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.
Big Bang MIUI Boot Animation
It looks as if lately our devs have been focusing a lot on the looks of our devices. You may remember not too long ago, a great CM7 boot animation that was created by XDA member adam2010. Well, if you liked it but are currently using the other famous AOSP rom known as MIUI, you will feel great to know that the dev has prepared a boot animation for this rom as well. Big Bang starts just as that… a big bang of light and dust (think of the beginning of our galaxy). After all the dust dissipates, you see the birth of this rom. Very clean and nice graphics and it is bound to run rather well on higher end devices. The animation has no audio, which is actually nice for those late night flashing runs when you are trying not to wake up the dog.
Please leave some feedback if you enjoy this one.
No matter what size screen you have, the Big Bang bootanimation can fit it perfectly and it doesn’t lose quality. I have highly optimized the images and made the animation as smooth as possible. I hope you guys experience the same thing.

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". 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...
