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...
BBQTools Team Releases Their Own Unofficial CM Updater App
The last time we brought you news about TeamBBQ it was to introduce BBQLog, an app that pulled change logs for CM ROMs. To continue on their set of tools for CM users, TeamBBQ has released a follow up application called BBQTools.
XDA Senior Member peterperfect posted about the BBQTools application on behalf of TeamBBQ. The app is similar to the CyanogenMod Updater in functionality, as it allows you to check for and download new updates of CM for your device. Some of the other features include:
Verify if you are up-to-date with your CyanogenMod release
Download the latest rom directly
pause/resume download (a first on this kind of program)
See if GApps are up-to-date and download updated ones
See changelog from Github AND gerrit (another first)
See general/kernel/radio changelog and upload them directly on the web
Have a tutorial section and a FAQ
Our team of expert answer question you ask
Access cyanogenmod statistics
Flash .zip package directly from the application
Wipe cache/dalvik from the app
Fix permissions in background
reboot into recovery
If you’re looking for a good application to help you with change logs, downloading updates, and other things of that nature, BBQTools is worth a look. The team is also working on a feature that will allow you to compile your own CM nightlies from within the application or the TeamBBQ website. That’ll be pretty awesome.

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...
While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
