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.
InvisiBright for Android
Here is a new application to fully control brightness on your Android device brought to you by XDA member dannygirsh. The dev presents InvisiBright, an invisible brightness adjustment utility which can be controlled from inside any application by either swiping across the screen or by tilting your device. The app will help you keep brightness at reasonable levels without leaving your current app, which will allow you save battery in the process. It has been tested on Droid, Droid 2, Droid X, Droid Incredible, Captivate, Fascinate, EVO 4G, Galaxy S, Desire, Desire HD, Xperia, MyTouch 3G, MyTouch 4G, Nook Color, Optimus One, and the Thunderbolt.

[APP] InvisiBright – Invisible Brightness Util!
Hey guys, I have an app out called InvisiBright and I’m looking for your feedback. Here’s a brief description:
Use search key hold or status bar shortcuts to activate an invisible overlay above any application. Then simply swipe anywhere to adjust the brightness quickly. Done!

Check it out!
