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.
Add Some Blue Style to Your MIUI Torch App
Sometimes it’s the little touches that can make or break a product’s user experience. Torch applications are apparently no exception to this. Thanks to the work of XDA forum member demo23019, the MIUI Torch application has now had some style injected into it.
By changing the color scheme from a ghastly orange to a soothing blue, the theme maker was able to bring a modern touch to the otherwise simple app. If you’re a MIUI user, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give this a shot! Even if you’re not running MIUI, a user has reported success on CyanogenMod 7.
In the words of the modified app’s creator:
For anyone who is using MIUI i changed up the orange to blue for the theme I made and figured id share…enjoy
This will not flash it has to be pushed into system/app/ directory make sure you backup old torch with titanium or just save to SD card… if someone can make a flash-able version i wont stop you
*UPDATE… someone confirmed it working on CM7*
Be sure to continue on to the application thread to get started. Also, if you’re daring enough to try this on a non-MIUI ROM, be sure to post your experiences.

However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
