HTC Amaze 4G Gets the Gift of Sense 4
Looks like Sense 4.0 keeps going down the 2011 line of devices, filling these devices with new life and a sense of continuity thanks to the wonderful work of some of our developers. The latest case took place earlier on Sunday as XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89 and his colleagues at Team Nightmare felt confident enough on their work to release it into the wild, granting the Amaze 4G users the option of adding yet another port to their arsenal of ROMs and options.
The ROM in question, much like with other early Sense 4 releases, has very few working features and most of them are nowhere near enough to be considered daily drivers—at least for the early ports that we have covered in their alpha states. Although it still has a long way to go, the devs got this to boot, and there are a few other things working such as Bluetooth, which hardly ever works right off the bat, as well as the touchscreen. However, nothing else seems to work properly at the moment.
Keep in mind, once again, that this is by no means a finished build. So, please share what you can find in terms of bugs with the devs so that the build can be improved and the quest for Sense 4.0 can be fulfilled.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
