Reviews From google play store

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Can't watch comments about news directly in app. Can't watch images fullscreen directly in app. App redirecting to website instead. Also, overall navigation on site/forum is pretty odd, and same applies not only to app, but to website as well. Experience really needs an overhaul. And there's still no adaptive icon. App always running in background for no reason.

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!

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.

Great app. Makes it easy for me to access my subscribed threads and quickly find neccessary information.

Great navigation bar. Much better than desktop site. Also it's a lot less cluttered.

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?

Not letting me post on my LG G8. I click the publish/send post button and nothing happens.

Can't log in - the app doesn't accept my username and/or password, even though i've been a member since 2012

Ok app experience. Perhaps best forum app Ive used from play. Still, I miss yahoo answers. I feel like Google has retarded every American by making the internet only provide their most dire needs.

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

Crashes all the time, layout is a mess.

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.

it's a good app but you should be able to swipe in between photos On a post or page when viewing them full screen.

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.

At registration, the reCAPTCHA image doesn't appear whatsoever, so I can't register...

I am unable to register as it requires reCAPTCHA text but there is no image. How can you have an app and leave it broken this way??

Unable to login despite correct ID and password.

It's ok but using xda in desktop browser has more features. Why is this??

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.

Great place for everything you need for the computer and mobile network development world.

Best source of knowledge for your mobile I have ever come across. Cannot even think of not downloading straight away to new phone.

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!

loading is slow although my connection is fast...

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

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.

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.

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.

half-ready app still under heavy development. does not respect most formatting, so not even an alternative to the website

NOT ABLE TO LOG IN WITH GOOGLE!!! Can someone tell me why am i not being able to login? I see the green screen and it continues loading and loading and loading!

Can't register from app, it asks for a recaptcha without displaying a recaptcha image

After logging in with Google account I get a Green screen please fix.

very confusing interface .... and everytime you try to attach pic it says network failure .....

App has been having high background battery usage issue for months now but remains unfixed.

wont let me log in. i even tried clearing app data but still no. 5 stars when fixed.

very nice app. a small problem with my 2 letter account name. can't login no error. so i linked my account with google account and voilà fully logged in.

It's great app, I mean it does what it's supposed to do. But since recently I am not able to upload screenshots in my posts. Please fix this issue as soon as you can.

i cant register the recaptcha doesbt work and not showing any images to text

excellent site and it is things like update.zip on the clockworks something that helped me out when I was having a problem with some programming in the days I am sorry my 3nglish is not that good ixlxlxuxmxixmxyxtxix now if you write that then delete the I am allum or ællumanati ålluminati so I do not know what it does mine is the hidden I In the areas and the u in the top of the most the you pair with an other and spell the like a star for the a with other the 2ll um those things connect

Okay please read this developers ^^ When I use this app to post question, it didn't work. The "send" button ( the arrow) did nothing. Please fix this or at least contact me :) (currenly using the Mi A1)

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

Cant register. Captcha can't be seen

this app keeps running in the background, on 3 of my devices, i have had to remove it, using too much battery.

i wish i could give it to 5 stars but...i'm unable to sign up. it doesnt show any recaptcha text or image , how could i write then any text in the recaptcha box..????

So won't post, send button unresponsive so only good for reading. Just use website. Appears others have issues nothing being done.

app is great, devs or should i say wannabe devs on there are high on their horse. real devs are cool. too many wannabes on that site now. Yeah, after using xda for years now, it is completely ruined by moderators who do not have a clue what they are talking about. I doubt some are even into Android modding the way things are on there. It is like playing catch up on there with everyone, but they are always way behind, moderators. Too busy trying to make it like Facebook.

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 ...

monitor shows facebook audience ads and admob. but no mentioned about it in the title. not good.

Just a very poorly done App. It's better to have desktop shortcut to the website.

Paid for the old app, went to download on new phone and they retired it. I paid for no ads, now I have to have them again.

The background battery usage is very high. I had to put restrictions as suggested by Android.

Post ceartion failed when attach png file (screenshot)

Absolutely terrible app. Recognizes you have a SM-975 and tell you you have a Samsung 3 or 4. Poor for an Android developer app.

Love it. Continue updating & improving...

Qon't let me create an account,. the recaptcha doesn't show anything,. Might wanna check it out..

Can't login, can't register, can't search properly.. Lot's of bugs.. Dev should focus on this app....

Nica app, but i cant post on any forum, everytime i touch send icon, nothing happen, please fix this.

Everytime I try to post a reply it says "Post Creation Failed". This is happening on pixel 2

Can't upload attachment(s) then it's showing "network error, could not upload file ".......png""

Can lt even register. Stays on green loading screen indefinitely then crashes

i cannot login in the latest version it says invalid username or password every time i try . i even reset my password

Can't search any device... What's wrong with this updated version.

miss the old app from 8 or 9 years ago when the modes were all on

Unable to login. it continues to load after loging through google.

Loading times are way to freaking long. And yes i have good internet.

those video ads are hella annoying and I can't find a way to block it even with adaway so i have to uninstall this.

works great to catch up on xda, hardly use the pc anymore. thank you developer(s)!

Surprising that xda app doesn't target latest Android API. The app is slow and stutters.

registartion error.. i can't see any reCAPTCHA image and reload option.. really annoying

So far I love what I see I have been looking for something just like this and I pretty sure after I do my research and carefully,reading,planning I WILL FREAKIN LOVE IT

i never get a notification eventhough it always runs in the background

The captha in new registration is not vissible please fix it asap

Why... Just. Why... Why zenfone 3 max 5.5" is not included in the forums... Only zenfone 3 max 5.2" that are always supported...

Sucks, slow, pretty disappointed considering its from xda-developers, lately very hard to get it to post, zero updates

No recaptcha image when trying to log in. Galaxy S8+

Useless app. CAPTCHA image is not showing.

Good, but XDA Labs (which you must download directly from XDA) offers more features.

reCAPTCHA didn't appear while registering..

why the f ing push service always on , i disable the notification for the app but the service still running in the background same thing for xda labs

Nice lay out and easy to navigate.

i installed this , but inside the app there is icon for installing 'full version' whats the difference ? why full version is not available here in google store ?

Information platform for customized your Android smartphone..

Not showing the re-CAPTCHA image when im register..

cannot register - no recaptcha image shows up

Amazing on S7 Edge! Nothing wrong with at all.

I know you get money from Ads... But why is it too many so suddenly?

my device is broken on stock n960f/d. nothing loads.

"Post creation failed" mostly. Rarely my posts gets posted.

It's been wonderful for me so far. Even took the time to write me an email. A little appreciation goes along way. You got me as a fan. Maybe a employee as well one day.

Very informative. I use it everyday.

can't register.. captcha image not loading...

Great app, but please add a scheduled dark mode

It's taking forever to sign in pls fix the issue Oneplus 6t

Detects my phone as galaxy note 3 but i actually own galaxy a30 fix that soon
