Button Savior Non Root Receives Major Overhaul
Nearly one year ago, we talked about an innovative app by XDA Senior Member jerryfan2000 that allowed users to replace their physical buttons with their on-screen counterparts. There are a variety of reasons why one would want to do this, such as when a button starts going awry or simply the desire for something easier to reach. There are quite a few apps that offer this functionality, but what set jerryfan2000’s app apart was that it could do this without root access.
Now, nearly a year has passed, and jerryfan2000’s aptly titled Button Savior Non Root has received a rather large update. New in version 2, users can swipe to show the Button Savior panel from all sides of the screen. There is also a floating trigger icon, which can be moved to wherever is most convenient. The new “Pop Control” feature now allows users to add their favorite actions for easy access. And finally, users can now configure the app to automatically show the softkeys when a Samsung S Pen or standard mouse are used.
The latest update is still compatible with all (rooted or unrooted) devices running Android 4.1 or greater. Make your way over to the application thread to learn more and get the latest update.

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
