More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative.

HTC Sensation ICS Camera Mod Brings True 1080p Video Recording and More
One of the tougher things when working with future Android versions that haven’t yet been released for a device is getting all the features that worked on prior Android versions working on the new ones. Things like camera, 4G data, Bluetooth, and MMS are the kinds of features that take more time to port than things like 3G data and sound. Thankfully, they usually do get ported and it’s a very, very good day when they do.
For those running ICS on an HTC Sensation, your cameras can now function even better than ever thanks to a modification by XDA Forum Member NODO-GT. The mod, which is flashable over ClockworkMod Recovery, allows the HTC Sensationto record uncompressed video and audio. It not only allows for full 1080p video recording but also includes:
1080p Video Recording in 20mbps!
Increased Video Recording Quality
Rebuild Camera App
0 Compression on JPG Images.
Increase size cap of Images.
Improved Quality of Images.
This removes a lot of the issues with HTC Sensation camera quality, so users who often use their phone cameras should definitely consider giving this one a try to see if it has the intended effect of creating higher quality videos and photos.

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...
