Want a Fully Featured Facebook App for Android?

XDA member keridel is petitioning for a new and improved version of the Facebook app for Android. Android is one the fastest growing OS’s and with such a large user base connected to social media outlets such as Facebook we demand a robust solution to keep up with the latest social news of our friends and family. As quoted from the petition page:

I have created a group on Facebook to try and get the site to listen to our pleas.
The android OS is now number 2 in (the smartphone) market share behind Symbian and yet we have possibly the most appalling app ever.

you cant use the new Places feature, you cant chat, you cant even tag photos! (something you have been able to do since facebook started)

this to me just doesnt seem right. we deserve a decent app. I know that a lot of the devs on here could make a better app but why should they? the Fruit based phone that shall not be named has had a good app from the beggining and has the new Places added to it straight away.

so i am asking that anyone from the site who loves Facebook and Android and wants to see them paired correctly please come and join us at:

If you want to learn more about this and sign the petition, please check out the original thread and the Facebook group if you are interested in supporting this idea.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

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.
