Get the HTC Typing Experience on your G2

If you hate the G2’s soft keyboard, you can sit back and relax because it was found that the HTC keyboard hack for the Nexus One works correctly on the T-Mobile G2. This keyboard, which is an enhanced version of the stock HTC keyboard, has some pretty nice features built-in. It’s made by XDA developer jonasl, and the features are endless – almost literally. It’s amazing to see how much work has been put into this keyboard – it’s been updated more than 25 times now, and many of them contain new features –  and it’s great that it’s also compatible with the T-Mobile G2.

I’m now taking a break from the work on this mod due to serious lack of time. I’ve spent a huge amount of time on this mod already and also shared all my code and methods.

I hope I can find some time to continue this little project later this summer. Thanks for all the encouraging words, feature suggestions and bug reports. Couldn’t have done this without you all

We’re wondering if it’s actually useful to have another virtual software keyboard on a phone that already has a very good hardware keyboard – but it might just be useful for typing short texts. If you want to give it a shot, you can find installation instructions in the discussion thread.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it.
