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

CPU Overclock Tool WiMoSpeed Updated
For Windows Mobile lovers, XDA member iwfratz posted an update to WiMoSpeed, a good tool to over clock your CPU. As mentioned by the developer, the application lets you change the CPU-speed by manipulating the values WM uses for clock control, which makes the app work reliably on battery and AC without any scripting or active components. It´s important to understand that by using this tool, you may damage your device, so make sure that you know how to proceed.
To download this app, go to the original thread and download the cab.

WiMoSpeed lets you change the CPU-speed. In opposite to other tools, even to the predecessor OverClockTool (OCT), it manipulates the values WM uses for clock control. So it works reliable on battery and AC without any scripting or active components.
– WiMoSpeed needs .NET CF 3.5
– Download and install the CAB
– Start WiMoSpeed.exe. If it reports that it cannot identify your ROM: read LIMITATIONS/PROBLEMS
– Select Speed
– Set Speed
– Exit WiMoSpeed.exe
– Your device still runs with speed you set

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...
