More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative.

AmazonIt! Barcode Application
Shopping at your finger tips is becoming more literal than you can believe. Often times, shopping to compare prices on the internet using your computer is not an option. XDA member zaijian developed AmazonIt! for WM, so you can search not just the price but read reviews and send an email of the product information.

To top it off, AmazonIt! will show you if the price of a product has changed since the last update.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
