HTC BlinkFeed looks to be coming to other Android devices

sense 6.0 blinkfeed

Rather unsurprisingly, following the announcement of the new HTC One M8 device yesterday, HTC are planning on opening up their BlinkFeed home screen launcher to other Android devices.

Included in the press release,HTC highlight their plans for the launcher:

Following its popularity with HTC users, HTC will now make HTC BlinkFeed available to other Android devices, launching on the Google Play store soon.

HTC listed their new Sense 6.0 apps in the Play Store prematurely before the release, but as of now they still are only compatible with HTC branded devices.

Opening up their software to a broader Android audience will be a fantastic move and one that is likely to see the uptake of BlinkFeed accelerated.
