Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
New HTC Messaging Client Versions
XDA member pyrorob decided to provide to all of us the latest versions of HTC messaging client for Windows Mobile devices translated into English. This is based on oriental device huashan’s work similar to our Leo.
Tha cab files were initially meant for WVGA resolutions, but members have reported that it is also working on VGA resolutions as well.
Be sure to read and understand all the instructions before installing to avoid any problems.

[APP] Newest HTC Messaging Client versions by Pyrorob.
Ok, so, I was providing this in the HD2 apps forum and it kept being suggested to me to start my own thread, so, im thinking.. why do that just there? Its for wvga devices and people use it on multiple ones, so why not post it somewhere that everyone can see it?
So, what I’m going to be doing, is providing the newest versions here in cab and ext if requested.
Also, I’ll try to provide some extra cabs here every once in awhile (like network settings,graphics tweaks,etc.).
Now, some advice:
now for the people that are having problems installing/upgrading, the most common reason is due to the fact that if you had the client installed before, it installs a service, which is an actively running dll that runs in the background (like an openly running exe, BUT IT IS NOT AN EXE!) you have to shutdown the dll to overwrite it or you will face issues.
Now in energy roms, you can go to start/tools/ and open task manager, after it loads, touch in the top right where the little arrow is and go to “services” NOT PROCESSES, find “messaging service” and touch and hold on it and set it for manual and soft reset.
If the client was installed by you, then go to remove programs and uninstall it, soft reset,then install the client you want.
if it was pre-installed, just install.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
