Google Play Reviews

  1. _-avatar

    Can't watch comments about news directly in app, watch images fullscreen directly in app. App redirecting to website instead. Also, overall navigation on site/forum is kinda odd, and same applies not only to app, but to website as well. Search is frustrating – you can't add parameters to it (sorting etc) and why it's called 'Search Plus'? Maybe some UX overhaul wouldn't hurt. On the minor side, would be neat to have system dark/light theme, side nav menu removal and adaptive icon support

  2. Don D.-avatar

    App works great when using it, but for some reason circumvents the doze feature on Android 10 and stays running all day. Even uses data and battery without ever being open... Should be reported for abuse.

  3. Joran-avatar

    The subscribed forums/threads section takes very long to load (even with just 4 subscribed forums), to the point where it's faster to manually search for the forum you want than use the bookmarks. Why not just keep these cached on the device?

  4. anthony garfield-avatar

    anthony garfield


    Since Android 10 this app has become very buggy. Horrible can't open any forums on s20 plus. There was a problem parsing the url?

  5. Sior's Channel-avatar

    I couldnt copy letters (like build.prop) and URLs. Some links you cant open with this app, you must use default browser. And search option sometimes couldnt search accurately what i type. Xda via browser is way better. Only good thing compare to browser is faster login via google and dark mode. Fix some options, dear app developers and ill give 5 stars.

  6. Nima Master-avatar

    Overally good for keeping track of the thread feeds but it logs out each time i enter the app with an active vpn connection. Since I'm using vpn half the times, it's an annoying issue. Please fix it.

  7. Manav Harsana-avatar

    Its fast,smooth and stable but there is only one bug that Some times I am unable to post my thread please fix that exept that every thing is very good.

  8. Revolt-avatar

    Does not bring you directly to the post when clicking from browser most of the time, that's if it even decides to load. Opening app and checking subscriptions doesnt load half the time. Usually fixes when manually refreshing. Even sometimes that doesn't work and I need to restart the app. Loading issues happen only on this app, lte or wifi.

  9. Vineet Bhatia-avatar

    I didn't like the design. I have an essential phone, but it kept showing me Moto G in the app, where it works fine in the website.

  10. Patrick Farmer-avatar

    I prefer the actual XDA website over the app. The app leaves out a lot of details the website doesn't

  11. Daniel Hjelvik-avatar

    I suggest that you add the following options to make xda for Android better: ~ Option to change text color ~ Option to change icon color ~ Option to have completely black background ------ Basically, options to customize every aspect of the user interface

  12. Sarah Bailey-avatar

    Love the forums so i can research how to fix development issues when working on my devices.

  13. Ganesh Karhale-avatar

    Saying wrong username/ password even when same login details are working with website. Recaptcha doesn't load.

  14. Abdul-Kabir Alegbe-avatar

    Abdul-Kabir Alegbe


    Good but sometimes the News tab refuses to update for days at a time.

  15. zg fg-avatar

    Last updated more than a year ago?! Problems: 1. Cannot attach screenshots (if using browser, there is an option on the page to upload attachements) 2. When sharing links to posts, it opens the page (starting with first post on the page, instead of openining the exact post - again, sharing posts links works perfectly from browser) 3. Two times I lost connection and XDA logs me out. I was no more able to login ever again - until I uninstalled and installed XDA app again

  16. Kronix市李_-avatar

    There's a problem when i try to register, i was asked to type the captcha, but there's not even a single CAPTCHA image show up, just a single straight black line and nothing else than that

  17. Han Nguyen-avatar

    The app stopped working on Amazon HD10 7th-Gen FireOS v5.3.7.0 -- authentication with proper login/password got rejected.

  18. Kevin Owen-avatar

    This and the full app not working properly with android 10. The forum icon will resort back to the full app randomly. As for conent. Xda used to be the place to go with a well moderated structure. Now you get the same question on different threads. Its all about rooting and apps but not in the appropriate threads. As an user of the full app for a fair few years I am looking elsewhere these days for sensible conversation and appropriate help.

  19. EJ Aquino-avatar

    Extremely slow and inconvienient to use. Browsing thru chrome is way better.

  20. Grumpy Cat-avatar

    Someone really needs to get controll of this hot mess. If the server issues and lag ain't bad enough, for some reason I can't send PM's to people, and I know I'm not blocked or they have that turned off.

    Well I am really blown away by the setup of this Application. I know you guys are always trying to find better ways to make the software better each and every day as well and that's just amazing!!! Things are getting better and better 😀 I have a samsung galaxy A205u, and it does not have this phone in the my device tab. You guys are probably working on that now. Keep up the good work everyone and thank you all for making a very AWESOME app. 💯💯🔥👍👍

  22. Frost-avatar

    Two problems. 1- it detects my phone (Xiaomi redmi note 5 pro) as (Xiaomi redmi note 5 plus) and even when I manually correct it, I have to recorrect it each time I log in. This should be detected correctly or at least saved in my account the way I corrected it. 2- can't upload photos in my replies on threads, frustrating :') gives me the message "bad request" each time

  23. Uncinematographable Screenshot Cinema-avatar

    Uncinematographable Screenshot Cinema


    I hear it has lots of trackers from a review below. Not surprised. I would suspect any of the developers on xda at the drop of a hat because I'm only a simple caveman. I don't build roms and I no longer root. I had a nandroid deleted right off my microSD card. I just can't hang out wit chu guys no more. Of course I suspect the democrats. Used to be a place where proud and happy phone users could glow of their device or find roms and answers but now it feels more like a demilitarized zone.

  24. Alif Akhmizan-avatar

    I guess the development is abandoned as last update was back in 2018. Not really user and mobile friendly, I prefer to use XDA website compared to this.

  25. Onjh-avatar

    No problem with platforms in general. But the 'news' platform mostly talks like advertisements. Knowing that Huawei flips off developers, modders and the likes (more so with a lot of Chinese phones like Doogee, Oukitel, etc...); yet still took more biased coverages from them passed off as 'news' or articles to make them look good just like most of the paid ads.

    I'm unable to post a question via the app. I keep clicking the arrow on the bottom right but it just doesn't work. Also the attachment thing is broken since everytime I try to upload it says network error. My network is working fine. Please look into it. Thank you!

  27. Cody Brown-avatar

    In the latest Android Pie, the native battery monitor keeps flagging the XDA (and the XDA Labs) app as high background usage. And asks if I want to restrict background usage for this app. I have now uninstalled XDA Labs. What is XDA app doing in the background so much that causes a battery drain? I hardly use the app. If not fixed I'll prob switch to viewing XDA on Chrome soon.

  28. SUM DINAX-avatar

    An excellent app, by having it installed on your device you get a chance to join the company of excellent developers and your start loving your dead Android and do something new to your smartphone. That's why i was able to flash my Xperia Z3 on Pie 9.0 and enjoying it. Thanks to XDA developers.

  29. Ben Warner-avatar

    I'm rocking a Galaxy Note 10+ on t-mobile but the app thinks I have a note 3 on at&t. Other than that it works like it should

  30. Denis Damanik-avatar

    Below expectation cant sign in, since the captcha wasnt there. Invincible thus unable to "press to reload"

  31. Eric Bussman-avatar

    Can't even register an account. It wants a captcha submit but won't show the captcha!! And this app is from the best and brightest devs we have? Scary thought. Smh

  32. EoflaOE ViceCity-avatar

    EoflaOE ViceCity


    The XDA app is good, but "My Device" reports mine as Lenovo Z5 Pro GT, but I purchased Lenovo Tab3 7 Essentials and when I looked for it, no entries for it was found. Since when did I purchase the Z5 Pro GT? The look is good and the performance is good anyways, although the captcha loading issues. WORKAROUND: Use Google+ log-in (no captcha required) or sign up in the website and go back to this app and sign-in using this app.

  33. Robert Nobinsky-avatar

    Warning! App is data mining spyware. App contains 5 separate 3rd party tracker/advertising/data_mining libraries. App RUNS AT STARTUP so it is tracking/mining you 24/7. This is their revenue model. If you care about your privacy, it is better/safer to access XDA via their website.

  34. Mike Genkin-avatar

    In XDA's Mobile Infancy, many of us paid money for the XDA Premium app to help support & expand XDA. Fast forward several years later, & XDA thanks ALL of ITS PAYING SUPPORTERS by releasing a FINAL UPDATE i.e. XDA LEGACY, which bombarded ALL of ITS PREMIUM USERS with Ads & Sponsored Content, but they also decided to RETIRE the app & force our hands into INSTALLING their NEW app, which also has ADs in addition to being very BUGGY, based on the reviews I've read from its current users. THANKS XDA!

  35. Raghav 29-avatar

    It seriously takes really long to load and could be cached instead

  36. joyel roy-avatar

    My device not working. Other threads are loading but my device not loading pls fix it

  37. Mehedi Hasan-avatar

    The downloading page can not show anything. Even not how much percentage downloaded

  38. nolimit.josh2x-avatar

    I really am trying to use this app, but I CANT LOGIN! When I register with Google or any other way, it takes FOREVER to load after I put in my username! If I register regular, it will tell me to put a reCaptcha text in after my username but no text shows up

  39. Joshua Chew-avatar

    I can't go past the initial login/singup page. I taped log in via Google, gave permissions. But then after the username section, it just stays at the loading screen.

  40. OldScho0l Offgrid-avatar

    OldScho0l Offgrid


    Absolutely shameful. Xda just keep failing to provide a decent app. So full of flaws that never gets fixed. Just got a brand new note 10 and I am unable to log in to my account which I have had since 2009. App claims my account dont exists.

  41. Prince Sharma-avatar

    The app is quite good but the fact it doesn't let me select and copy the text as well as links is pretty downtown. So i don't know if that's a bug or intended feature but please can it be resolved?

  42. John Doe-avatar

    High background usage despite opening it once, weeks ago. Never opened since.

  43. Sam W-avatar

    Can't install apps. Constantly get a vague message saying "something went wrong". Nothing is blocking or restricting the app. Simply does not work as far as app installation is concerned. Disappointing that alternative app repositories seem to only work half the time.

  44. Steven Fellows-avatar

    I couldn't log into my account even though all information provided was correct... Why not let us use our emails as well as our usernames to sign in. This was a disappointing test, I'll be going back to the website and won't be coming back to the app.

  45. Rick Sanchez-avatar

    Without signing in, there appears to be no way to remember multiple favorite devices, or favorite posts. Otherwise, what it does do, it's snappy and lean and looks good

  46. Android YT-avatar

    **** Important **** Hello Devs, I am using OnePlus 7 with latest update(Oxygen OS 10) , If i am registering in your app So it not showing captha, But Google+ registration is working. After registration I can't see set my device to Oneplus7 Please fix it. Thank You,

  47. Brian Baker-avatar

    Works great on a phone or tablet, not so great on chromeos though!

  48. Tenno Skoom-avatar

    Needs to be seriously improved or just start the app from scratch because at its' current state it doesn't look or feel like an app made by the maintainers of the largest development community for android.

  49. Inspector Gadget-avatar

    Inspector Gadget


    Complete trash. XDA programmers cannot programme any thing. Everytime I get a new phone this app gets worse and worse. None of the bugs have been fixed for years. This is really a shameful outcome for xda indicating that xda management is Clueless. I cannot load any of the subscribed threads I have added over the years. Normally due to retarded programming the threads never loaded when opening the app but instead u have to swipe down to trigger it to load the threads but now it no longer works.

    Amazing solutions generated by people who are givers not takers. Helping with all sorts of situations Especially handy when, i.e....myself, no good at coding and the like can look up various topics for help and learn about tech through site interactions. Thanks for your generosity people and of course to XDA for pulling together a site that could easily turn kaotic in a heartbeat if not well administrated.

  60. David Ng-avatar

    this app is bad always failed to post comment and failed to upload photo and the interface is messy and confused not user friendly interface ...

    Develop an app like pie gesture that can change notifications of android that don't have pie installed on their devices, and develop it in such a way that it works perfectly like gestures, and it should be more customizable
