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.
Major Update to Four in a Row HD
We originally wrote about this app back in June of last year. More recently we also featured its sibling project, Lines & Puzzles. Four in a Row has come a long way since we first covered it, boasting a rather impressive half a million installations and a top 20 position in the Play Store puzzle category. Needless to say, XDA Forum Member mocelet2000 is very happy with the reception his app has received.
Four in a Row recently received a major update incorporating a complete UI overhaul and the addition some new and more challenging puzzles, taking the total to over 300. On top of that, the application is now fully in keeping with the Android design guidelines, integrating the action bar and a page viewer to browse the puzzles. Probably the most appealing feature of the application is that it allows for no-signup online multiplayer, and it can match you against opponents of similar skill. Just hope you don’t get matched up with mocelot2000 himself, as I’d imagine he’s quite good.
Available for devices running Android 1.6 and above and completely free, this is well worth checking out if you’re a fan of puzzle games. Head on over to the application thread for more info.

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...
