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.
Geolocation & Lost Phone App for Android
Here you have another application similar to MobileMe or htcsense.com for you Android 2.2 (and up) device. Promethium is a fairly responsive application developed by XDA member richbayliss that will let you show your device on a map and make the alarm sound, all via the web portal. Beta slots are limited, so hurry up to get one.
The latest version have an improved LiveTrack feature. The developer mentions that LiveTrack means the position is sent to the server roughly every 15 seconds by default, or at your pre-configured schedule. Having this feature on will affect your battery life, so make sure you haven’t got it switched on in the portal. Also, you can always check “Running Services” to see if it is running.

[APP] Promethium = Geolocation & Lost Phone App
I have created a geolocation app a bit like MobileMe or htcsense.com for any Android 2.2 device with Market. Allows you to show your device on a map and make the alarm sound, all via a web portal.
This site is the main portal, with a limited number of accounts. These will be BETA accounts as I need people to trial the system to get feedback etc. Currently the email address has to be unique, but doesn’t need to be a valid address, however this will be useful when you try and report issues.
Once you have signed up, the latest APK for the client application will be downloadable from the portal toolbar. This app will ask for the same login credentials used on the portal, and once connected you are ready to use the portal functions.
Check the site periodically, as I will allow more signups as the application progresses.
Please can we keep all bug reports within this thread, I would rather develop this in the open.
Continue to the original thread.

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...
