GMapPro for Windows Phone 7
XDA member vrassouli presents GMapPro for Windows Phone 7, an interesting application based in Joomla’s Google Map module with easy set up and customization that will let you browse the maps of Google, and is also capable of downloading and catching the maps for off line usage. The latest version features a list of downloads, so you can delete them in future, use the phone’s internal GPS to find you on the map, markers (tap and hold a location to put a new marker), calculate the direct distance between two points, and many more.
The developer is open to hear requests of new features or bugs found.

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.
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...
