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.
Kill Sense Automatically Upon Starting an App in WM with StartProgWOSense
Windows Mobile is a fantastic OS and the one of the best UIs for it is Manila/Sense. However, having such UI has a large toll on any device running it. Sense consumes quite a lot of resources and can make any app that is running on a Sense-equipped device, sluggish and even unresponsive. To solve this issue, XDA member cyber-junkie just created a script that will take care of this “little” problem. StartProgWOSense will do exactly as its name suggests. It automatically kills Sense upon starting an application. By disabling Sense, your device gets an extra whooping 20-30 MB of free ram to run what you are really looking to run.
The app can only be used on roms equipped with Sense and is only available for WVGA devices. the good news is that the app is multi-language. There is a limited free version available as well as a pro (donate) version also available. Make sure that you leave some feedback for the dev.
For all with WVGA screen and Sense (in Rom or installed separately) I can proudly present:
!Fixes most Ram-problems with installed HTC-sense!
! 20 – 30MB more free RAM by temporarily disabling HTC-Sense!
Runs on all Roms (not only WWE) with HTC-Sense!
Multilanguage – now inluding english and german language (more languages coming soon!)
You can find more information in the application thread.

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...
