HTC Strikes Back! Flyer, ChaCha, Salsa, Wildfire S, Desire S, and Incredible S Fora Added
Looks like HTC opened up the flood gates this past week at MWC (Mobile World Congress). They have introduced their upcoming line up, which explains why their performance was not as strong at CES. In any case, since we haven’t really had a whole lot coming from HTC lately (aside from the Inspire and the Thunderbolt), we felt that it was in the best interest of our community to try and get us moving with the current.

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...
