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.
Horizontal CM7 Boot Animation
We have seen very cool and original boot animations as of recently, coming from the depths of our forums. This time, XDA member adam2010 brings us something refreshing for CM7 addicts… I mean users. Aside from a very smooth and blue-ish animation, which is classic for CM7, the boot animation actually is in landscape, so it actually makes better use of the screen’s real estate than their portrait counterparts. This is yet another way to show your love for your current rom. For those of you that are on the other immensely popular AOSP rom known as MIUI, adam2010 states that he is currently working on a horizontal one for that ROM as well.
Please share your thoughts about it and some feedback for the dev if you have any issues with it.
It’s time to show off your bootanimation to your friends and make them jealous of your android phone. May be it’s just me; I haven’t seen any horizontal bootanimation so far. Why should we have a small animation and ignore the rest of the screen?!
No matter what size screen you have, the NeoGlass bootanimation can fit it perfectly and it doesn’t lose quality. I have highly optimized the images and made the animation as smooth as possible. I hope you guys experience the same thing.
You can find more information in the boot screen 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...
