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.
ClockSync – Synchronise Device Time via NTP
Does your Android device suffer clock lag or lead? Does your network operator not support time synchronisation via Network Identity and Time Zone? If so, then why not try out XDA forum member CrazyCoder‘s ClockSync app?
ClockSync synchronises your Android device time with the Atomic time using the Network Time Protocol (which is designed to synchronise computer clocks over a network) over your data or Wi-Fi connection.
The app can synchronise your device time automatically or manually.

- Displays atomic reference time, system time, clock offset and current date or last synchronisation time
- Gets atomic time from the user specified NTP server
- Update offset by tapping on the Atomic time or Local offset values on the screen
- Tapping on the system time will synchronise the device clock with the Atomic clock
- Update/synchronise actions are also available from the application menu
- Automatic synchronisation on user specified interval (battery efficient!)
- Options to synchronise only via Wi-Fi or when device is already awake
- Optional haptic feedback when tapping on the active screen elements
- am/pm and 24-hour time display based on the system setting

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...
