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.
Membrain Recorder for Windows Phone 7
XDA member xosag presents this interesting recording application for your Windows Phone 7. Membrain will let you record only what you want to hear by calibrating to the ambient audio level and only recording when it detects noise above that threshold. Dropbox integration is provided for uploading your recordings easily. It’s perfect for times when you don’t have the chance to repeatedly press the stop and record button. For example, you can use it before you go to bed and listen to anything you talk in your sleep.
You can get if for free on the market.

For example, just set it before you go to bed, place your phone next to your bed, and listen to anything you said in your sleep the next morning!
Even better: if you ever need to move these recordings from off your phone, Dropbox integration is provided for uploading your recordings.

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...
