    Default Blinkfeed Content

    Question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere:

    HTC Sense 5's BlinkFeed now features Mobile Nations news | Android Central

    I can't seem to find these options in setting up Blinkfeed - under science/tech, I can check a box for "Mobile", but that's as specific as it gets. There is no Android Central or any other mobile sites anywhere. I'm on a T-Mobile One if it makes any difference.

    By selecting mobile you should get Android Central blogs and it'll just say mobile not AC, at least it does on my dna. (running Sense 5 rom)

    "Fire it up, and look under Technology & Science > Smartphone, and you'll see our sister site WP Central, and Android Central there to deliver the news straight to your home screen. "

    This is what I'm not seeing. I don't have a smartphone category. The only "categories" I have under science/tech have no further subcategories - Mobile is one option, but there are no more "specific" sites or options under it.

    Just select mobile and I believe you get them all because that's the only option I have.

    I've got mobile selected, and AC content definitely appears. I'm just not sure how to reconcile my setup with AC's instructions.

    Oh my. You learn something new every day. I thought blinkeed was always just a huge mash-up of all of the things you chose. Everything. I just now learned that you can use the pull down menu and choose only the category you want to see. Wow, I liked BF before, but now this is way better. You can even choose which topics show under the Highlights category. All this time!

    So is AC not individually selectable within science/tech anymore? It's just "mobile" now?

    Cool Re: Blinkfeed Content

    Yep you need to select mobile and you get Androidcentral and many others. You cannot specifically select Androidcentral unfortunately which is what I was hoping for. I hope that they will add the functionality for us to add custom RSS feeds like in Flipboard so we can add what we want instead of being presented with very limited content. I still like a lot of the selections they have provided us with so far, but would like to add my own custom RSS feeds.
