HTC Publishes BlinkFeed App in Play Store, More Stock Apps Coming
HTC has started a new way of updating the applications on its devices, by publishing them on the Play Store. This means that in the future we may not depend on carriers or delays, but simply get our own apps from the Google Play Store. Today’s release brings the BlinkFeed app via this distribution method.
A bunch of other stock HTC apps have arrived in the store, including Service Pack apps. For now, these apps can’t be downloaded for last year’s HTC One model, or at least HTC doesn’t let you do that. In case you don’t know, the BlinkFeed app brings you social feeds, calendar events, news, music and content arranged in an user friendly way.
There’s also an Offline Reading feature, allowing you to update feeds with WiFi and save them for later reading. The HTC Service Pack is a support service update that will combine previously released updates and help us make the HTC experience reliable. The Service Packs are offered free of charge… By the way, BlinkFeed’s here.
