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.
Icon Set Aelous HD for Android
It´s always nice when we find new nice icons for our Android devices. This time, XDA member Raadius presents his third icon set called Aelous HD containing more than 40 original 125×125 icons for use with launchers such as Go Launcher, Sweeter Home, ADW Ex, or with ROMs like MIUI. The developer has included in this set the .PSD files, so you can make your own creations. You will find the most common icons such as Facebook, Gmail, and Tweeter among many more.
Please let us know if you liked it or if you have any suggestions.

Thanks to everyone, the support has been very appreciated. Thanks to xda-developers.com and the members in the beta who helped me test the icon set. Thanks for the preview build comments as well.
This is my third icon set, which has been the most fun creating by far. I started from scratch, with a base template and shadows that I have created myself. I also wanted to detail the icons as much as possible, more than my previous icon sets, which I think I have succeeded. Included in this set is the .PSD so you can make your own extension of Aeolus HD.
The set contains 44, 125×125 icons in .PNG format. Some of the icons have alternates. The set may be used as a theme for launchers such as ‘Go Launcher’, ‘Sweeter Home’, ‘ADW Ex’ or roms such as MIUI. I will be creating a special MIUI themed ROM though so stay tuned.
Please read the included Readme.txt and if you have any questions, please do so!

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". 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...
