Manage Your Storage Space with the Open Source Mounts2SD

Not too long ago, we featured a brief guide aimed at helping users use Link2SD in order to increase apparent internal memory. The program cited, however, is only one of various options that can connect your /data and /sd-ext paths. Mounts2SD by XDA Recognized Contributor dk_zero-cool accomplishes this, and also provides users with heaps of additional functionality that you may find useful.

Starting life out as a simple SD-Ext script (without the use of symlinks), Mounts2SD’s functionality has grown considerably. In addition to the script itself, there is an app that serves as the front end, allowing you to easily view the configuration and more. It also has grown in core functionality to control your swap space, mount optimizations, cache, and much more. Naturally, the original functionality is still present. You are still able to move data between /data and /sd-ext. But now, you have additional options to move content to other folders such as /data/media or a combination of locations.

Head over to the application thread to get in on the action. And if you’d like to look at the sauce, head over to the project’s Github.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

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.
