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.
Simplicity and Elegance with Note L!st
Note-taking should never be complicated. Note-taking apps should be light, with an easily navigable, simple, yet intuitive user interface. Big names such as Evernote sacrifice this simplicity for a plethora of features, which for many are unnecessary. It is with this, that Note l!st steps up to take note-taking back to simply note-taking.
Developed by XDA Forum Member Cubeactive, Note l!st’s core function is to jot down notes with simplicity and elegance. The user interface includes a main screen of folders, which can be traversed to create and access notes. Within a folder, notes are listed along with the date and day of creation. Long-pressing notes display various options such as view, edit, and share. The actual notepad is what you would expect: clean and clutter-less. There are also options to rate notes out of four stars, as well as a ‘completed’ check-box. Shortcuts can also be placed on home screens to create new notes quickly.
Note l!st is an extremely well-polished and elegant note-taking application for Android users looking for a small, easily manageable, and clutter-free note-taker. Cubeactive has made Note l!st free on the Play store. The app works with Android versions 2.2 and newer, on both phones and tablets. Visit 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...
