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.
Interview With Recognized Developer capychimp pt. 3 of 3 Final
Now we arrived to the final part with XDA Recognized Developer capychimp. We hope you have enjoyed this as much as we did.
orb3000: Are you planning to cook for other HTC devices in the future? If so, which ones?
capychimp: Yes already started, together with my team mate we started RCMix Aztec a ROM for HTC Sensation, I am considering doing something for EVO 3D too but unsure still.
orb3000: We are aware that HTC is releasing new dev stuff, how will this help your work?
capychimp: The Sense SDK, on my guess will be a way for devs to integrate their apps better in the Sense world, maybe it can give a better understanding on how sense functions, but for now I think it will not do much, but I am open minded and will check it out.
orb3000: Tell us a bit of capy outside of XDA, what you do for living?
capychimp: The capy outside XDA is a simple married guy, who works on traffic control of trains in Denmark, making sure everything drives safe and nothing goes bad, so pretty far from the world of android.
orb3000: Finally, do you think an HTC operating system may come in the future? How do you see the future of mobiles?
capychimp: HTC operating system, no I don’t think we will see that, HTC got a good foot with Android and many users like Sense, I am one of them, I tried use aosp no man, too simple looking for me.
The future of mobiles is hard to judge, we get more interactive, as we can see front cams are jumping back in the game, 3D phones popping up, so I think the future will improve the things we have, I don’t think we get much new in nearby future.
orb3000: Any final words or comments? What would you like to say to your Kingdom users?
capychimp: A final word… a huge thx to my team mate Robocik, for all the late nights on gtalk cooking well work together would be something I would like to say to devs, and for all the users I would like to say great with all your feedbacks, reports and tests and fixes, you all made kingdom what it is today seo, klquicksall, diamondback, flemmard, rmk all the devs are great too in some way all have helped each other, and that’s what gives us power to say hey HTC, Sense 3 did work on older devices!.
And a final thing, our poor fellow cook/chef Krzysiec, we hope to see you soon after your wedding in June.
orb3000: We appreciate your answers and are looking forward to speaking with you again in the future. Gracias!
Thanks to all our readers.

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...
