You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

Return to Outer Space Outer Space with Ship Up Game
Since the release of Flappy Birds, we’ve had the “fortune” to see hundreds of variations of the concept. Doge, shoes, and cheese were not too unusual in the sea of weird flying objects trying to squeeze between two pipes.
A quite unique approach to this concept was taken by XDA Forum Member IDSprofile, who decided to take flappy thing to… outer space! In the game Ship Up, you are the pilot of a spaceship trying to reach the stars and go to its home planet. It’s not easy, however, since the route is full of meteorite obstacles, so you need to be really focused to get high and score a good result. You need to fly between them to get to the higher level.
You may think that tapping the screen to find a hole is easy and everyone can get a high score—and, you’re right. However, you need to be focused, lucky, and have lots of free time to become really good at playing. Such games like Ship Up are highly addictive, so you can end up playing for a few hours.
Help a friendly alien find his way back home. Go to the Ship Up game thread and get your fingers ready for tapping.

In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
