Thinking of going Android for the first time, quick question - Blinkfeed / Live Tile equivalent ?
I've been an iPhone user from day 1, jailbreaker from as early as it was possible. Gave up buying them at iP5 as imo Apple have stopped caring about pushing their product forward.
So, I went for a Lumia 920 as I loved the idea of Live Tiles.
A number of niggles have stopped me from enjoying the phone as much as I should, so the obvious thing to do is start looking at Android.
So I'm thinking it will be either the Nexus 4 or HTC One.
I really want an equivalent to live tiles, as the idea of just having all the info I choose, there on my homescreen, without needing to go into apps is the thing I like the most.
So email updates, photo updates, facebook updates, traffic updates, fave web page updates etc.
Is HTC One the one to go for ? Blinkfeed seems that it may be the thing I want, though I'm still trying to work out if it provides all the stuff I've mentioned above.
My real question is - is there an app which can give you a "live" homescreen in the same way as WM8 has with it's live tiles ?
I've always been a tinkerer, hence the jailbreaking, so from recent conversations it sounds as though Android on Nexus ought to be the best fit for me, but I freely admit my knowledge of Android is very limited.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
