Back in 2010 HTC launched HTCSense.com as part of suite of services that allowed users to sync their contacts and call history, locate their phones remotely, and backup their data to the cloud. Now HTC is going to shut down the service by April 30th, giving users a month to retrieve their personal information. HTC in a post on the website notes that the change is because so that company can “improve the services and value we deliver to customers.”
HTC Statement to Engadget: [On] April 30, HTC will be removing some HTCSense.com services. Customer data will be available for download until that date to ensure customers do not lose any important information. This is in response to customer feedback, and HTC is working to improve our services to provide a more enhanced customer experience.
What that enhanced customer experience looks like is yet to be announced, but in the meantime, HTC recommends that customers who want additional security, phone location or backup services should visit the Android marketplace to download the applications that best meet their needs.
