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.
Transformer Prime Receives No Guesswork Overclocking
We all knew that with the unlocking of the bootloader, would come a boost in development for the Asus Transformer Prime. Not only are there new mods being released every day, but there’s some apps and mods that are helping out our more novice community members.
XDA Forum Member DrWowe brings us an application that overclocks the tablet with nothing more than a click of a button. No tricky user interface to learn, and no guess work. The application, named EZOverClock, does as its name suggests and allows users to change their clock speed using the Asus status bar using pre-configured settings. This is done to allow anyone to overclock.
In the words of the developer:
Once this application is installed, you can switch speeds as usual using the ASUS statusbar. The speeds become (by default, but there is a configuration menu) as follows:
Power save: 1.0 ghz
Balanced: 1.3 ghz
Performance: 1.6 ghz
Naturally, root is required to run the application. For those who want an easy way to overclock without all the mess, please visit the application thread for additional details and download links.

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...
