HTC has an online theme builder if you want to explore what the options are. You can also use this tool to send a theme right to your device.

The launcher also gives you a widget that changes up suggested apps based on your location recommends new ones to download from the ay Store. In our review we didn’t find it tremendously useful, but it’s there if you think it’s something you want to try.

The impact on you: The HTC Home launcher is worth checking out if you have a previous generation of the One. It’s not quite Sense 7, but it takes Sense 7’s best feature, Themes, makes it available on older devices. HTC has wisely put its custom apps in the ay Store, so you don’t have to wait for those slow-to-roll-out Android operating system updates to get new features.
