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.
Free Offline Barcode Scanner for WP7
One type of app, and really a whole concept, that has taken off in the lat couple of years is the ability to get information out of barcodes. Whether it is a QR code, or a regular barcode like the ones we see in food, books, and virtually every product on this planet, they all hold certain information and the ability to access that information via our online capable devices is somewhat invaluable. Since Android and iPhone were already in this game, Windows Phone 7 had to be in it as well. So, XDA member sensboston decided to make one himself. This scanner is free of charge and while rather basic, it allows you to use it even if you are not connected to the internet.
So, if you are missing this kind of free app from your old Android device, make sure that you get this app. Any feedback is highly appreciated.

You can find more information in the application thread.

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...
