Thanks. I went to opera store and searched. There seems to be many tubemate apps by different developers. There is even a tubemate pro. Which one do I choose? Any security risk associated?

Cyanogenmod is the only 'stable' ROM for Grand Duos.
I had researched a million web pages to find a suitable ROM, but they had major problems with network connectivity and calling features.
I had read in Feb that Cyanogenmod was coming out with a new version which would fix camera and dual sim issues.
But unfortunately my phone was pickpocketed in Feb. So I lost track (intentionally) of the idea of moving from Stock ROM.

Waiting for Grand Duos prices to drop to 15k level to buy it again.

On the other hand, how is Grand Duos Neo ? Anyone using this handset ?

The only deterrant for me is the Camera on the Neo. Primary Camera - 5MP; Secondary - 0.3 MP.

I am an avid casual mobile photographer and take many causal pics and selfies.
My Grand Duos with 8MP and 2MP served brilliant. Is the Neo's camera upto that mark ?

I didn't see a Demo piece of this handset in any mobile store, so thinking.

Advice.

Here you go, here's the link to the tubemate site. You can download the apk from any of the links they have posted.

http://m.tubemate.net/

AFAIK, there is no paid 'Pro' version of the app. I have been using it for 2 years now without any security issues, so should be fine. Just make sure you don't download any fake apks.

Post Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Anyone here uses Sony Xperia Z Ultra?
I am looking for a tablet-cum-phone, so large size is no problem.

It is expensive, but I would gladly pay for a superior display experience.

Any feedback?

Thanks! I'll try installing CM Mod on the phone sometime next week. Looks like they're yet to release an official ROM, so I'll have to stick with the unofficial single SIM ROM. Will let you guys know how it works out (hopefully I won't brick it).

I have started jogging in a park near to my home. I generally circle the park 5-6 times, but I don't know the distance I am jogging. Is there any android app which calculates jogging / running distance using GPS?

Runtastic would be a great choice for this.

So guys day before yesterday I removed DU ROM as I was facing a battery drain issue in the latest builds. So installed Resurrection Remix ROM for Galaxy S3. The experience so far had been awesome. It is buttery smooth and got a battery life of 1d 2hrs and screen on time of 4hrs. I am using boeffla kernel for CM.

I have been using Cardiotrainer since last two years that came pre installed with my moto defy. It's light with good features including music integration and cloud back up. Briefly tried Nike running, but found it rather resource hungry and a battery drainer. So switched back to cardiotrainer.

I don't think this is available at Play store India site. However do a Google search for apk file or find one at apk4fun.com. You may install this apk on your tab/phone. Even editable versions are now available.. Only hitch is that it will not allow save files locally but to our one drive and office 365 account only.
