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?

RoadSMS… Now for WM!
You may remember not too long ago, we posted an article about an app for Android called RoadSMS. Basically the app lets you see what’s in front of you while you are texting.

The app has been successfully tested in the HD2. Drop by the thread and give some feedback to the dev so that he can improve the app’s performance and compatibility with other devices as well.
I’ve written in .NET an application which mimic Galaxy S RoadSMS app. Go to wm.vsdotnet.ch. Any feedback welcome.
You can find more information in the app thread.

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