Keep Your (And Others’) Tasks in Check with TimeAct
Some people are blessed with the ability to commit a lengthy collection of tasks to memory, without forgetting to take care of one (usually the most important in my case). The rest of us aren’t so lucky, and generally need to rely on a list. There are numerous task management solutions available for Android, ranging from quick and simple plain text lists to feature filled apps that will help you keep your entire life in check. If you’re looking for something that places itself in the middle of those two extremes, TimeAct might well be worth a look.
Created by XDA Forum Member eyeballgames, TimeAct will not only allow you to create lists and perform all the usual functions you would expect from such an application, but it also offers the ability to synchronize them across multiple devices and even with other people for group tasks. This means that you can create projects and assign tasks to others on the fly, and the entire group’s task list will be updated after syncing. There are also a couple of different widgets to let you see the status of a task directly from your home screen.
The application itself is a continuation of a web-based task management system of the same name. If you’d like to find out more then check out the forum thread.

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.
