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....
Enable 3D Pics in Stock Gallery for Sense 4+ on EVO 3D
Recently, we have seen lots of cool projects being born on the HTC EVO 3D, which is for the most part a device that is slowly fading into the shadow of its younger, slimmer, and more powerful brethren. But as it is customary on XDA, this is not going to stop devs from continuing with work on devices with such unique features (fully functional 3D camera and display). The only problem is that as new updates become available from our devs, other things get broken. In the case of this, Sense is very much tied up to every aspect of operating the device’s 3D capabilities, and porting the UI and framework is never without its hiccups.
One of the features that is missing from most Sense 4+ based custom ROMs is the ability to see your 3D pictures in 3D by using the stock gallery app. XDA Forum Member androidus21 took a shot at this issue with the help of Forum Member HJ200’s Tools3D-Library, and came up with a small add-on that enables 3D picture viewing directly from the Gallery app. The fix essentially adds a link in the Android “Share” intent, which enables 3D display to activate and fully display the .mpo and .jps over-imposed image files instead of a single 2D file.
The dev is currently trying to investigate a way to get around this, so that the Gallery displays the pictures without having to go through all this. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to chime in. In the meantime, enjoy your renewed ability to used your 3D in the way it was meant to be used.
I build a “PlugIn” for galleries, for example the HTC Gallery in Sense 4.0/4.1 roms. So what is the function of this PlugIn?
It will show your mpo- and jps-files in 3D.

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.
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...
