The HTC One A9 has received a lot of attention for looking a lot like the iPhone, and rightfully so. It looks a lot like the iPhone, but there’s a lot more to the phone than that. This isn’t an iPhone running Android; it’s an HTC phone through and through. The A9 feels like the culmination of everything that HTC began to do back in 2013 with the release of the original HTC One (M7). HTC has come a long way since then and it shows in the A9.
This is our HTC One A9 review. (more…)
An update for the Zoe app, made by HTC for One device owners, is now available to download on Google Play. Inside the update, which is rather large in terms of additions, users can now create highlight videos locally, with nothing going up into the cloud. (more…)
As HTC promised during its Double Exposure event yesterday in NYC, the company’s Zoe video-sharing and photo-editing application has received an upgrade that broadens the range of compatible devices. (more…)
HTC released their brand new Zoe app this morning to Google Play, an app that is like a mix between Instagram and Vine and filters and clip sharing and, yeah. Actually, it’s HTC’s Highlights feature from the One (M7) and (M8) that has been renamed to Zoe, which used to be a mini-clip camera feature that was used to make up Highlights which are now Zoes. Confused? Yeah, you should be.
The app’s life is early and in beta at this time, as is noted by HTC in their announcement post. In other words, don’t expect it to be flawless. (more…)
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. This means anyone rocking a Galaxy S5, LG G3, Moto X or any other top Android phone can soon utilize one of the features that differentiated HTC’s lineup from the rest. (more…)
The fourth and final Technical Translation from HTC is on YouTube, this time focusing on Zoes, HTC’s photo/video sharing platform built into the company’s camera software.
Zoes were introduced last year, as a neat way to capture more of life’s moments. For example, if you went to a concert the night before and were snapping a lot of pictures with Zoes turned on, the One would take up to 20 photos and a 3-second video at once. The device would then stitch together its creation and save itself to the gallery for sharing later on. (more…)
While we still expect to see the HTC One arrive sometime before the end of this month, that apparently can’t stop RadioShack from the start of their hypebeasting. While in a store, a customer snapped a picture of some One signage, showing off its killer features like HTC Zoe, BoomSound and BlinkFeed. (more…)
A developer on XDA has been hard at work, porting HTC’s newest Sense 5 software to the DROID DNA. Currently, it has some bugs that need working out, but nothing that makes it unusable. For instance, if you had big hopes for HTC Zoe on your DROID, that is currently unavailable. But no worries, the developer is plugging away on fixes. (more…)
