Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
AppMan for Xperia Arc Brings Mass Modification Download Interface
Sometimes it can be a real hassle finding all the mods and tweaks you’re looking for. Going through thread after thread to see what’s what, what works what’s compatible with your ROM. Even then, you have to download it, put it on your device and flash it. Getting a good set of mods can take some time and effort. That’s why some developers create applications that house mods and tweaks in one place—so users can simply window shop through, download what they want, and flash it.
Now the Sony Xperia Arc has one of these apps thanks to AppMan by XDA Recognized Developer pvyParts. With the app, Xperia Arc users on stock ICS ROMs can do a variety of things to their ROMs from a nice, simple interface.
The application has quite a few nice features. All of the stock applications are in it, so users can bloat or de-bloat their ROMs all they want to. Additionally, other developers can add their work to the application through pvyParts so various mods and scripts can be added at any time along with what’s already there. In the cases where users are debloating or bloating their ROMs, the application is simply deleted or it can be installed as soon as it’s done downloading. In other cases, users simply download what they want and flash it in recovery. Very easy to use.

Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
