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...
Multi-Purpose Android Tuner for Easy Tweaking and Device Monitoring
XDA Senior Member 3c has been developing Android apps for quite some time now. Best known for his system monitoring apps such as Battery Monitor Widget, System Tuner and Multi Toggle Widget, his latest app, Android Tuner, combines all 3 of these apps into one multi-purpose mega-app. Android Tuner also brings new features not seen in his other apps, including:
-Automatic Back-up of installed apps
-Logcat reader for JellyBean 4.1.x
– Graphical Monitoring Widgets
-milli-amp consumption reporting
As with his other apps, this one is geared toward the power user who wants in-depth monitoring of his or her device. As such, many (but not all) of the features require root. Android Tuner takes Android system monitoring and control to the next level, and it is a culmination of everything the developer has learned in his quest for the “Ultimate” app for the power-user. The complete feature list is:
- File explorer (root, sd, network share, streaming)
– Application backups (auto, multiple version)
– Startup application manager*
– Application event control*
– System app uninstaller*
– System update cleaner*
– Monitoring (battery, cpu, network, memory)
– Logcat**, kernel message reader*
– App statistics since unplugged
– Task manager
– Auto-task killer
– Terminal emulator
– CPU tweaks (governor, frequency, voltages) relying on Kernel support*
– SD tweaks (cache size, scheduler)*
– Sysctl editor*
– Build.prop editor*
– Many notifications icons can be installed
– 1×1 and 2×1 text widgets
– 2×1, 3×1, 4×1, 4×2, 5×1 and 5×2 graphic widgets
– 1×1 and 4×1 toggle widgets***
– App optimizer (zipalign and database cleaner)
– Battery saver (cpu, switch off wifi, bt…)***
and much more that meets the eye
* Requires root access
** Requires root access on Android 4.1 and above
*** Requires root for full feature
The app is currently in Beta testing. If you are interested in giving it a whirl, head over to the application thread to get started.

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.
