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....
System App Installer Makes It Easy to be Lazy on Galaxy Y
Some of the greatest true innovations came about so people could be more lazy. Of course, not everything that is spawned by laziness is on the list. However, laziness has always been a good motivator to finding an easier, faster way of doing something.
There is now a tool for Samsung Galaxy Y users that helps those who are lazy. The tool is called System App Installer, and it was released by XDA Senior Member hmahadi98. It’s a useful tool for lazy people who don’t want to move an app to /system and go through the process of setting permissions. As hmahadi98 explains:
Are u lazy to move app in system/app/ and set permission?? And convert user app 2 system app and most of them don’t work??
Then u should try this app..
This app is very useful for me,it install any app in system…
In addition to installing apps to /system, the tool also comes with a built in file manager that serves as the UI. It’s important to note that some apps simply won’t work as system apps, and some will refuse to install. Those that do work can be moved by this app. A little kicker is that you don’t need to reboot once you’re done. Just use the tool and start using the app.

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...
