In honor of the SOS blog reaching 100,000 page views, I have decided to release the SOS App for public release.

DOWNLOAD (no password necessary)

Remember, this app is 100% stable, but it is not 100% complete.

The app currently has four tabs: News (which gets its content from this blog), Themes (which gets its content from the Themes page on this blog - which is out of date BTW), Q&A (which hasn't really been touched yet), and BETA Themes - No DLs yet (which is what the final Themes section will look like - and yes, there are no downloads... yet).

The point of this app is simple, I'm not Sprint, I can't send you a text if something is wrong with your phone. However, I have been running this blog to keep you all updated with the latest Swagged Out news. Originally, this app was simply going to be a way for you all to stay up to date without having to search the internet to find this page first.

But then, PFCLand (who is MIA at the moment) and I sat down and thought up a really cool idea to provide an app that would allow SOS users a place on their EVO where they could download all of the add-ons that Team Swag provides to their users.

For months, I have had these ideas up in my head. I really wanted to release this sooner and am still hesitant to release this now (since it is still a bit away from completion). But I feel you guys can appreciate the app for what it's worth and hopefully you can enjoy the app in it's incomplete form.

In the next few weeks, I hope to provide you all with another great release for the ROM. At the same time, I will be providing the app with incremental updates. The app does not need to be re-downloaded; you simply need to hit the refresh button (lower left) for the app to reset its content (and update itself).

Last but not least: The SOS App is coming to the Android Market soon! More details to come!

Swagged Out Review

Blogger, Evo User, has posted a video review of the latest version of Swagged Out Stock. If you have ever been hesitant about checking out the ROM and want to see all of the features in action - this is the perfect video for you. Another big surprise is coming soon to all of you SOS users out there. Prepare yourselves.

Battery Life Concerns

We all have had different experiences with our battery. This is what my EVO looked like today. As you can see, lots and lots of use. This is the stock battery, btw... I can squeeze a lot more out of my 3500mAh extended battery.

Here's my setup:

  • SOS v1.9.0.7 (Swag = ON)
  • Lithid's Freedom v0.9 Less
  • CPU: 768MHz/245MHz
  • Governor: InteractiveX
  • RAM Tweak: Juwe11's built-in
  • Task Killer: none
  • Clock speed app: No Frills CPU Control
  • Usage: Heavy (games, lots of Tapatalk, occasional Googling, etc.)
