Dot View app picks up small update on the HTC One for Windows

If you are one of the many who sport the underrated HTC One (M8) for Windows, head to the Store today to grab a rare update for their app for the Dot View case.

Version is now live in the Store. This is a small bump from the 1.3 update that came in December, which brought numerous new functions including notification support for new apps.

It has been awhile since we've run the Dot View app, although we do see some newer holiday themes like April Fool's Day and Valentines, which would have automatically loaded on those holidays.

One small change we did notice was the removal of notification support for the Facebook beta app. Previously, this app registered with the Dot View case to show FB notifications on the display screen through the case. However, with today's update this option is no longer there. Instead, you need to use the mainline branch of the Facebook app. Considering the beta has not been updated since January, this is likely not a big deal.

Other than that, we are going to chalk up some bug fixes and performance improvements to this update. Let us know if you find anything else.
