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.
HTC Sensation Notification Icons Pack for Android
It is very interesting to see a new section born and how it starts to grow. This is the case of the HTC Sensation, where XDA member Fightspit posted the very first notification icons collection pack. Inside, you will find a large variety of Gingerbread 2.3 static notification icons in many different color combinations. You can even find some animated ones as well. The icons should work for Android 2.1 and up, just follow the instructions on how to properly push them.
If you liked it, please leave your feedback.

Please note that these icons are from Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
If you want to use them in a ROM with Android 2.1.x (Eclair) or 2.2.x (Froyo),
you have to move the icons from the systemUI.apk folder (in the zip file below) to your framework-res.apk and com.htc.resources depending on your ROM.

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...
