HTC Sense 6 Apps Now Available For Other Androids [Download]
HTC recently brought a bunch of Sense 6 apps to Google Play in an effort to make them easier to update individually as and when they needed it. These apps are currently only available to customers with a new HTC One M8 — at least officially — but as you may have anticipated, they’re now available to other Android-powered devices unofficially.
“Ashutos1997” of the XDA Developers forum has released a bunch of Sense 6 APK files that allow you to run HTC’s latest apps on almost any Android smartphone. The full list of titles includes the HTC Service Pack, Sense TV, HTC Zoe, HTC Gallery, BlinkFeed Launcher, and HTC Music.
Of course, there are some caveats. As is often the case when apps like these are ported to other devices, not everything works as it should. HTC Gallery and BlinkFeed Launcher will install but they don’t run, while the others require you to install framework files and other things first to get them going.
Don’t let that put you off, though. Sense TV, HTC Zoe, HTC Music, and others will run just fine if you install them properly. If you’re interested in Sense 6, then, and you want to check out some of its built-in apps, it’s well worth the effort.
You can find all of the files you need — including APKs, frameworks, and more — by following the source link below. And be sure to keep an eye on the XDA thread for further developments with these ports.
