You are indeed correct, came across this article from ANDROID POLICE w/a direct link to a GOOGLE forum discussing the issue:

Default Share Gmail First

Hi all sorry to post so much in one day. I am wondering when I click share icon from the gallery or any other app is it possible to have Gmail as an option without clicking "show more". I don't use the "Mail" app so its annoying to have to have extra taps to get to Gmail. just wondering.

One tap on "show more" opens up more choices.

In the stock configuration there is no option to make one app higher up the list of options over another, and as you install more apps, this list may grow even larger.

Example, when I click on share, I have at least ten options and Gmail is way down there.. :-)

Default 4g toggle widget missing...

I recently upgraded to a One and there was a 4g widget available to use to toggle between 3g and 4g but now I went looking for it again and its missing! I'm currently with Vodafone who don't have 4g up and running yet. So my question is, will this widget appear again when 4g becomes activated?
It's showing in the network settings where you can select between wcdma, gsm and LTE Auto. So it might return?

yes you go into network settings and enable what band you want the phone to use. this is probably the way its going to be unless you root and then you may be able to add those widgets back...

Sprint version is set up the same way and has no 4g widget.

How do you get rid of the 3 verticle dot dot thing at the bottom when you are on a app? It takes up 1-2 line of space I want it to go away.

My previous HTC I was able to get rid of it under Gestures.

The update to android 4.2 is said to fix this, and they're working on it now. No word on a release time table yet though.

Default Two quick questions

Hi

I have two quick questions. Two phones ago I had an HTC Desire S, I think it was. There were two things about that phone that really, really, annoyed me, and I am wondering if HTC has now managed to address those issues in the One.

1. It is my company's policy to lock the phone so that every time I wanted to use my phone, I had to enter the pin code. This created a problem when I received calls. For instance, if the volume was turned down too low and I wanted to increase it, I had to interrupt the conversation and enter my pin code.

My question for you: is it possible on the One to increase the volume without entering the pin code first?

2. From time to time (more often than I like to think) it would be necessary to reboot the phone. It was pretty much impossible to make the phone do this without it putting out a loud "brilliant" sound no matter what the volume was the phone. This could be rather embarrassing in meetings, etc. Of course, it did not help that the phone displayed "HTC - quietly brilliant" as it made this loud noise.

My second question for you: has HTC now become quietly brilliant, i.e., can I turn the phone on without it making this loud noise?

Quite the opposite to be honest. HTC has become Quietly louder with the Brilliant, beats enhanced, forward facing, speakers utilized on the One.
The power on sound is now alarmingly loud. I seem to recall that even when my phone was set to vibrate or silent the power on sound was still audible (Sprint). Someone with the phone in hand, on your proposed carrier, will be able to confirm for you.

Check out a video showing you what to expect (bloody loud):

I am really hoping they can/will resolve the sound with an update. Going from silent to +1 is an obnoxiously large jump in volume. From +1 to MAX is far more incremental. I know others have posted a few equalizer apps you can download... but c'mon. You shouldn't have to download a freaking EQ just to hold sounds down to a moderate level.

I have a Sprint HTC One, and it no longer has that startup sound. It was one of the unmentioned changes in the update. ( maybe some of the other carrier users can chime in and let me know if they still have the sound)

Well that is good news. I will not be using Sprint though, but hopefully this goes across the board.

This does not solve the problem. I want to, and need to, have the phone locked with a pin code.

Is it still not possible to change the call volume without first entering the pin code?

Do the volume rockers not increase the headset volume while you're on a call unless its unlocked?

It did not on my old HTC Desire S, and I am wondering if they fixed this issue with the HTC One.

I'v had a Samsung Galaxy S2 since then and it lets me change volume without entering the pin code.

The volume rocker will not work unless you enter the PIN when not on a call. ( This is to prevent someone from muting your ringtone) While in a call the screen should not lock unless you purposefully press the home key and the power button.

If you are in a call there is a button at the bottom that says "return to call" so you do not have to re-enter your pin until the call is completed.

Default Need explanations on how to listen to podcasts

I never learned about porting music or podcasts to Android and now that I have this HTC One, I'd like to learn, but I'm a little confused.

I see I have an app called Music that has a podcast folder option. I have installed the HTC Sync Manager on my Mac and music gets imported from my iTunes folder structure but no podcasts.

So is there an equivalent to the iPhone regarding podcast management? It seems like the Music app is set up to be similar with everything all in one place, however there is no way to subscribe to podcasts from within it.

I'd like to not fill my phone up with a bunch of different apps if I can help it.

i use the Play music app, install that app on your computer at home with all your music.. set the folder, and sub folders.. let it do its work, then you can stream your music on your phone, rather than having to have the music on your phone

I don't want to stream music. I want it there all the time with no lag when I change playlists. I read on this forum that it has to re-cache when the song is changed to a different playlist and that induces lag.

I might consider it if it handles podcasts subscriptions though. How well does it manage those compared to the iPhone?

You can download it to the phone as well. Its not strictly one or the other. Android is about choices


For podcasts, I like beyondpod. Paid app, bit works really well.

Are you saying I can download music to the phone and play it with Play music? I opened Play Music and it wanted to charge me $8 a month. I know I can port my music over to the plain old Music app that comes on the phone and it would be free. So how does both of these apps handle podcasts?

Default blink feed

Hi, new to the forum..

Had my lovely HTC one a fee days now and it's been the best move I have made ditching apple. The only problem I have is the renowned occasional pop of the speakers and my biggest problem.. my blink feed and weather won't update at all. It all has to be done manually, it is set to WiFi only but won't give me the choice to chose mobile data, any ideas?
Even on WiFi no self updating.

Thank you

Default Alternate ways to open the One?

I was wondering if there is a way to be able to access the phone when the screen is off without hitting the power button on top? It'd be nice not to have to stretch all the way up there. Maybe a double tap of the "home" button could turn the screen on? Any sort of solution for that?

Thanks!

No there isn't, not without a custom ROM that I'm aware of anyway. So reach for that home button and get in that exercise

Yes, check out PROXIMITY SCREEN OFF in the GOOGLE PLAY STORE.

There are other similar apps that can accomplish this as well.

No problem.It'd be cool for HTC to bake this feature directly into the SENSE 5 U/I.
IMHO,for the most part,gesture controls are more gimmick than function/utility.However,this would be the exception.

If you tap the time/date area it opens a new swipe screen with :-

World Clock : Alarm : Stopwatch : Timer

If you tap the weather area it opens a new swipe screen with :-

Now : Hourly (Next 24 hours) : Forecast (Next 7 days)

Jim,

when you are in the body of the message, say, an email,

up at the top left there is a icon that looks like a keyboard,

pull down the notification and you should see "choose input method".

Boom.

Default new to android, random questions I cant figure out

Ok guys hi I'm new to android, just pick up an HTC One and got a few questions.

I use A.T..T data only on my previously iPhone 5, so now its data only only on HTC One. I use talkatone to make calls and sms through GoogleVoice.

Q1: I can't seem to figure out how to HIDE the little phone picture in the top left notifications when talkatone is running. I still want to get talkatone notifications, I just dont want a constant one up there letting me know that app is running. Tired talkatone settings, nothing there

Q2:
Can't seem to find ANYWHERE how to turn on battery %. I can do it on the top left by installing 3rd party apps, but I want it to show % on the right by the battery if possible. Had an android phone a long time ago and it was possible back then so why now now in android 4?

Q3: On HTC one when you hit the HOME button (bottom right button) twice it takes you to like tiles that show you all the recent apps, ok great I like that, but when you flip the app OFF the screen it doesn't turn them OFF to save on RAM. Why would they not make it turn the app OFF? Anyways, is it possible to terminate/shut off the app when you remove them from there?

Its annoying having to go to settings to kill apps all the time, it ******* ******ed in fact.

Anyways, thanks for reading and for any help. Hope I find some answers.

Q1 not too sure as Talkatone won't run on my Samsung phone (not compatible/stupid Play store) but i do use a similar app known as GrooveIP which does the same thing. i think that is by-design to keep Android from killing it later on so it allows you to receive calls without missing any (system persistent setting). the only way to get rid of it in my case is to logout and exit the app which of course disables its ability to make/receive calls through it.

Q2 i usually do the opposite. leaving percentage on makes me nervous as it drops so fast i worry about how long i'll go. the battery meter is less unnerving without it so i wait until it turns red or goes to 1/3 filled. much better. the ROM i'm currently running has percentage which i hate but i like the style of it. (all of them including signal show as aircraft engine management style circle gauges like the Boeing PFDs which is cool) i think if lacking the setting it would require rooting (jailbreaking) and hacking to enable through a custom battery gauge. most Android versions after 4.0 have a setting under settings--Display to do that though. may also be under Dev options

Q3: Android is designed to hog RAM. apps don't always close and only do so when the memory is required by another app. sometimes they do close (but show up as running because their notification services stay active) if you hit 'back' and almost always stay minimized if hitting home. some offer a setting to exit if you hit the menu button. Android manages memory far differently than iOS or Windows. it takes getting used to. i can guarantee you won't run out of RAM on an HTC One. Android uses memory and prefers to fill it so apps launch faster and it takes a few days to memorize your pattern, which apps you use often, etc. Android is only designed to kill apps or close them when memory is required by another app. if you launch Angry Birds, Android likely kills a few backgrounded apps to make room for the game, and since the game is so big, it often exits normally if you click 'back.' some apps run as persistant if they perform phone or messaging features and display a constant icon in the notification area to indicate that and provide quick access later if in another app. unlike the iPhone, Android doesn't have the benefit of the badge alerts and while another launcher can include a rudimentary badge alert feature, it isn't as good as iOS and i always hated the cluttered-with-icons notification bar in Android, but since i cannot do anything about it i just live with it and whenever possible hide the status bar.

Not sure about HTC, but on Samsung devices you go into the display options and there is an option to enable battery percentage :-) otherwise it's root and use custom Rom or third party app!

Yes nothing under settings display for battery %, nothing under development either. Q2: I already rooted the phone so does it mean I have to get a whole custom ROM now just to have the battery % show? In that case it might just be easier to show the % though an 3rd party app.

Q3: And ok, I guess I just always though the more stuff you have taking up RAM memory the faster the battery would drain but I'm not really even sure if thats the case.

And I agree with you, I def wish I had badges like in iOS to show me when something new came to that app. I do like the notification bar but sometimes its full so you forget some important stuff that should have been answers sooner.

What launches are you talking about that has a work around badges notification for android?

Oh and perhaps the worst thing about this phone: HTC One capacitive home and back buttons only light up when its very very VERY dark, so when it dark but not dark enough you cant see the buttons. There is no option ANYWHERE to adjust the light sensitivity at which they turn on. I search and soooo far I haven't found anything. I did find an app the when rooted you can turn those lights on, but the app is dumb because it keeps the light ON even when then I lock the phone so just wasting battery lol

I wish I could figure out what controls the sensitivity, there is got to be a files some place that can be tweeked to fix this and make them turn on earlier

ps. found a ROM that should fixes the buttons :-)

Moved to HTC One section.
You might be able to find battery percentage In Settings > Display on your device. I know Samsung devices have this you might too, but if not you could root like taylor said. Don't know about your first question as I don't use that app.
What nickdalzell said pretty much sums it up. Don't ever use app killers though as it can make your battery life worse and just isn't good for the device.

The stock software as of right now does not support a battery percentage out of the box. THe update to Android 4.2 that HTC is working on does.

If you want a software overlay, GSAM battery monitor monitors your battery very well and also has the option to both display battery level in the status bar, or to overlay the stock battery with a percentage.

Default How to change from Google voice input keyboard?

So randomly in the last 2 days my Google keyboard has started acting up and I don't know why. If it has been awhile (greater than 5 minutes) since the last time I typed anything on my phone when I select a spot to input text the voice input comes up and I have to pause it and then press a button to trigger the keyboard to come up. I have no idea what is suddenly causing this and can not think of anything I may have changed to cause it. I have looked through every setting I can think of and nothing seems to correct the issue. Does anyone have any idea what else to try?

Here is what I see:

Go Launcher EX has a 'Go Launcher Notification' plugin that enables badges for apps such as Facebook, missed calls and texts, emails through the Gmail app, and Google Voice. unfortunately, it requires that an icon still displays in the notification area and that is always so unnecessarily cluttered. i often turn it off in the launcher preferences somewhere. i now use TSF Shell, a very expensive launcher but far more neat to look at and use than Go, but it only supports app badges with Gmail only. no other app other than missed calls/texts. i have rooted mine and turned off any icons that display in the notification area except vital stuff like battery, signal, wifi status and free RAM (i monitor it as my phone has very little and if it goes over a certain percentage used it crashes). the badges still work without the icons up top in TSF shell.

i think Samsung's Touchwiz launcher that should have come with most Samsung phones, and perhaps HTC's Sense would to, supports some badges, but i forget how i enabled them in Touchwiz, and i haven't used Sense yet.

Rom Toolbox Pro is the app to get if you want a custom battery gauge. it doesn't require flashing a ROM. but as with anything root, i recommend backing up everything first!

Default Random questions

Hello everyone, I've owned an HTC One for just about a week now and have a few random questions I was wondering if anyone could answer for me.
Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase and I've been getting great battery life but I noticed that when I double click the Home button and the multitask screen comes up it always shows programs I thought I already quit earlier and they won't disappear until I swipe them away. I was wondering, do they actually stay active in the background until swiped away or is there more to it? And if they are indeed still active in the background then is there a way to properly close these applications that I'm now aware of? (I usually just hit Back until it exits the app).
Also, is there a way to either get rid of Blinkfeed or just make sure it doesn't eat up my limited monthly bandwidth? And is there a way of removing my Facebook feed from the default HTC Gallery? It's a nice gallery but all the Facebook crap just clutters it up and I'm really not interested in all of it. I use a different one for the time being but I'd like to use the stock one if possible.

Thanks for any help/opinions in advance

Default Question from a newbie.....

Just got this phone and love it. I just had a couple questions....

1. I do a lot of Craiglist shopping and all my other androids when you clicked on a phone number someone posted on the site, the options of calling or text would appear, but this phone you can scan before calling or call the number...how can change it for text to appear instead of always copying and pasting?

2. Also on other androids you would type a number in and then have the option to text or call...when I type a number all I can do is call...is the only way to text someone is to always click on the text menu?

Thanks in advance...

I never had any issues using the stock mail app with yahoo.

I am, however, using the yahoo app as its much more robust. Plus it has push notification whereas stock mail app doesn't for yahoo.
