Our friends over at Mobile Republic have announced today that they will be powering the BlinkFeed on HTC. Mobiles Republic are the fine folk behind AppyGamer and other awesome apps like News Republic, Appy Geek, Sports Republic, and Glam Life – all now optimised for iPAD, Android and Windows 8 tablets, so you have no excuse not to get them! 

The HTC BlinkFeed is a new experience that creates a customizable live stream of news and social updates on the home screen of the new HTC One smartphone. It makes sense that they take the lead on this one, since this is what they do in their applications. We have been on AppyGamer since it launched and I have personally been using it daily to keep up with everything going on in the gaming community. 

Smartphone users immerse themselves in a constant stream of updates, news and information, but very little of that stream could be customized or seen on the home screen, until now. We have re-imagined the mobile experience to reflect users’ desires to tailor material to their needs. The new HTC One smartphone’s HTC BlinkFeed user interface, including content syndicated from Mobiles Republic, gives people a taste of the future right now.

HTC BlinkFeed is a new user experience that transforms the home screen into a single live stream of personally-relevant information such as social updates, entertainment and lifestyle updates, news and photos.  HTC BlinkFeed aggregates fresh content from relevant and interesting sources, allowing consumers to snack on information, without the need to jump between multiple applications and web sites. To enable this new dynamic approach,  HTC has worked with Mobiles Republic to offer regional and global news content from an extensive line up of the most innovative media companies in the world.

Make sure you check out some of Mobile Republic's fine apps, and keep an eye out for the BlinkFeed if you're a HTC user. This will revolutionise how you use your phone to get your information quickly and efficiently.
