    It was very hit or miss and for the most part, I don't think it worked at all for many people. I only managed to get it working successfully once. It was a great idea, that just didn't pan out for the majority of people that used it. There was a massive thread about it over on the Desire HD forums which I believe was the first handset that they advertised as being able to use it (I suspect there are more dotted around the other HTC Device forums).

    The app lookout does pretty much the same thing and offers many of the same features if you want an alternative?

    I wonder if they're going to relaunch it in conjunction with the new One series?

    I'm with you on this one. We are thinking on the same wave length me thinks.

    I just posted this in the Evo 3D forum. Someone wondered if HTCSense.com going down soon had something to do with the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich Android update.

    Great minds and all that jazz :p

    It would make sense (no pun intended) that they revamp it along with their new line of handsets. Given that they're lumping in 25GB (I think that's the figure that was mentioned somewhere) of Dropbox storage, I wonder if they'll integrate it with that somehow.

    Thats not a bad idea - even though I won't utilize the space. :cool:

    In some of the hands on videos from the MWC I noticed that Dropbox had its own application icon in the application drawer. However that doesn't mean it is not linked to HTCSense.com or the HTC Hub in some way shape or form. I never saw a video where someone actually tapped the icon (it was probably non functioning anyway).
