Aneesoft looks really useful – thanks for sharing.

NoSpamPlease

Don’t encourage that spammer. Click on his Disqus avatar and you’ll see that every comment he has made is in order to put a link to Aneesoft whether it’s relevant or not. Xiaoa is a comment spammer.

You left off the StackExchange site devoted to Android: http://android.stackexchange.c… I’m not a big fan of traditional forums and having to sift through all the inane and redundant “me too” posts in a forum thread to find the actually useful information. The stackexchange sites are a much more effective and efficient platform for Q&A and sifting through the noise.
