Manage Data on Your Android Device With NES

So, you think you can install 37 apps on a single day? You are down to 36 and the next thing you know, your Android device gives you a little pop up telling you that you do not have enough space available to install it. What the…? In essence, the data partition used by Android in your device gets pretty full from time to time, but there really isn’t anything built in to let you know what app is the culprit. XDA member cyansmoker has developed an app, for which he is looking for people to help beta test. The app will allow the user to see which apps or folders are taking the largest amount of space, and will allow you to move them around (to a storage card for instance). The dev also claims that the app can also wipe Dalvik cache.

If you feel like lending a hand for this useful new app, please let the dev know with some feedback. Keep in mind that you must be rooted.

About this application

This application’s goal is to help you understand and possibly work around a common vexation of using Android; i.e. these messages:

“not enough space”
“Low on space. Application data space is low.”

You can find more information in the application thread.

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
