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 Power to GoSMS using Xposed
Despite the fact that Hangouts has become the default SMS application on Android since the arrival of KitKat, other messaging applications are still very popular. Alternative applications have tons of configuration options, and often feature added capabilities like scheduling, auto replying, and theme support. One such client is GoSMS, a legendary messaging app, which has been very popular for at least 2 years.
Even such great application like GoSMS can be refined here and there. A few useful capabilities have been added by XDA Senior Member elesbb, who created an Xposed Module that adds some extra mojo to the app. For example, with this module you can close the main window of the application by tapping send, while double tapping send won’t automatically close the main window. There are many other features such as how the keyboard can be set to auto hide after sending a message. As this mod comes in the form of an Xposed module, your phone must be rooted and have Xposed Framework installed in order to play.
More information about this module can be found in the module thread. This is a good place to start if you want to improve your GoSMS experience.

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