The original Vector was a hit when it came out a few years ago, and now the developer has released Vector 2. The gameplay is similar to the first one, but the upgrade system is much more extensive. It's actually a little confusing. Such is the cost of progress, I suppose.

Before, the Chromecast queue was only accessible from the inset video that is dragged up from the right hand side of the screen. With this redesign, the inset video disappears entirely and is replaced by a bar that fills the bottom of the screen, much like the now playing bar in Google Play Music.

Wileyfox Swift Gets Upgraded To Cyanogen OS Version 13 (Based On Android 6.0.1)

Slowly but surely, Android offshoot-slash-alternative Cyanogen OS is gaining ground. The incorporated and semi-proprietary version of the CyanogenMod ROM now powers a handful of retail-available phones from companies like YU, Zuk, and Smartfen, though larger manufacturers like OnePlus and Oppo have seemingly cooled on Cyanogen software.

I'll admit, I'm a Telegram newbie. I installed the app once, but kept finding myself drawn back to the standard Messenger (SMS) app. However, with the update to Telegram 3.9, I might get more use out of this popular (and secure) messenger app. You can finally edit messages, and it's easier to mention people regardless of whether or not they have a username.
