PacMap: Location Based PacMan

If you’re looking for a modern spin on the classic game of PacMan then try out PacMap. PacMap was made by XDA member bompo. The app is a location based game that uses GPS to track your location. How it works is you turn it on then move around the city you are in to eat the dots, but watch out as the ghosts will follow you! Here is a quote from the OP:

PacMap is a location-based game for Android phones.
To play the game you need a GPS signal and a working internet connection. There also have to be some streets nearby.
Your goal is to eat all the dots. For each dot you will get a point. But beware! Ghosts will try to catch you. Try to avoid them as long as possible.

It looks very well done and is on the market for free. This is a public beta test so there may be bugs, please report any in the discussion thread. Enjoy!

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...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

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.
