New in HTC Sense for Android: Rearrange Homescreens in Leap

Advertisement

The latest upgrade to HTC Sense for Android is pretty modest: Gingerbread phones will get a redesigned app tray, the left button on your homescreen look different, and there are some new widget. One more to add to the list: you can rearrange homescreens within the Leap feature. HTC was first to introduce Leap, which allows you to get a zoomed out view of all of your homescreens with an ease multitouch gesture, last year at Mobile World Congress. This year, they add the ability to tap and drag your homescreens within Leap to quickly rearrange them. Check it out in the video below!

Update: As Dejan points out, this feature was a hidden easter egg in the last update to Sense: the Desire HD, for example, has it.

We also look a new add-on to the Settings, called Tell HTC. While it caught our eye, it’s simply a dianogstic tool HTC is including in their devices, akin to error reporting in Windows Phone.
