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...
Voodoo Soundpatch for Asus Transformer
The sound of the SRS speakers in the Asus Transformer has been loaded with issues and haunted by what many believe are hardware defects. However, over the last couple of weeks, our devs have been putting out fixes and patches for things such as the balance of both speakers. Since things are working now, it is time to start improving them a bit and this is just what XDA Recognized Developer supercurio had in mind. According to him, the tablet from Asus comes loaded with a good set of sound drivers that make it compatible with one of his most infamous fixes (if you come from the SGS world, you will likely recognize this in no time), Voodoo Sound. This is being made available for Transformer users and tweaked specifically for this device by the dev. According to him, this will allow the TF to play either through the speakers or headphones, crisp clear sound without crackling or breaking.
There are two versions of the app, one which will require a kernel with modules to enable this and the other being a stand alone. Please get the one that is most suitable for you. Also, please leave some feedback.
Asus EeePad Transformer hosts a very nice audio codec by Wolfson that powers both the headphone and speaker output.
Its the ultra low power WM8903, implementing a midrange DAC (Wolfson-scale) that outputs a clean and musical signal, and my favorite Class W headphone amp, that gives a clean controlled and accurate output, and is able to drive full-size 300 Ohms headphones without distortion.

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.

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.
