Just about every Android OEM has an official flip case of some sort these days, but they're usually a rip off of Samsung's S View case. At least HTC is doing something different with the Dot View. The companion app for this accessory has been updated to v2.10 today with a few new display options.

2015-07-01 14.36.34 2015-07-01 14.36.39 2015-07-01 14.36.57

Here's the changelog for the latest update.

  • Tap the clock to switch between time, date, temperature and battery status
  • Swipe up on mealtime notifications, then open the case for detailed info (only available with SenseHome 7.1 or later)
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

So now you'll be able to get more information on the main Dot View screen just by tapping. The display at the top shows the time and temperature by default, but now it cycles through date/day and date/battery level too. The new mealtime integration refers to HTC Sense restaurant recommendations, which you need to turn on in the BlinkFeed settings.
