One-Click Thumbnails File Deleter

Over the past year, there have been some big changes here at XDA. Some of these are very apparent, such as the new 2013 template. Others are a little less apparent, like the expansion of the Recognized Developer program. Often, these new roles have helped guide new contributors in getting their start with application development.

This has been the case with XDA Recognized Contributor ppero196. Armed with the right tools for development, ppero196 created an app to simplify the removal of those pesky thumbnail files that stack up in DCIM/thumbnails. The simple deleting of pictures does not remove these files, so over time a considerable amount can stack up and that wastes precious storage space. Now, thanks to ppero196 and his new app, these files can be deleted with one-click ease.

If this app interests you or you just want to show your support, head on down to the application thread!

Microsoft To Invest in Cyanogen’s Future OS War?

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems. This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...
