HTC's Dot View hits the Google Play Store for easier updates in the future27
Listing system apps on the Google Play Store has been Motorola's MO lately with Active Display and Assist having their own apps to name a couple. Motorola has even updated those two apps already. But with the new HTC One (M8) having just launched, the Dot View app doesn't do anything differently than the phone does at this point. That includes being able to make or take calls with the cover on, receive email notifications, weather updates, time and date, and information about battery life.
HTC took the flip cover window, which has become increasingly popular amongst Android manufacturers for their top-shelf phones, and put its own stamp on the idea of receiving information from your phone while the cover is closed. Kudos to HTC for not just copying the others.
