HTC recently made a few of its native Sense 6.0 apps available on the Play Store so as to make it easier to update them in the future. This move is already reaping great benefits as the manufacturer has now rolled out updates to its BlinkFeed and Gallery applications with some new changes.
The updates don’t bring any drastic upgrades, but are certainly welcome since these are the core Sense 6.0 apps. The BlinkFeed update changelog shows that it now enables for faster scrolling and also brings the ability to add more content.
The Gallery app comes with a new feature called Foregrounder which is a focusing effect allowing users to tap anywhere in the screen to make changes to a particular image. These are very minor features, but without the help of Play Store apps, HTC would have had to wait for a full blown firmware update to bring in these changes. So with that in mind, this is a very welcome change by HTC.
