As I've said before, CyanogenMod (CM) custom theme support is just plain awesome, and today's example is no different. It's called NTSense, and as you can probably guess, it's a Sense-inspired theme created by nhnt11.

AT&T Gets A 4.3″ 4G Phone To Call Its Own – Introducing The HTC Inspire 4G

Eyeing the HTC Thunderbolt or EVO 4G with envy but stuck on AT&T? Fortunately, the carrier, which has a long reputation of not embracing Android (none of their Android phones can officially sideload apps) has just announced its next "superphone."

Thought the miniscule HTC Aria wouldn't be getting a bite-sized scoop of Froyo to call its own? Wrong! ls377 over at the Android Central Forums has packaged the leaked Froyo Sense RUU for the Aria into a flashable .zip file. There isn't really much else to say other than that you can flash it just like any other ROM (through Recovery Mode or through an app like ROM Manager) and that some users seem to be having issues with the Android Market.

Fancy Widget For Android Finally Returns After Cease & Desist From HTC And Months Of Disappearance

If there is one unique thing the HTC Sense UI brings to the table, it's definitely the clock/date/calendar widget. You know the one I'm talking about:

HTC most certainly brought the sexy, and those of us running alternate launchers (Launcher Pro, ADW, etc) or using phones without Sense, were getting kind of jealous. The solution came in the form of an app called Fancy Widget which mimicked the Sense widget almost to a tee, while adding a host of handy options:

The Direction Android Smartphones Are Headed, Why It Might Be Bad, And How Google Can Stop It
