If you're used to downloading and installing nightly builds of CyanogenMod, Android's most popular custom ROM, you may have noticed that since the beginning of this month, the nightlies haven't really been... well, nightly.
A major hack of kernel.org, the home of the Android source code which is still down to this day, has derailed the process of building nightlies. Now that the Android source has moved to github.com/android and Chris Soyars has made the necessary changes to fix the build bot, the nightly builds are finally back.
Yay - download away, folks!

Photo syncing is not a novel idea at all - there are countless solutions that do it on a regular basis, but instant photo uploading the moment it is taken is something I've been looking forward to for a long time. And now it's here, thanks to Chris Soyars, aka ctso - one of the senior CyanogenMod developers.
Chris's new app, DropSnap, has a very simple purpose - get your photos synced up to the cloud the moment you take them. I'm not exaggerating - it really is that fast (of course, depending on your data connection). For example, on Wi-Fi, freshly snapped pictures were synced to Dropbox and back to my computer before I could open my mouth and say "Android rocks".
