Turning Off the HTC One BlinkFeed App
You can turn off the BlinkFeed app on your HTC One (M8) if you don’t want customized content streamed to you. If you miss getting highlights from social media, websites, and developers, you can turn BlinkFeed back on.
On a home page other than the BlinkFeed page, press and hold somewhere other than on an app icon.
This brings up a pop-up menu for making changes to the Home Screen.
Tap Manage Home Screen Pages.
This brings up a thumbnail of your extended Home pages.
Swipe the pages to the right.
The BlinkFeed app is on the Home page on the far left. Get the BlinkFeed page thumbnail to the center of the page.
Tap the Remove button.
If you want to turn the app back on after you have removed it, follow Steps 1 through 3 and tap the BlinkFeed+ button.
