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....
SenseTasks – A Sense Styled Tasks Replacement
Depending on how long you have had WM devices, you will have to agree with the fact that many of them have not changed neither in style nor functionality. Tasks, which is part of Outlook allows you to schedule tasks, write notes, among other things without actually setting them up in the calendar. Despite the relative usefulness and versatility of this app, it was never too popular because of the unfriendliness to create, schedule, or even delete entries. XDA member Tumys decided to re-work this application and released a new version based on SenseSDK to give the app a brand new look and feel. This is meant to replace the Task application in your device and make your life easier when setting them up. While there are no major issues reported with it, feel free to leave a comment in the dev’s thread.
SenseTasks is an application to manage your Outlook Tasks
This application intends to replace the original Windows Mobile task application, utilizing the SenseSDK to create a HTC Sense Look and Feel.
I created this application because the Windows Mobile task application is not very finger-friendly to use. Furthermore, the WM application didn’t allow me to create new tasks on my HTC HD Mini with Windows Mobile 6.5.3. After experimenting with eboelzner’s SenseSDK, I decided to create this application.
Many thanks to eboelzner for creating the fantastic SenseSDK!

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.
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...
