Disa, A Messaging Client That Can Merge Conversations Across Services, Is Now Available As A Public Beta

One of the problems with instant messaging since time immemorial has been juggling contacts and conversations across multiple services. It's bothersome on desktops, and it's especially unwieldy on mobile devices, where multitasking isn't as easy and similar sounding chimes can send you searching through the wrong app for the latest reply.

Disa is a new Android messaging client that attempts to tackle this problem. It has been in development for a long time, spending a healthy period in private alpha being tested by over 33,000 people before making its way to the Play Store in the form of a private beta.

Xposed Framework For Lollipop Is Now Available As An Alpha

The day you've (maybe) been waiting for has finally arrived—Xposed for Android 5.0 is finally available on XDA. Developer rovo89 posted a teaser the other day, and has followed through on his vague promise of "soon."

Trading RPG 'Merchants Of Kaidan' Costs $5.99, But It Might Just Make You Rich

That's the sense of purpose that guides players through Merchants of Kaidan, a trading game with RPG elements that may get some players thinking back to Sid Meier's Pirates!, only with merchants and less combat (along with noticeably fewer eye patches).
