The Sense 6.0 keyboard from the new breed of HTC devices has just made its way to the Google Play Store, following in the footsteps of several other stock HTC apps which were ported back in March. This will allow the company to easily make changes to the keyboard whenever necessary, without having to rely on a full blown software update to bring minor changes on the keyboard.
Obviously, the news doesn’t affect non-HTC users as compatibility is limited to HTC smartphones running on the Sense 6.0 user interface. We’ve seen several companies following this method, most notably Motorola, which has almost every core app available on the Play Store. Even Google started doing this for its stock Android devices not too long ago, so it’s something that is widely encouraged in the Android ecosystem.
So if you’re a user of the Sense 6 keyboard on devices such as the One M8, Desire 610, Desire 816 etc, you can be assured that HTC will keep it up to date with periodical changes.
