The HTC One M8 was launched three days back and a pretty cool feature that the device sported was its trendy looking case that was also announced the day. HTC calls this case as a Dot View and it requires an dedicated app to function along with the smartphone.
Yesterday, HTC launched a dedicated application for the Dot View on the Google Play Store. This gave an indication that such a feature could possibly come soon to other devices like the HTC One Max, the HTC One and the HTC One Mini. This means that as the Dot View requires physical hardware, HTC might launch similar cases for other device as well.
A dedicated app will ensure that manufacturer can easily make changes as when requires instead of updating the entire firmware. This is another entry from HTC after the BlinkFeed app released earlier.
