For OEMs like HTC, chief among the benefits of hosting apps on Google Play are faster updates. Traversing the lengthy and unpredictable path toward OTA approval is obviously undesirable if the enhancements are minor, which is probably why HTC continues to decouple applications from its firmware. The latest to receive the treatment is HTC Scribble, a digital scrapbook app.
Scribble is fairly self-explanatory. It’s a virtual sketchpad, basically – you can add photos, text, lists, and illustrations to pages, plus calendar events and reminders. For artistic types or those who prefer to write in their own handwriting, Scribble supports stylus input.
As you would expect, the app is incompatible with non-HTC devices. If Scribble came preloaded on your smartphone, though, expect to see an update notification soon.
