    What the title says. I know that you can't turn it off but is it bothersome or is it useful?

    I love Flipboard and Blink Feed just extends it. So I'm happy with it.

    I like Flipboard but Blinkfeed not so much, mostly because I find it clutters the screen. My Flipboard content only displays when I want to see it, which is when I open the app.

    I just made another screen my "home" screen. I still have Blinkfeed of course, but I don't see it unless I flip to that panel.

    When I first bought the One, I really didn't think I'd have any use for Blinkfeed. However, I've found it to be very useful for feeding me assorted news items at a glance.

    I feel exactly the same way. I had wished there was a way to disable it but I've been using it more and more

    I found it annoying. The first thing I don't want to see on my phone is random news. I want to see the weather, my calender and other important personal information.

    I like it. Didn't think I would. I am doing the launcher with a short cut to blink feed trick. Any one complaining youcant feet rid of it is wrong. Although I find it the only thing I like about sense 5

    I see it as rather a slick background but I don't use it at all and I've long since changed my home screen preferences

    The only reason i have it disabled right now is that there is either a lack of, or i havent found it yet, an option to edit the feeds to your own personal likings.

    I like it a lot actually. I don't use it exclusively to get my news, but I find myself browsing it very often when I have a few minutes to kill and want to check out some articles.

    Honestly I like it you get to quickly skim through many stories and if you want to read further you go ahead and do it it's much more versatile then flipboard and also it's not in your way if you flip to another home screen the phone open and closes there it's a really nice touch in my opinion

    I still think it was stupid for HTC to force this blinkfeed onto us by filling a home screen. It should be able to be removed. Period. BUT...in it's defense as an app, I find it useful. I'm now addicted to it. I now have blinkfeed and flipboard running (wifi only to update) at the same time so I'm reading and reading and getting jack shiot done around the house. Thanks.

    You can change the feeds.

    Well, that's true to a point, but you are limited to the items HTC chose to list. I would love to be able to list my RSS feeds, especially with Google Reader going away in a few months. Hopefully more options will be added in future updates.

    I am liking this. But I feel there ought to be more options, like news from the medical world, Aviation so many more comes to mind.
