Soft Screen Tuner Allows for Permanent RGB, Sharpness and Contract Tweaks

Too often you’ll see a review that says that a screen looks a little washed or that the whites look a little blue or even that the blacks look a little green. Following that thought, there aren’t many ways of fixing such a problem when it does occur.

XDA Member wql seeks to end that problem with an app called Soft Screen Tuner. The application requires root and has been tested and is confirmed working on the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note. It may work on other devices as well, so it can’t hurt to try if you don’t happen to own those particular devices.

The app allows users to change the RGB tones on the device, as well as sharpness, contrast, color temperature and saturation across the movie, dynamic and standard color settings. What makes this application unique is that it is not a running service. Once you make these changes, they take effect immediately and, even if you uninstall the application, the settings will remain.

If this is something you think you’d like to check out, you can head on over to the app’s thread where you can find the download link, screenshots and discussion. Of course, make a backup before attempting, just in case something goes askew.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

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....

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

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.
