PDroid Manager, the PDroid App Alternative

If you haven’t heard of PDroid by now, you should probably look into it. That said, thanks to XDA Forum Member FFU5y, users now have an alternative to the default PDroid 2.0 application.

While the framework and patches that make up the bulk of PDroid’s functionality on the back-end are still required and unchanged, FFU5y’s application is an open-source (hurray!) alternative to the front-end that allows users to control their applications’ access settings for better privacy management. The application is in alpha state and FFU5y is looking for feedback. However, it is functional. And with some patience, it can be a valuable tool for power users.

Having tested it out on my Galaxy Nexus I can say that while there are a few hiccups, the overall application is smooth and does what it sets out to do. Of course, if you’re interested in supporting an excellent open-source application, head on over to the original thread and give this a go. Don’t forget to submit reports on any bugs you may find!

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
