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.
SobrietyCounter for Android
XDA member Luggruff points us to an interesting app made by XDA member cyansmoker. This is a useful tool for those who are habitual drinkers. The app will allow the users to keep tabs on the last time they got drunk, or if you want to give it a positive spin, it will allow you to keep track of how many days you’ve been sober. The app is growing and the dev said that a widget for the home screen would be added eventually.

Basicly an app keeping track of your time being sober and also including options such as “contact sponsor”. An app inspired by the iPhone’s “Friends of Bill”
You can find more information in the application thread.
