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.
GPS: LocationAlarm for WM
XDA member brandi presents LocationAlarm for Windows Mobile devices. This particular alarm application with a nice UI design can wake you or notify based on location and not in alarm time, it will also let you know if you are out of signal for 10 minutes or more. Available in English, German, Spanish, French, Dutch and Italian languages. It can run with GPS and Triangulation as well.
Working on WM 6.5 and up for WVGA resolutions, but should work on VGA as well.
If you want to be a beta tester, invitations are open.

[APP][1.0][MUI] locationAlarm – GPS Alarm [W|Q|VGA][9.11.2010]
This is the initial release of my latest Application called locationAlarm.
This App can wake you when you really need it! Not based on Alarm Time as usual, but on the location you are in right now!
You surely have heard about this kind of alarm Clocks existing for Android or iOS and now it does for Windows Mobile too!
As special functions of this program, it does warn you if the signaling does not work for ten minutes, and your phone does not know its location anymore!
Also it will warn you with the alarm sound if the batterie level gets critical.
It does not only work with GPS but also with Traingualtion
The Gui again is fingerfriendly (of course) and does rely on the superb SenseSDK 1.39.
Donations are very Welcome!

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...
