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...
Doom Blood Ported to Windows Mobile
If you are a fan of the original Doom Blood game and have wondered if you could ever play it on your Windows Mobile device, here’s you answer – yes you can!
XDA forum member Wolfas has ported the original Doom Blood game to Windows Mobile in a Total Conversion WAD file – there is no need for the original Doom2.wad. It runs off the emulator for Pocket PC, GFDoom.
For those of you who are not familiar with the term, WADs are package files containing levels and game data (Where’s All the Data?). Many players create their own mods for WAD files and their are thousands floating around the web for Doom. A Total Conversion is a WAD that replaces all or almost all the resources used within the original game.
Wolfas has also provided skins for GFDoom which redesign the onscreen button layout for the HTC Raphael and HTC Diamond, although these should also work with other devices. If your device does not have a navigation pad, don’t worry as Wolfas has also provided a skin for this. If the hardware buttons do not work on your device, the dev has also offered to modify skins to support them.
To download the beta2 files and instructions on how to install, check out the application thread.

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.
