More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
Basic5 – New Type of Skin for EndKey
XDA member jsmccabe78 has just released a new concept for the ever popular Windows Mobile EndKey application. The dev has made some basic graphs for this useful app and made it a bit more finger friendly than it already was. On top of that, he made this skin in such a way that the shortcuts on it could be easily edited to fit anyone’s needs. The dev has posted very precise instructions on how to install, modify, and really fit all your needs.
So, if you are into this app, make sure that you get it and leave some feedback.
I use my Endkey on a daily basis. However, I use only a part of many of the multiple options. I wanted bigger images and more specific choices. So I skinned my own EndKey – named Endkey_basic5. This is simply a skin based on the work of Kurt and Johcos. I am no means a graphics guy, but wanted to share for one reason – to show that you can change up the design and have images both larger and staggered (non-linear). If you like what you see, but want some changes please see post 2 for instructions.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
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...
