XDA-Dev Forums releases Android app for those geeky to the core…

If you’re not in the smartphone tinkering scene, you probably haven’t the slightest clue what/who/where XDA is. To keep it short: it’s a massive collection of nerdy, intellectual knowledge all centered around (mainly) one common brand of smartphone — HTC.

There’s been a few exceptions here and there along the way, but over the years, the forums have remained mostly true to their origins. Some hate it. Others admire them for it. Whatever side of the fence you’re on, taking a simple stroll through the forums will reveal one of the most diverse and helpful communities of any type of tech/gadgetry. With the onslaught of Android, the Windows Mobile-based HTC phones of years past have started giving away to their Android brethren. New development, new OS, new possibilities. You know how it is.

With all of that said, what better way to celebrate/further promote community support than with an official XDA app? This isn’t a WinMo or Win7-only app. In fact, it’s not even for those two OS’s at all. It’s 100% Android support through and through.

A quick glance at reviews and the few screenshots available show a very simple to navigate app. That simplicity pays off well however as there are literally thousands of pages spanning years of information. Thankfully whomever put this little gem together took the common sense no frills approach. In this particular instance, it worked and worked wonderfully. But it’s early in the game and not many people have even heard about the app yet. So, now that you know, get downloading, get using, and come back here letting us know how it all went. Hell, even though I don’t own an HTC phone I’m still getting this app. There’s plenty of geeky stuff to take in regardless if you’re an HTC user or not.

Am I weird/nerdy? Yes. Are you? We’ll see…
