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...
Do You Like Using Sense But Hate The Bloating? Flashable ROM Cleaner May Be Right For You
Taste is something very particular and that each one of us uses to determine whether or not we like something more than a comparable item. In the case of HTC Sense, it usually ends up being a love or hate type of thing as there is no in-between. The UI is quite unique in the sense that it gives you lot of different tools to interact with, all this while making your Android experience unique. The problem with all the different tools is the fact that you have to have all said different tools on your device, and people coming from AOSP roms or simpler UIs are not exactly comfortable with the amount of bloatware placed by Sense. On the other hand, you love the app drawer and the whole Sense core gives you what you need. So, what do you do if you want the Sense framework and don’t want anything else? Surely, you can remove a lot of this stuff from your device. However, it is a very long and tedious task, or at least it used to be until XDA member Patrics83 came up with Flashable Rom Cleaner. This app, will remove most of the Sense add-ons while leaving Rosie intact as well as the core framework of Sense. Everything else, including widgets, apps, etc is completely removed. Keep in mind that this must be applied right after flashing a new Sense rom and before booting it for the first time.
Please leave a comment or two for the dev and if you find some bus, make sure that you leave some feedback as well.
Rosie does not get removed, so you will still have the HTC App Launcher!
In other words you can say this is the best way to come close to a no-sense ROM and still use HTC Sense.

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? 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.
