • Leaderboard that shows top contributors!

Contribute!
Did you know Feed content comes from the community? Find the 'Suggest to Feed' links in the app or visit https://feed.xda-developers.com and suggest a link to see that item show up in Feed!

FAQ
Q: Why does this app exist?
We all know there is a ton of cool stuff you can do to your phone, but navigating the XDA forums to find it all can be a bit daunting. This app is a curated "feed" of all that stuff you wish you knew about, so you don't miss anything.

Q: Wait a sec...why are there multiple versions of Feed?
This is deprecated and per-device builds will be removed soon. Make sure to grab the all devices version for the latest & quickest updates.

Q: Why not just integrate this into XDA Labs?
We wanted to separate the functionality of Feed because we have some very cool stuff planned for it. You'll see!


General Limitations
  • Download History only shows items actually downloaded by Feed itself. Due to the Play Store TOS, this means Apps and Icon Packs are linked to and as such won't show up in Download history. We're not opposed to still including those downloads in the history, they just aren't there at the moment.

We're live, folks! Anybody familiar with my threads knows the score. If not check out XDA Labs. Debug and testing builds will be up soon!

Be sure to read all the OP posts to reduce duplicate questions! Hope you guys like this app and like I mention in the OP will hopefully be rolling this out to more devices in the near future! <3

Like mentioned in the news post, OP, etc, this is a beta release and we're specifically targeting two devices. Unlike other apps, this app is literally a curated feed of content for the OnePlus 3/3T. Yes, there's content all devices can use, but the backend data right now is largely manual and can't be done for every device automatically.

As we work on the app and grow in terms of features, usability, stability, etc, we'll also work on automating more and more parts of the backend to be able to include all devices.

This is the type of app I want to see for my device (and for the record I don't own a OP3/3T), but we can't get there for all devices over night. This is the first device supported and while you may not benefit from it, there are hundreds of thousands of users who can.

Using your logic, a ROM would be pointless if it didn't exist for every device. Certain ROMs and kernels exist for specific devices and that's the way XDA has always been. This is that in app form.

No,my logic do not say rom should exist for every device,do not please turn my logic over. Simple,i think there are devices and manufactures who deserves more from u,from xda,not to follow only popular ones at the moment,there are devices that in way helped to build this site and i think u need to give deserved atenttion to them,that's my point,not that app needs to be on start for all devices,i know that needs a lot of work. Please sir do not bend my words,thanks,and that is all here from me. All the best with this work.

You said "Make it for all devices or not make it at all". Imagine if I went to a PureNexus ROM thread for the Pixel and said that because they didn't support my Sony Xperia Z3 Compact?

The fact of the matter is that unlike HTC or Samsung, OnePlus has actively reached out to the community in ways very few OEMs have these days (or ever, for that matter). The site may have been started to largely support HTC devices, but HTC has done very little to support our community and their efforts seem to only be decreasing! I say this as a longtime HTC owner who maintained ROMs for HTC devices for years.

I'm going to drop this line of conversation now, but I needed to address the point. It makes sense for XDA to target their largest base of users first -- many of whom own the devices specifically because of the efforts OnePlus has made to engage and support our community.

The OP makes an app for a device he owns thats how it works, he is under no obligation to make anything for any device. I must say if you are requesting him to make it for your device it doesn't sound like a request but more like a demand which certainly isn't allowed on xda

Read again,he does not own that device,and i have no requests here,u have no need to quote me,i have already said what i have to OP. If u are frustated in any way,find another way ,nothing i said is adressed to u,and i am here for long long time,and i know xda rules very good,do not teach me. If u new moderators or whatever wont to delete my posts feel free,but do not quote me without any need for that.
