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.
Profiled Reminders with Prof Reminder
Your phone doesn’t have an LED or translucent notification bar? Are you kind of bored of notification and ringtone customization on your smartphone? Do you want to be notified of incoming calls or messages only during certain times of the day? Well, good news, because now you can customize your notifications to your heart’s content with Prof Reminders.
Developed by XDA Forum Member dan_ru, Prof Reminder allow users to create profiles for different notification customization and settings, easily, and intuitively. Users can set profiles to react to phone calls, SMS or MMS or any permutation and combination of these 3 within user-defined time periods and battery levels along with optional time delays and intervals. Users can be notified by either default or customizable vibration patterns, ringtones, the camera’s flash, and by screen turning on. Calls can be filtered by ignoring ‘short’ calls, in which the rings are less than a user-defined interval of between 1 to 30 seconds. New profiles can be created by either a convenient wizard or a profile interface. Profiles can be disabled, duplicated, rearranged, and deleted upon long press, and there is also a handy ‘disable’ and ‘enable’ all button located in the top right hand corner.
Prof Reminder will certainly be of great use for many users. Its extensive notification customization from time period to vibration pattern is one testament of Android’s comparative strengths among the other mobile operating systems in the industry. Supporting Android versions 2.1 and newer, Prof Reminder can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So if you would like to know more, check out the original thread for more details.

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. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
