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?).

ROU Launcher For Android Coming
Most mobile users are always looking for ways to get their devices personalized with an original user interface, so that the device can feel more unique. I came across the work presented by XDA member TeamROU. ROU Launcher is another option to have a different UI on your Android operating system. Moreover, it comes with many options to personalize your beloved and expensive toy.
The work is still on alpha stage but the team promises that they will work on it until they reach a final version with many nice features to play with. The public release is expected for December, but in the meantime you can see a video of the application, so if you like it, stay tuned on the original thread to find more information.

We are doing our best to bring it to you as soon as possible and with hopefully more developers interest(get experienced developers to contact us!), we hope to do exactly that. Stay tuned for more updates on the launcher and other apps we have in mind.
ROU Launcher Release Information:
Closed Beta Test: Late November
Market Release: Early/Mid December
There will be a paid version but also a free version as well. The paid version will have all the widgets as shown in the video and other extra features. Stay tuned.
Also, we appreciate the great interest for the launcher but please DO NOT contact us about Beta testing yet as November is a while away and we will be sure to post for applications for the closed Beta testing when November comes. Thanks.
Head over to the discussion 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.
