Is there anyway I can add my choice of news (BBC) to my blink?
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
Jazzdude, I dont see either of those options. Huffington post, AP, Reuters and some Euronews is what Im offered
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.
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.
Per HTC support:
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
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.
That's exactly what I don't want to do. I have all my contacts managed properly through the gmail web interface.
I figured out what I wanted to be able to do...
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.
You can access this from SETTINGS > ACCOUNTS & SYNC as well.
not on my phone
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).
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.
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.
Swipe right from the menu where you pick news sources to "services and apps" should see twitter/Facebook etc
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.
Install Twitters official app, see what happens.
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.
its default on the sprint version i use.
Did you wipe it? On mine it was there at first but not after I wiped it
