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?).

OpenMobileMaps Gets Even Better on Version 1.4
XDA member Cipher brings us yet another update for his popular application for Windows Mobile. According to the dev, this new update brings a ton of bugs fixes as well as many speed improvements. On top of that, the app now has multi-language support and increased download speeds for the maps and features. This app has previously been featured in the portal, and you can read the previous article here.
I wrote an application similar to GoogleMaps but it’s relying on OpenStreetMap.org.
It’s finger friendly and showing the map on fullscreen.
GPS support and GSM triangulation (if no GPS device is present) is built in.
The downloaded map tiles are stored on your phone/storage and only new ones are downloaded.
It’s tested and working with all possible resolutions, with internal GPS and external GPS. And it should work on all Windows Mobile devices with .NET CF 3.5 installed.
Tell me what you think of it and please find some bugs!
You can find the change log and more information about it in the application thread.

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.
