Home / HTC / HTC One: Turn off BlinkFeed is possible!

HTC One: Turn off BlinkFeed is possible!

One of the most interesting and most controversial of the new HTC is the new home, which indicates the name of HTC Blinkfeed: an innovation that not everyone appreciated and many fear that can not be deactivated. HTC actually thought even to those who do not like this news and let the option not to use this feature.

Many have never even picked up a HTC One, so they can certainly trying BlinkFeed, but despite this a try unbridled hatred for the new news aggregator and never want to use it on your device. This is possible since it is possible to set as the main screen a screen different from that of BlinkFeed, then using the One as any eat the classical home divided into desktop browsable horizontally. Pressing the home button, then you will not be brought to the screen with BlinkFeed, but to a normal screen with widgets and icons set by the user.

BlinkFeed is not really disabled, at least not in the sense that disappears, but you just do not scroll the screen to the left to never see him again. In addition, it is enabled does not consume any resources and remains dormant and inactive until further notice.

In short, the beauty of Android is to choose, in which case you can, as you may choose not to use BlinkFeed and use the One as we have always used a smartphone with Sense interface. If so BlinkFeed was cause for concern for you in choosing your next smartphone, relax: you can buy the One and never see BlinkFeed.

    I don’t like that guy in the video. Treating your viewers like morons for not liking a feature is not a great way to endear yourself to the people who give you pageviews and possibly pay a salary. Just saying “It’s easy just never swipe to the left ever” isn’t disabling Blinkfeed.

    Also just a minor nitpick for your closing comment in the above article.

    “the beauty of Android is to choose as you may choose not to use Blinkfeed…” My thoughts? If you buy a car that stalls every time you turn the wheel to the left, is the solution really only to ever turn the wheel to the right? I don’t think so. You admit the problem and then fix the flaw. I don’t think avoiding it is a solution when something this obvious is truly unfixable. My 2 cents.
