Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
New Shopping List App Now Updated
It seems that shopping list apps are becoming increasingly popular, and this not so new app is being updated. The application is very similar to the many other shopping list based apps, but it does one thing the others don’t (for the most part), and that is to keep track of the cost. The recent update brought some new features like a slower save time, and fixes for non English countries.
I just finished developing an application to manage the shopping list (called MiCarrito) and I’d like you to test it and provide me with some feedback.
My intention is to publish it on the marketplace (It will be free, of course), but before that I wanted to test it with hardcore users like you, guys.
With MiCarrito you can:
. Sort the shopping list by product categories to make shopping easier and faster.
. Create recipes defining lists of ingredients. Add all the ingredients in a recipe directly to the shopping list.
. Sort product categories in the list to fit the path you usually follow in the supermarket.
. Develop new products and categories, and re-assign products to a different category.
. For each product you can select the unit of measure and its price.
. For each product you can see the quantity that you bought of that same product during the last week and the last month.
. Synchronize your shopping list with your partner or a friend.
. Once in the supermarket, you can move the products from the shopping list to the shopping cart/trolley. Besides, you can set the current price and see the price it was the last time you bought it.
. As you fill the cart you will see the number of products in it and total amount of your shopping.
Localized in English, Spanish, Russian, Deutsch, Polish, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, French, Hebrew, Danish, Chinese, Korean and Czech.
If this fits your need of a shopping buddy, you can get it in the application thread.

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
At the annual Game Developers Conference being held in San Francisco, NVIDIA announced the latest addition to its collection of devices, the NVIDIA SHIELD. Powered by the Tegra X1 ARM SoC, the SHIELD is a set-top box running Android TV at its heart. But since it is a NVIDIA device, it does things beyond the simple streaming and gaming that is expected in this age. The SHIELD can locally run and stream 4K content to a capable TV. It is compatible with existing...
