comment secure photos on server
If you generate a key clientside and encrypt/decrypt photos with it using a well known algorithm like AES and store the encrypted data on the server, an attacker isn't going to be able to do anything without the key. Hiding the algorithm is security through obscurity, which is a bad idea.

comment What kind of problems is an Android beginner likely to encounter in using Scala?
Admittedly I've only spend an afternoon playing with it, but I found it extraordinarily hard to get Scala working in Eclipse together with Android. I managed to get regular Scala programs to compile, but never in combination with Android. It's a shame there aren't more resources on it.

As a beginner, it may be a disadvantage that you'll have a harder time getting support, because not many Android developers use Scala.

comment Writing code based on code snippet from the internet without license
Thank you, I will indeed contact the developer. It looks like the file is part of a larger project licensed as GPL, so I might have to get him to sublicense it to me as MIT.
