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...
Old WM App LMT Launcher Ported To Android, Launch Commands With Gestures
That image on the right look familar? Back when the HTC HD2 was released, devs scrambled to write Windows Mobile applications that could utilize its multitouch screen. One of the more notable ones was LMT Launcher (we wrote about it several times), which allowed you to perform customizable actions, for example launching a program, using single- and multitouch gestures.
LMT is a tool for Android (tested on Evo3D/Sensation/HD2/DesireHD and more…) that launches a command when perform single touch or multitouch gestures on the screen (In any app/screen/etc.). You can connect basic and advanced commands to any gesture LMT supports.
One of the advantages of LMT, compared to similar “gesture launchers” on the Android Market, is that you can draw gestures on any screen, without the need for persistent icons that you have to tap before starting the gesture. This advantage, however, comes at a cost: You’ll need root access.
Also, if your device is not listed as one of the supported ones, you may have to experiment with setting different numbers for the input device. If you figured out the correct number, report it to the dev so he can include it in his original post. So, what are you waiting for? Get the app in the forum thread!

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.
