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.
Sink Your Enemies (or Parents) with Navy Battle 3D
We all love good old fashioned board games. One that has seen many variants over the years while being ported to virtually every mobile platform due to its time killing appeal is Battle Ship. In this case, XDA Forum Member lemp brings us another version of the timeless classic. The premise of the game is the same as the original: You guess the location of your enemy’s hidden ships and you try to sink them by blindly shooting at a grid array—simple, fun, and entertaining.
Navy Battle 3D is built from the ground up, with good 3D animations and graphics along with special options that can be purchased in-game such as the ability to have a multi-player volley with your friends and family over WiFi (WLAN party!), specialty weapons (takes some of the “guessing” out of the equation), and more. The best part is that the game is completely free and ad-free as well, so no intrusive pop ups will get between you and your mom’s battleship. Lastly, according to the dev, the game supports multiple resolution and works great on lower end devices, which means that it no longer matters if you have a HTC One X or a G1, you will be able to play this game with ease and smoothly.
The developer has provided a few codes to unlock special features in the game, exclusive for XDA community members! So, if you feel like having some good, clean fun while testing something new, please take a quick crack at this game and provide some feedback for the dev if you can.
Based on the classic game Battleship, NavyBattle 3d uses the same rules: You put your 5 ships on your grid and you try to sink the ships of the opponent.

However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
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...
