Mount2SD Brings All-In-One SD-Ext Script Editing

There is a lot of scripting fun to be had with Android. Whether it be init.d or a build.prop tweak or even built into the framework and SystemUI files, developers have put scripts into every nook and cranny of Android with each method having its advantages and disadvantages.

Most rooted Android users have heard of Apps2SD, a script that moves your apk files to your SD card to save space on the internal memory. However, a script set that is a tad more obscure are the scripts that move items to and from the SD-ext partition on the SD card. XDA Senior Member dk_zero-cool released Mount2SD, the all-in-one answer to everyone’s SD-ext moving concerns.

Mount2SD has taken pretty much every script out there dealing with the SD-ext partition and moved it into one easy to understand GUI for users to take full advantage of the many possibilities of SD-ext. Some of the functions include moving:

Apps
System Apps
Dalvik Cache
Data
Cache
TmpFS Cache

There are several more functions as well that will take pretty much whatever you want and move it to the SD-ext partition to save space and, in some cases, may even increase performance.

For additional information, download links, a full feature list with instructions on use and user discussion, check out the Mount2SD thread. As usual, before using any of the scripts, be sure to make a backup.

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.
