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.
Cyclonezephyrxz7 created a great application: a very useful and free alternative to those expensive contact backup applications. It will backup and export your contacts and SMS messages.
This program includes:
- A super-simple, lightweight GUI
- The Ability to backup Contacts and SMS
- Three modes of exporting: TXT and CSV and VCF
- A comand-line based version of the GUI program
- First, run the app and you will see 3 areas : What you want to output, the output format, and the folder to write to.
- Select what you want to ouput
- Make sure to ONLY PUT THE FOLDER in the folder text box, or you will get errors or weird results…
- Once set up, click export, and the application will do its thing!
- If you want to use the command-line feature, then just run the same EXE as for the GUI with parameters afterwards (see documentation)
Continue on to the application thread.

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...
