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?).

Sense 3.0 Lockscreen for Any Phone!
I rarely like to post about graphical developments, they always seem anti-climactic. That goes for most graphical developments, though, and this isn’t one of them. The idea of being able to modify your lockscreen is quite a cool one, especially when the idea of replacing it with that of Sense 3.0.
As long as you run Android on your device, Agile Lock, posted by user xboxfanj and created by the SOLA team, allows you to change your current lockscreen to look and function like Sense 3.0. The app also has options to change fonts, font color, font size, background settings, shortcuts settings and much more.
It will be interesting to see what lockscreens will be added to this app in the future. Maybe you’ll be able to develop and use your own designs, using the app to run them without excessive coding knowledge.
I’ve been running the app on my phone for a few hours now and I have to say, it’s a fantastic idea which they’ve implemented very well. I can only recommend that you check it out, if you like the look and functionality of the Sense 3.0 lockscreen.
If you’d like to get the app for yourself, head on over to the original thread!

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor.

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.
