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.
ScoreKeeper Plus Brings Score Keeping and Other Tools Together
There are a lot of Android apps that help you keep score. However, those apps are generally for specific games. There are life total apps for card games like Magic or table top games like Dungeons and Dragons. There are score apps for games like spades and hearts. However, there aren’t a lot of games that allow users to encompass all of these games into a single app. Now, that may change.
ScoreKeeper Plus has a plethora of uses for such a simple application. Developed by XDA Forum Member sjb933, the app has all the tools and elements one needs in a universal scoring app. Some of the features include:
– support for individual and team-based scoring
– complete score history is retained for the entire game
– ability to undo through complete history
– ability to remember score increments (+5 every time, for example)
– quick access to both the dice roller and game timer
– ability to save/load games
This allows for a large number of games. Along with the game timer and dice roller, you can literally keep track of just about any game with just about any number of players. So if you’re looking for something to help keep track of life totals in a Magic: The Gathering game or using the timer to play a game of speed chess, this could be the app you’re looking for.

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...
