HTC’s News Reader App Will Soon be Available for All Android Devices

HTC blinkfeedlaunched a new smartphone yesterday, and along with an impressive piece of hardware they also unveiled new versions of their proprietary camera, news and other apps. Some time in the near future those apps will be available for all Android devices.

This includes Blinkfeed, HTC's news reader app.

Based on the screenshots and description, Blinkfeed looks to offer a similar user experience to what can be found on Samsung's new Galaxy Pro line of tablets.  It brings many news sources to your home screen, enabling readers to get all of their social feeds, calendar events, news, music and content arranged and constantly updated in one place.

The app is intended to work with a user's mobile data plan, but it also has an offline reading mode and it can be restricted to only downloading via Wifi.

Based on the timestamps on the reviews and Youtube videos, the app has been around for at least a year, but to be perfectly honest this is the first I had heard of it. I look forward to giving it a shot when it is available.

You can find the app in Google Play. Of course, if you don't have an HTC device it won't do you much good at the moment.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
