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.
Beta Testers Required for Visual Words App
Many blogs and forums display ‘clouds’ of words that represent the most commonly used tags on threads and articles, where normally the largest size word is the most common tag. XDA forum member pl.ayground has taken this concept and interestingly applied it to his Visual Words application.
The app, written for Android devices running Android 2.2 (FroYo) visualises your SMS inbox as a cloud of words – with size based on word usage. To control the word behaviour, there are six touch control places on the screen. The upper part controls the number of words, bottom part controls font sizes and the centre works when a logarithmical scale is selected in the options menu.
Although Visual Words is already published to the Market (available for free), the dev is looking for beta testers.
For more information, take a look at the application thread.

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