Mod your EVO Taskbar with Smooth Sense

If you like the original HTC Sense look and feel but think some of the icons could be smoothed out with a few more frames, or they just generally could be improved whilst keeping in the same design vein, you may want to try this set out on your HTC EVO 4G.

Originally designed by XDA forum member jercik for the HTC Desire, member faster3200 liked the mod so much, that he ported them over for the HTC EVO 4G using the EVO icon set.

Changes include the battery icon which now shows 101 power levels with % indicator as well as a smooth charging animation, animated synchronisation icon, 2 additional frames on the GPS acquiring animation, new download and upload animations, and new adb, no sim and notify SD card icons.

Note that his is a framework-res.apk mod so may erase any previously applied themes, however faster3200 has kindly offered to send a compatible version if you PM a link to your applied theme.

For more information and to download the mod, visit the forum 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...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

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...
