Are you talking about a 1x1 button to open the email program, or a widget that is ~2x4 and displays maybe the first couple lines of a new email or something?

1. Go to the screen that you want your "mail" app.
2. Long press it
3. Go to the upper left hand side and press that for apps (the default is widgets)
4. Go through the app list and select the app "mail"
5. This will appear on your screen. This is the default HTC mail syncing app. It can sync any number of emails.

The whole point of my question in the first place was that there is a gmail widget that displays the newest couple of messages, and my Galaxy S3 had the same for Exchange. This seems to be missing from the HTC One. So I was asking about the second one. And I can't find an add-on widget in the Play Store either.

Default camera, app drawer, dock

Just noticed that on the HTC one, the camera app isn't in the app drawer but it is in the dock...and you can't remove it from the dock.

Where's the...sense...in that?

am I missing some really...intuitive...function/option?

Go to your app drawer,then click/drag/drop on the app in the dock that you want to remove from the dock.

I know,it's a bit different from most U/I's.

If you have the app on one of your homepages, then it will not appear in the app drawer.

If you move the camera to the task bar at the bottom, then go to the app drawer, you can move the camera back to the app drawer.

I think you can add a shortcut to it on the homepage by long pressing on the page, then change from Widgets to apps & I think there is camera icon there.


I hope this helps

if you have it on your dock, it won't show in the app drawer. In order to remove it from the dock, you have to open the app drawer then hold and drag it back in.

Default Deleting initial feeds screen

As you are all aware the HTC One's initial home screen is the 'feeds screen'
Is there anyway of removing this. I have now setup my own home screen but the 'feeds screen' still remains in the leftmost position

hi,

post #2 is made by EarlyMon. He asked HTC on their blog:

HTC Launches Blinkfeed with the new HTC One - HTC Blog

Quote:
Can we just turn it off? If not, what happens if I unselect everything in the menu?
Quote:
By default, Blinkfeed is the home screen. You do have the option to change the home screen to one of the other screens.
so there. Rooting will rid you of the screen or you can do what EM suggested or live with the blinkfeed page being there.

personally i adore binkfeed but i know may people do not.

It is possible:

Default HTC Locations dropped from Sense 5.0

Although it was never going to be a deal breaker, I was just a tad disappointed when I discovered that the Locations/Footprints app had been dropped from Sense 5.0 - I had used it extensively on the Desire S, finding it easy to use and accurate.

The lack of it was certainly not going to put me off getting the One which I've now had for just over a week and loving it.

I have spoken to HTC Support to see whether the app was available to download if required and the answer was little more than a short and sweet 'No - not possible'. He did refer to rooting as a possible solution, in a vague sort of way, adding the obvious 'but that would affect the warranty'.

I wonder if anyone knows differently.......

As for BlinkFeed, I don't mind it at all, it's there and I will use it if it suits me, otherwise I'll leave it on the 'apps' setting tucked away on screen one out of sight out of mind - screen 2 is my home screen and by grouping apps and bookmarks into folders I currently have 36 apps and 35 bookmarks available with two taps plus the four apps in dock.

Screens 3,4 and 5 have various other folders, apps and widgets.

Four screens are plenty for me.

All in all, I find the HTC One very much like my Ducati - just as good to look at as it is to use!!

Just a quickie iro Blinkfeed.

At first, I thought of it as nothing more and nothing less than a typical HTC 'gimmick'.

However, now, I can't resist reading page after page of my favourite subjects before I retire at night.

Pleasant bedtime reading, if I haven't got anything 'better to do!'

Hi, if you go into settings and tap 'Auto Refresh', it opens a selection box with two options, 'Using WiFi only' or 'Using Mobile data or WiFi'.

Thanks for responding EarlyMon. Having had the Desire S for two years and during that time read many forum comments about HTC Locations that conflict with mine, I think I may be in a minority of one.

I know that Locations is tied in, somehow, to Sense, because when my Desire S had the update to Sense 3.0, Locations included the Trip function, but the Locations app appears to be freestanding with it's own version number and listing in 'Manage apps'.

The HTC guy said 'it's no longer available' which sort of bears that out.

I did wonder if rooting the Desire S would give me access to the Locations apk, but the Desire S has now replaced my wife's aging TYTN, so it's more than my life's worth to risk ******* that up!!

So I would be interested to know from anybody with any rooted HTC device with Locations on board, whether the apk is accessible.

Having said all that I'm quite happily using Google Maps for navigating, and have downloaded the free Route 66 app and various maps for route checking.

Sense is, as you know, a launcher and an app collection. They're very heavily integrated - closely tied to one another. If you look in applications management, you'll find that Mail for example has its own revision number and so forth like Locations, but it's tied to the Sense version as well.

Under the hood, in files you don't see, is Sense's various glue layers (the framework) - software tying their apps together.

Last year's One X had USA and non-USA Sense versions thanks to a silly Apple lawsuit that they could only win in the USA. Our apps lost some features. Rooters quickly discovered that bringing in UK versions of mail and messaging apps didn't work - glue layers were different. Our development community had to decompile hidden files and tinker there in order to get the features working in the apps you can see.

My point -

After you're rooted and have a full nandroid backup as a safety net, drop me a line. I'll help you get to the old Locations app (without disturbing her Desire S) and walk you through laying it in as a system app, if you don't know how already. It's not difficult.

With a good backup, it's certainly worth a try. But if it's tied to its Sense framework, per usual, it's not going to work. If not tied in that way, you'll get lucky and Bob's your uncle.

Sense is actually put together in a very cool way, and it shows in its feature performance year after year.

Meanwhile, if you can find a good Play Store app with the features you need, your life is going to be a whole lot simpler.

Thank you EarlyMon, your offer is much appreciated and I may well take you up on it at some point in the future. I'm content to continue with using Google maps for navigation, and Route 66 for offline route checking (with the option of monthly or annual navigation license if necessary). As you point out, I suspect that even if I were able to load Locations onto my One it wouldn't run properly with Sense 5.0, and I certainly don't want to cause any sort of conflict on the One.

More to the point I'd have a hell of a job getting the Desire S in my hands long enough to do anything more than switch it on!!!

Jim,

similar issues have been reported in this thread.

trying a "battery pull" soft reset a time or two may help.

That said, I am having ZERO issues with BF. I have it set to refresh every 15 minutes and I have nearly every option checked. I am on wifi at the moment but i have had no issues on cellular.

Maybe try one or the other (wifi or cellular). uncheck and recheck the feeds you are subscribing to. could also be an issue in your area with the network if you are on celular.

After another re-boot & toggling of all topics/apps in BLINKFEED, it's working again. Guess it just needed to cough up the proverbial hairball.

Oh okay. Well I've done all that and as of now nothing has corrected it. I'm sure it will get fixed eventually

Also...it just keeps on trying to update non stop. This has to be killing my battery. There is no way that I can find to stop it

EDIT: I solved my issue. I had disabled the HTC News Plugin under All Apps. Enabled it and problem solved

As far as I can see, no. Just the Guardian and The Independent, both of which are very informative and 'professional'.

Why not d/l the BBC News app, like I did. It's not exactly what you want, however, it should suffice. You even have the option of breaking news alerts up where the battery icon is, which you can disable in options :-)

Why not d/l the BBC News app, like I did. It's not exactly what you want, however, it should suffice. You even have the option of breaking news alerts up where the battery icon is, which you can disable in options :-)

It depends on the country/region selected as Local Content in BlinkFeed settings, and which of the resulting options are selected in the tick boxes.

United Kingdom gives me Guardian, The Independent, Financial Times and Reuters.

United States gives me Huffington Post, AP, and Reuters.

Global English adds Euronews.

Other categories are country/region specific too.

Default Blinkfeed Refresh

Hi. Just got an HTC One yesterday and I'd like to change the amount of time it takes for Blinkfeed to refresh. It seems to refresh every hour or so. How can I set it so it refreshes every fifteen minutes or so? I've looked everywhere in settings and I can't seem to find anything.

Hi,

Per HTC support:

https://support.htc.com/en-us/010-HTC_One_ATT/020/Can_I_change_the_refresh_schedule_in_HTC_Blinkfeed %3F

Quote:
QUESTION:
Can I change the refresh schedule in HTC Blinkfeed?

ANSWER:
The phone automatically refreshes every 2 hours on mobile data network or hourly on Wi-Fi. While the phone is charging and connected to Wi-Fi, it refreshes every 15 minutes.

You can refresh HTC BlinkFeed anytime by pulling down the top of the screen. Pull down to refresh is now part of the many gestures supported on HTC Sense 5, such as the Mail app.

Question Is there a Timeriffic functionality build in(to Sense maybe)??

I'm coming from the Bionic using Timeriffic.

Hoping to get the HTC One when it finally makes it to Verizon this Thursday.

This might be more a general Android question than a HTC One, unless Sense has this, but, is there Timeriffic kind of functionality build into Sense, or HTC One, or will still have to use Timeriffic to have the phone automatically turn on and off phone functioins, such as wifi, vibrate, volume, adjust screen brightness, etc, according to a preset schedule??

I don't think that function is built into sense, so timeriffic or even tasker seems like your best bet

Default contact groups works differently in Sense?

I'd like to select which contact groups display on the phone, I don't want all of them to. I was able to on my old android device, but on this phone all I seem to be able to do is "delete" a group? and there are default groups that it won't let me delete (even though I don't want them....).

Am I missing something, or is the contacts manager on this phone really this poorly designed?

I usually don't bother w/this myself,as I have a frequent "FAVORITES" set-up.

However you can edit which contacts are displayed,whether by group/favorites/accounts attached to your phone,etc...

You can fine tune in a number of ways,but,to do so by groups only,for this particular discussion,try this:

Go to CONTACTS > GROUPS (scroll sideways left or right to find GROUPS).

Select the group that you want to edit/delete by long-pressing on the desired group.You should now have the option to edit or remove all contacts from the group.

A quick tap on the GROUP will bring up all members/items in the GROUP.
Long press on the contact you wish to edit/delete.

when you click on "Phonebook" in the upper left, the drop down shows all your accounts that are synced, by clicking the menu button to their side you can select their options, for a google account it lets you there select which groups you want to display.

What phone would that be, you don't have your phone or carrier listed.

I've owned/used at least a half-dozen ANDROIDS & the ACCOUNTS/SYNC option(s) to choose to sync contacts go back as far as ANDROID 2.3,if not further, not to mention this one, the HTC ONE.

I think we have crossed wires. Accounts & Sync let's you choose to sync or not, but not which groups are displayed, which us what TinCanFury was after (and has found - that is a bit hidden IMO).

Default HTC One (Verizon) Mail widget?

Is there a Mail widget available for the HTC One or can I find one to sideload that will include emails from multiple email accounts? I had this on my prior HTC phone (DNA) but do not find it in the list of widgets on the One.



A couple of quick tips I picked up from the HTC Support site:
  • Double tap on the Home key provides a list of recent apps
  • You add a menu function with a long press of Home key through Settings-Display, gestures & buttons
Just received my Verizon version HTC One yesterday and liking it so far.

Default Blink Feed and Twitter

Hello: I just got the One for Verizon today (coming from the DNA) and am trying to set up Blink Feed. One problem I'm having is that I don't see an option for Twitter. Any ideas why it wouldn't be there? Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks, but that is the problem. I can find that tab but only have the filtering options: Facebook, LinkedIn, instagram, Flickr. For some reason, Twitter is not included.

Odd, mine showed it even before I had logged into my account via the Twitter app. I assume the app is installed and you've logged in? The only thing I can think is that it's not installed?

It is odd. I don't have Twitter "proper" itself but use Tweetcaster.

Also odd is the fact that when I go to Accounts & Sync (not for blinkfeed - for the entire phone) to "add accounts" I don't get an option for Twitter. I suspect that's related but have no idea what's causing it.

Thanks; that did it. Much obliged.

I'm still baffled as to why Twitter was not present by default as it has been with every other HTC phone I've owned.
