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.
Manage Your Files with Tomi File Manager
In many respects, Android is quite the complete OS, but even the most complex and carefully planned projects have weak spots. Stock Android lacks a competent built-in file manager, making it difficult to perform basic operations like moving files as well as more advanced tasks. Luckily, there are a plethora of file managers available for Android. One such offering is Tomi File Manager by XDA Forum Member uuOuu.
Tomi File Manager offers everything that would be expected from a solid file manager. It has a nice user interface, and it is able to categorize your files into music, pictures, videos, documents, and apps. You can also browse your files without categories if you prefer. The only glaring omission (for now) seems to be the lack of root support, leading to the inability to modify your /system partition, but hopefully this is added in a future build.
The application is still in its beta stage, but users looking for a good non-root file manager can try it out nonetheless. You can obtain the APK file from the original thread.

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.

Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
