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.
Tweedle: Fast, Free, Clean, and Efficient Twitter Client
If you like your applications to be lightweight, simple, and fulfil their main purpose without being bogged down by a load of unnecessary bells and whistles, Tweedle is one to check out. It’s a Twitter client developed by XDA Member HandlerExploit due to the need for, in his own words, “a better, cleaner and faster Twitter client for Android.”
The application itself is exactly that—clean looking (almost vaguely reminiscent of the MetroUI), and quite fast. While it’s still at a very early stage of development, with some features yet to be added, this is a fantastic app that has a great deal of potential. All the basic twitter functionality is there, but some functions such as retweets with comments and filtering are currently missing. In the longer term, the developer states that the app will receive tablet support, multiple account support, configurable pages, and a widget. There is one rather notable feature that is already included in the app though, and that is the ability to change the color scheme to one of your choosing via a color picker.
The app is ad-free, will run on Android 2.1 and above, and can be found in its application thread.

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...
