HTCSense.com has made a comeback, starts by letting you customize your future HTC One X+
Well, it didn’t take them long because HTCSense.com is back. With the impending release of the HTC One X+, who’s specs were recently leaked on Twitter, HTC has also announced the return of HTCSense.com. With the return comes some old favorites and some new features.
HTCSense.com underwent quite the overhaul. In addition to the stuff you could do before, HTC has added a number of new features. One such feature is you can now save your email accounts on your HTCSense.com account along with your Dropbox account. However, the biggest new feature is that you can actually set up your phone without actually having your phone.
The new HTCSense.com allows you to set up applications, emails, home screens, wallpapers, ringtones, etc all from the website. Then, when you sign into your HTCSense.com account on your phone, all that information transfers over. The apps are downloaded, the wallpapers are set, etc. This is a really unique feature that no one has really done before.
What HTC phones will get to use the new HTCSense.com?
Unfortunately, no current HTC phones are scheduled to get support for the new HTCSense.com. For all intents and purposes, the new HTCSense.com is being slated as a HTC One X+ only feature. This will probably disappoint a number of current HTC fans. No doubt that developers and hackers will at least attempt a way to work around that.
Despite its exclusivity, the new HTCSense.com is actually a pretty nifty little achievement. If you’re a future One X+ owner, you can go set up your future phone right now. Then simply sign into your HTCSense.com account when you get it and watch your phone configure itself. To give it a shot, check out the new HTCSense.com website.
Is the new HTCSense.com a good selling point for the HTC One X+ or is it going to alienate current HTC customers for not supporting their devices? Let us know your thoughts.
