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.
PacMap: Location Based PacMan
If you’re looking for a modern spin on the classic game of PacMan then try out PacMap. PacMap was made by XDA member bompo. The app is a location based game that uses GPS to track your location. How it works is you turn it on then move around the city you are in to eat the dots, but watch out as the ghosts will follow you! Here is a quote from the OP:
PacMap is a location-based game for Android phones.
To play the game you need a GPS signal and a working internet connection. There also have to be some streets nearby.
Your goal is to eat all the dots. For each dot you will get a point. But beware! Ghosts will try to catch you. Try to avoid them as long as possible.
It looks very well done and is on the market for free. This is a public beta test so there may be bugs, please report any in the discussion thread. Enjoy!

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