Jump and Roll Your Way to Victory with JumpnRoll for Android
Do you like jumping? How about rolling? How about a game that combines both of these in one entertaining package? XDA forum member fleckdalm has just released his debut game JumpnRoll, a simplistic and fast-paced platformer that sets you on an accelerometer-based quest sure to commandeer your spare time. Using simple, intuitive controlls, your goal is to collect as many points as possible, while taking down enemies in the process.
In the words of the developer:
JumpnRoll is my first android app and its currently beta.Its a game and the aim of the game is it to get as much points as possible by jumping on enemys! You can control the ball by tiltin your phone! There are some funny game modes which you can play if you reach enough points and other cool extras like a cannon to shoot at the enemys! It would be great if you could test the game.
I Hope you have much fun by playing! Please post any bug you find or if you want new features ask me!

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.
