HTC Sense android 2.2 leaked and fully functional!

Htc has been stating that they will be introducing their  HTC Sensed-up version of Android 2.2 ever since it was revealed at the Google IO back in May.  HTC Sense is the custom layer that they add to their Android phones, which improves on the already existing features of Android.

Htc Desire owners have been eagerly awaiting the new update with its delicious new performance boost through the Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler and the awesome Mobile Hotspot features.

A leaked Froyo Sense build for the Htc Droid Incredible has been discovered and been made available to the public thanks to the wonderful guys at XDA . Unlike many previous leaked ROMS this Froyo build is  fully functional with all the new HTC additions such as HTC Flashlight, Radio widget, 3G mobile hotspot widget and much more, check it all out here.

Best Android apps: Dropbox

Dropbox is a one of my favourite apps on Android.  It allows you to simply drag and drop files into a folder on your computer and have them sync straight to your phone. This makes transferring new pictures or documents to your phone  a lot easier, no more emailing it to yourself or having to put in on the SD card.
