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.
Effortlessly Redial With “Redial Me” for Android
Sometimes, simplicity is the true key for great apps, and this is one, which is brought to us by XDA member ftgg99 is not the exception. Redial Me will be your best partner when you are in a bind and can not even afford to look at the screen to attempt to complete that very important phone call. People are not always accessible and the need to redial is a necessity, to say the least. Android (much like it was with Windows Mobile) can redial from the dial pad by simply touching the last dialed number. However, depending on your screen size, you may need to have good aim or else you will end up calling someone else. The app pretty much behaves like a normal pop up asking you if you want to redial, so you really just need to press “yes” and off you go on another attempt to call the other person.
The app will expire as it is due to it being in early development stages. Please leave some feedback if you try this one.
Another simple but awesome root app from the crazy Russians!
Redial Me will simply keep calling a number back when the line is busy or gets disconnected at the other end.
The behavior is easily customized and works silently in the background, using popups as an interface.

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...
