HTC Dot View app for Windows Phone updated with new holiday themes, notification options

If you are rocking one of the fine HTC One (M8) for Windows on either Verizon, T-Mobile or AT&T, you may be in the minority of Lumia Windows Phones, but HTC has not forgotten you. Today, version 1.3 of their HTC Dot View app has hit the Store and with it some very cool new additions.

First up, the HTC Dot View case gets a 'holiday themes' option which allows the Dot View case to 'automatically change on the holidays'. Certainly that is a nice twist on the Dot View accessory.

Next, users of the Dot View case now have many more notification choices to choose from under settings. These include:

  • Facebook
  • Messenger
  • Skype
  • WhatsApp

Those notifications are in addition to the regular system ones like Phone, Voice Mail, Messages, and Mail. Indeed, if we had to pick four popular notifications, the ones HTC chose totally nailed it. Now, when a missed message or Skype notification come in, the HTC Dot View case reveals that without the user having to turn on their phone.

If you have an HTC One for Windows, go and grab the update now or follow our direct Store link.

Thanks, Scott B., for the tip!
