There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
SciLor’s GSensor Control [Alpha] Available
Many of the newest HTC Windows Mobile devices no longer feature a directional pad to navigate menus, as the now finger-friendly builds of WM 6.5 have eliminated a need for them. However, not having a D-pad can really be a pain when trying to navigate small, fiddly menus in apps such as Total Commander, and it also makes playing some games impossible.
Thankfully scilor has written an ingenious app that resolves this issue, by using your phone’s accelerometer (or G-Sensor) as a replacement for the directional buttons; scrolling down when you tilt the phone down, left when tilted to the left, etcetera.
‘SciLor’s GSensor Control’ also features two different settings for keystroke repetition. The ‘Analog Emulation’ option will send a number of keystrokes relative to how long the device is tilted for, whereas selecting ‘Digital Pad’ will cause the directional button to effectively be ‘held’ until the device is returned to its original position.
To use the app you’ll need .NET Framework v3.5 running on your device. As the app is still in its alpha stage of development, there is a chance that you will experience some bugs while using it. Download the .cab from the application thread, and don’t forget to leave some feedback once you’ve given it a try, to aid in the development process.

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...
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...
