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....
Sense 3.0 Lockscreen for Any Phone!
I rarely like to post about graphical developments, they always seem anti-climactic. That goes for most graphical developments, though, and this isn’t one of them. The idea of being able to modify your lockscreen is quite a cool one, especially when the idea of replacing it with that of Sense 3.0.
As long as you run Android on your device, Agile Lock, posted by user xboxfanj and created by the SOLA team, allows you to change your current lockscreen to look and function like Sense 3.0. The app also has options to change fonts, font color, font size, background settings, shortcuts settings and much more.
It will be interesting to see what lockscreens will be added to this app in the future. Maybe you’ll be able to develop and use your own designs, using the app to run them without excessive coding knowledge.
I’ve been running the app on my phone for a few hours now and I have to say, it’s a fantastic idea which they’ve implemented very well. I can only recommend that you check it out, if you like the look and functionality of the Sense 3.0 lockscreen.
If you’d like to get the app for yourself, head on over to the original thread!

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.
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...
