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.
Follow the World Cup on your Winmo Device
Get ready for the World Cup and follow your team’s progress in South Africa with World Cup 2010!
XDA forum member otherworld has released version 1.1 of World Cup 2010 for Winmo users. The main screen shows a countdown to the World Cup with three tabs showing your team, the tournament stage including latest news and today’s fixtures.
All dates, match times and details are already loaded in the application, which results in no data connection being required initially. However, once matches have been played and scores require updating, then the app will automatically connect to the internet.

It has all the teams, news (just for your team or for the tournament), groups, schedules, points, scores that update, fixtures that update (e.g. once a team has qualified) etc. etc. The moment the app loads you can see when your team’s next match is (or the tournament’s next match), and if you’re stuck at work unable to watch a match you’ll get score updates during it! All with a quick & very intuitive interface, nice animated menus and kinetic scrolling.
The app is compatible with WM 6.0 – 6.5.3 and the update to Version 1.1 is free for existing 1.0 users.
Although, it is currently only available in the UK Marketplace, the international release is expected later this week.

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...
