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.
Ice Cream Sandwich Launcher
We started to see the first ICS ROMs on a few devices but for the majority, ports are not available just yet. In the meantime, you can test a launcher that simulates the UI of the upcoming OS. It features:
– ICS Wallpaper Chooser with 9 wallpapers
– Hide Notification Bar (Gesture/Swipe up)
– ICS Settings
– ICS Styled Google Search Bar
– Icy Blue ICS Analog clock
– Hide Labels
It claims that if you have a proper set up, the launcher is extremely fast and smooth.
So, if you can´t wait for ICS, this a is good placebo in the meantime, which you can find it in the usual place.
Let the dev know about your experiences with the launcher by leaving a comment. Thanks for reading.

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...
