HTC Releases Zoe (Beta) App, Like an Unneeded Mash-up of Instagram and Vine and Filters

HTC to Make Zoe App Available to All Android Phones Through Google Play

According to a report from Re/code, HTC has upcoming plans for its proprietary software and applications currently found on the latest One line of devices, plans that involve Android phones from all other OEMs, believe it or not.

When speaking with Drew Bamford, head of the HTC user interface team, it was stated that HTC’s Zoe application would hit Google Play for all other Android devices this week, given that they at least run the latest version of Android.
