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...
Koush Teases Fully Touch-Enabled ClockwordMod Recovery
We’ve previously shown you some touch-enabled recoveries: for one, the fully touch-based 4EXT Recovery Touch, but also modded CWM versions. However, both had their own shortcomings; while the modded CWM versions use on-screen buttons which emulate the functions of hardware keys, without taking full advantage of the touchscreen, not everyone might be willing to change to a completely different recovery if they’re already used to ClockworkMod. But what if – what if ClockwordMod was updated with a fully touch-based interface?
Apparently, that’s coming soon, as CWM developer Koush is teasing in a new video. It shows the usual ClockwordMod Recovery, but with enlarged list items that can be touched directly, eschewing the need for any emulated buttons. Scrolling also works, but only “very rough” – the scrolling algorithm looks very basic for now, though that (and graphics) will presumably be improved in later versions.

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.
