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.
Aroma Installer Gets its First Port to Samsung Galaxy SL
Awhile ago, we told you about a pretty nifty tool called the Aroma Installer that gives users the choice to install pretty much whatever application or mod that they want onto their ROMs. The best part about the Installer is that it is open source, so it could be ported at any time.
This brings us to the Samsung Galaxy SL i9003, which got itself a port of the awesome installer courtesy of XDA Member TheFrankenstain. The build is a beta release and still needs a few things fixed, but so far the project looks fairly stable.
The features added to this iteration of Aroma include:
-Bravia Engine (is in MIUIv8)
-Vurrut Kernel v3
-MIUI v4 theme (Very nice)
-CPU Control addon
-added vurrut V3 kernel install
There are a few bugs, as to be expected with a beta release. Thus far the Installer only works with a specific build of MIUI and some of the smaller mods don’t install properly just yet. There is a push to get more developers in on the project to help fix bugs and make their ROMs compatible, so it could be only a matter of time before things get really rolling.
For more information, feature list, download link and discussion, check out the original thread. As usual, don’t forget to make a backup before attempting anything, you’ll be glad you did.

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. 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...
