This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see? While we've got a lot of leaked information from the highly expected S6 and M9, there is still a lot to learn about both - and about everything else that will be shown. What kind of trends will...
TrackMe for Google Earth & Maps Now in Windows Phone 7
If you come from the golden age of Windows Mobile, sure you`ll remember the tracking tool TrackMe, a GPS tracker that according to it`s creator, uses the location services on your phone to retrieve your current position. The information can be used for displaying tracks in real time or pre-recorded with Google Earth, Maps, or similar tools where you can also export your data to other formats. XDA member _LEM_ now presents the Windows Phone 7 version, which while it does not come with all the features WM used to have, it is very stable and functional according to members using the app. If the dev finds people interested in this app, he will continue to develop it to get the missing functionality from the WM version.
Get it for free in the usual place and if you like it, please leave your feedback.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
TrackMe uploads your data to a server. If you don’t have an internet connection or you prefer not to use it while you are tracking, you can store your data locally on your phone and upload it later when an internet connection is available. You can use my server (free of charge) for uploading your data. TrackMe is already configured to use this server by default.
HOW CAN I VIEW MY DATA?
Once your data is uploaded you can view it by going to http://luisespinosa.com/trackme and using the web viewer for Google Maps developed by the community. You can also export your data to a KML or GPX file and use Google Earth or any other tool that accepts that format. Remember that you cannot view or export your data until is has been uploaded to the server.

Last week, I wrote about the best apps to unleash the raw photographic power of your Lollipop smartphone. All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
