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.
Get Organized with pTasks v1.0
XDA member pangel83‘s pTasks has been popular enough that it earned a spot in Windows Marketplace. For those of you not familiar with it, this application will help you to keep control of your expenses such as on supermarket, gas, or any expense that you incur. Moreover, this is the ideal tool to get organized, so that we remember to get everything we need when we go out shopping, even the little stuff that we sometimes forget to buy. This update includes finger scrolling and multilingual support among others.
This application is still on early development process and some bugs still need to be fixed, so feedback from users will be very appreciated by the developer. You can download this app from Windows Marketplace for free.

So I got fed up waiting for someone to write a decent tasks interface for WM, and put something together to make my life easier. I am reasonably happy with the result, and therefore I am releasing it here on XDA.
Some things to keep in mind:
- .NET CF 3.5 Required.
- To get reminders, enable “Reminders” in the “Notification Sounds” (Sense 2.5) or “Sounds & Notifications” (elsewhere)
- 100% compatible with outlook exchange and activesync
- Could be used in conjunction with Remember the Milk’s MilkSync
New in 1.0
- Modify Scrolling Speed
- Flagged Emails
- Different colour for tasks due today.
You can find more information on the application thread.

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...
