Today was a big day for HTC because of the announcement and release of the HTC One (M8), but it was a big day for Android users in general, because it marked another major manufacturer that decided to opt for Google's way to offer faster software updates by releasing major features as apps in the Google Play Store, because BlinkFeed updates will now be pushed through the Play Store...

Not really, I've ran into some issues with it and Google doesn't seem take feedback on it.

It's not as bad as the thousands of one-star reviews would lead you to believe but I still feel like Currents was WAY better in terms of navigation.

I can't wait to install it on my Nexus 5. I was looking at a 2013 HTC One and I liked how BlinkFeed looked.

Don't think apple would allow it. It's like saying their ui is awful and need a touch of blink feed.

Yeah blink feed was so cool back then.2013. I think that was the only thing that I liked about htc. Would like to try it out.

Why would they do that? Blinkfeed is supposed to be one of the main features of the HTC One and now they're making it available to everyone? I just don't understand HTC.

I guess that it's like promotion of HTC software.

What if they push ads for their devices through it :)

No thank you. I wanted to turn it off but I couldn't.

umm actually you can, so that means you never owned the phone at all did you?
20. Taters (Posts: 3466; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I owned it. You couldn't when it first came out. You dumb ass....

may be because they will do it like nokia they will give like a preview of blinkfeed and hope the user likes it enough and buys a htc device

I'd definitely try it, from what I've seen it looks really nice. A Sense launcher would make me even happier though.
