Sense 5 and another launcher

Recommended Posts

I'm new to Android (been using iPhones since the first model). I have pre-ordered the HTC One and should be getting it in mid april.

My question is about software. If I install another launcher, let say Nova launcher to get hold of the UCCW widgets, will Sense 5 work at the same time? If not, will Sense 5 work if I uninstall Nova? I assume that Blinkfeed won't work. Will HTC apps like Remote TV, camera app with Zoe work if Nova launcher is installed and running?

Thanks!

All you'll lose with a custom launcher is blinkfeed and the custom widgets.

Thank you Paul!

Do you know any good Blinkfeed widget replacements? Flipboard widget?

Coming from iOS, the beautiful home screens at sites such as mycolorscreen.com is very tempting :-)

Na. The Flipboard Widget is a 4x2 Tile with changing content in a specific interval. Nothing eye candy like BlinkFeed, So far I must say, I like Sense 5. Its minimalistic design is eye charming and blinkfeed is a good idea. Hopefully they'll give us the ability to add own feeds instead of just the predefined ones with an update later this year.
