    I can't seem to open the app "HTC Apps", nor can I disable it... it bothers me that there's an app on my phone I can't open but the app name and the name under "App Info" is different. Any ideas? M8 on VZW

    It is likely a system app. If you look at all of the apps listed under Settings>App Manager>All, you'll see a bunch of system apps that you can't open, because you're not meant to open them--they're for the system. Not sure why it shows up as "Updater" in the App Info, but that does reveal more of what it's for. Presumably, it's important to update either the versions of the HTC apps (that aren't updated over Google Play) or the actual data that they use. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Right- I was just confused as to why it shows up in the App Drawer as "HTC Apps"... if it shows up in the drawer then I would imagine that would mean it was meant to be opened.

    That's the App Drawer? Are you using an alternate launcher? It doesn't look like the usual App Drawer that I've seen.

    Yep, I'm using Nova with the list style for the drawer!
