Good and EVO

HTCSense.com is no longer available, but do HTC EVO users care?

Htc-sense-byebye Have you tried visiting HTCSense.com lately? If you do, you’ll get the following message:

Features previously available on HTCSense.com are no longer available. If you have been using HTCSense.com to sync your Contacts, Messages, Footprints or Call History, you can download your data through April 30, 2012.

Last year, I asked what the deal was with HTCSense.com. How come most of its features weren’t even available to HTC EVO users? And how come the features that actually were available, like the phone locator or remote lock and wipe, never seemed to work right? Well, apparently HTC decided to stop trying. Luckily, since we EVO users didn’t even have access to features like Footprints or Call History, we don’t have to worry about downloading our information before it’s deleted. And even more luckily, there are much better and more reliable location-based security programs out there, like SeekDroid or Where’s My Droid. Oh well. Perhaps HTC has something even better up its sleeves for the next EVO. [HTC]

    Never had it for the EVO but when I got my EVO View I checked it out and it seemed like they had given up long ago. I did download a few things from the hub but even that hasn’t been updated in a long time.

    Every time I tried to use it, it didn’t work, so no loss for me.

    Heh. Well that solves that problem.

    I was thinking about signing up for these services at HTCSense.com for months after I got my EVO 3D. Now, I can’t. It seems like they were never that reliable anyway. I’d rather go with a solution that I can use across multiple ROMs (and devices) anyway and not just HTC Sense based ROMs. I do wonder what their “new” service will be like and if older handsets will be allowed to partake. Hmm.
