    Default How Do I Get Blinkfeed With Nova Launcher?

    After the update we all got I immediately switched over from the sense launcher to nova, which I love. I read on another thread that a few guys are using blinfeed with nova. I can't seem to find blinkfeed anywhere on my phone now. Can someone walk me though what I need to do to put blinkfeed on one of my nova home screens? Or to even locate blinkfeed on my phone?

    Thanks for any help!

    I don't think you can use BlinkFeed on Nova O_o
    Maybe he meant Flipboard, it's an app similar to BlinkFeed you can use with Nova or any launcher

    I think they do it by deleting every page in the sense launcher so there's nothing left but blinkfeed and then creating a shortcut to it with nova.

    Hmm, not sure if that would work but I assume you mean a shortcut to the Sense homescreen correct? That way having only the Blinkfeed page would make sense

    Yeah that sounds right. I've never done it myself but I've read about other people doing it that way.

    You can't use blinkfeed because it is built in to HTC sense. It is not a widget or app you can open.

    Yes you can. Create a custom shortcut to HTC sense. That will open blink, when you're done tap home and your back to nova

    Using blinkfeed with nova works fine. As stated above just create a shortcut to sense.

    Works great, thanks - I would have never thought of that!

    To clarify, when running Nova, long press a blank area, shortcuts, then Activities (Nova, the first entry), and scroll down to HTC Sense. And like the others said, first delete the non-blink screens.

    This also works with GO Launcher

    Does anyone know of an app that can produce a shortcut like Nova does? I like Nova but prefer TSF Shell, and while I wait for TSF to include it, it would be nice to be able to access it from my launcher of choice. Thanks in advance!

    Nevermind, I finally found one. Android Shortcut Creator works great.
