DroidVPN Helps Android Users Browse Anonymously

Some people just need their web to themselves (for whatever reason). For those on Android who crave VPN, a good client can be hard to find.

Well, this is a situation XDA Member DroidVPN is attempting to rectify with their Android app, DroidVPN.

The app provides users with a few features (with more promised from the developer), including:

DroidVPN can unblock ISP restrictions, unblock voip, bypass firewalls, and lets you browse the web anonymously.
DroidVPN is using its own simple and efficient protocol so its not using PPTP or L2TP which is sometimes blocked by your ISP.

The proprietary protocol is pretty cool, especially with the aforementioned problems with PPTP and L2TP which is one of the things that makes this app unique. Just be sure you’re phone is running Android 2.1 or higher and you’re rooted.

The only downside, for the time being, is the app is in a closed beta. However, if you want to try it out and help with the testing, you can head over to the original thread where you can find additional information on the app and instructions on how to sign up for the beta.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

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.
