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.
Run Programs by Name with WinMoRun
While there are a few ways to run applications in Windows Mobile, many people have always missed the good old fashioned Start>Run in Windows. XDA member theq86 has just released the first version of his program, which basically cures your nostalgia. It is a run tool that allows you to start any application installed on your device by typing its name. This is particularly useful for when the app in question has no icons or shortcuts.
The app currently works on any version of Windows Mobile above 6.0. The dev is looking for feedback on how to make it better, so your ideas are welcomed.

It’s just a little app but I find it useful.
It runs on Windows Mobile > 6.0
If you have ideas to improve this app just let me know.
You can find more information in the application thread.

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...
