XDA is home to hundreds of independent Android developers, all eager to showcase their wares. Everything from the latest apps, to news, wallpapers, and Xposed modules, which allow rooted devices to install mods and hacks in a no-brainer way, can be found on this massive forum, so it’s a great source for all things Android.
As searching and browsing all this using a web browser on your smartphone isn’t exactly convenient, folks at XDA came up with this app: XDA Labs lets access you all that in a user-friendly way. For an instruction, take a look at this walk-through.
Of course, apps that give access to app repositories other than Google’s own are not welcome in the Google Play Store – so there you’ll only find a stripped-down version limited to forum access. In the IzzyOnDroid app repo you will find the full-fledged version now so you don’t miss it – however, it won’t be regularly updated here. Never mind that, though, as the app should take care for its own updates itself (Labs has OTA self-updates that will notify you when a new version is available).
NonFreeDep: The application depends on a non-free application (e.g. Google Maps) - i.e. it requires it to be installed on the device, but does not include it.
NonFreeNet: This application promotes or entirely depends a non-Free network service.
Tracking: The application tracks and reports your activity to somewhere – usually either without your consent, or by default (i.e. you’d have to actively disable it). It’s commonly used for when developers obtain crash logs without the user’s consent, or when an app is useless without some kind of authentication.
UpstreamNonFree: The application is or depends on non-free software. This does not mean that non-free software is included with the app: Most likely, it has been patched in some way to remove the non-free code. However, functionality may be missing.
