One of the perks of having key system apps available on Google Play is getting quick updates, without having to go through a carrier certification process. HTC seems to be taking advantage of putting its main apps on Play well, updating both its Gallery and BlinkFeed apps today with a couple minor, but welcome changes.
BlinkFeed received fixes allowing for smoother scrolling, along with fixes for a couple of bugs. Also, users can add “more social content when [they] want,” making for a fairly noteworthy update.
The Gallery app is getting only one change, but it is fairly substantial when compared to any one of BlinkFeed’s additions. Users using the “Foreground” picture editing tool, can now tap anywhere on their display to apply the effect, rather than only in specific areas as the app functioned before.
If you haven’t already, head on over to Google Play and grab the updates.
