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.
Logcat No More Thanks to Log This
Logcat is an unquestionably important tool. Not only do logs help end-users figure out what’s going wrong with their Android-powered smart phones, but they also help developers figure out what’s going wrong with end-users’ smart phones. Unfortunately, many of the same users who experience issues either don’t have the SDK installed or don’t know how to get started.
In order to alleviate this issue, XDA forum member Mgamerz has created Log This, a user-friendly debug application. By providing a simple-to-use GUI, Log This allows even the most inexperienced Android users to generate error logs. In the words of the developer:
I know there is an app called Log Collector already but I want to create some additional features.
Some new features that will be coming soon:
- Three Click Logs – click on a file, accept the preview, click send. (file association)
- Kernel Logs by themselves.
I plan to update it with more features soon… An idea I have is that it will auto-run when a user opens a file (like how a .doc file can open quickword, for example) that will auto fill both fields and fill out the email information – but it will /never/ auto send (that’s a violation of trust)
Continue on to the application thread. Developers take note, as this will probably be instrumental in saving headaches down the line.

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...
