Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
µIRC Client for WM
XDA member Wr4i7h along with a friend are in the process (and have been for a while) of developing an open source IRC client for WM. The project, according to the dev, is still in early stages but functional enough to do basic functions such as chatting. So, if you like being on IRC and like XDA’s IRC channel, give this app a go and make sure to leave some feedback for the developer as well.
Hello. I am announcing this project here in hope of gathering feedback from the XDA-dev community. A friend of mine and me have been developing this app for a while now, and we think it has reached a point where it is quite usable and presentable.

Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
