    Default Can't access BlinkFeed through Nova Launcher Prime - HELP?

    First off, I apologize in advance if I posted this in the wrong section as I'm new to the forums/site as I only recently switched back to Android. Moving along, I went and got myself an HTC One M8 and I'm absolutely loving it. My problem lies within accessing BlinkFeed through Nova Launcher Prime. The internet generally outlines the creation of a shortcut through Nova's Activities and applying it to either the home button or through gestures but MY problem comes when I enter into Nova Activities, scroll down to the list of HTC icons and "HTC Sense" is not listed. I've searched on both the default (BlinkFeed) launcher as well as Nova. "HTC Blinkfeed" is an option, but when I try to long press on any of the listed icons my "permission is denied". Has anyone else experienced this issue? Where has my "HTC Sense" option gone? If anyone could walk me through recovering or recreating it and ultimately getting BlinkFeed onto my new launcher I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you in advance

    Welcome to the forums and back to Android.
    Sense is no longer the title of HTC's launcher. It is now called Blinkfeed. And, it is tied to only that, no other launcher can replicate it.

    That would certainly explain it! Thanks for the clarification, although it is slightly disappointing that there is now a cross roads of sorts between having to choose between launchers/features. I guess I can swap back and fourth for now until something new comes to light, thank you kindly!

    You can actually access the blink feed through the nova launcher if you goto shortcuts and then activities. Scroll down to HTC blinkfeed and click on it. There will be a list of blink feed activities. Scroll down to the one that say HTC blink feed launcher and click on that. Then that app will launch blink feed

    I can add a "shortcut" of "Nova Activities", "Sense Home", "Blinkfeed".

    When I launch it, I get "Permission denied"

    Help! Thanks!!
