Is there a way someone could make a blinkfeed widget so we can still have it on like nova or apex launcher?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you need the Sense launcher to run Sense widgets due to them needing HTC's framework.

Maybe the flipboard widget is an alternative?

Blink Feed is basically an amalgam of Flipboard and Pulse. Though I find Pulse's layout easier to digest, their widgets leave a lot to be desired. Amy suggestions on alternatives for third party launchers?

I am a bit stuck on this too. I really prefer the Apex Launcher but I am liking blinkfeed as well... I am hoping someone can find a way to make them play nice together...

I don't understand why this can't be done.

all we need is a shortcut to the feed. in theory, even with nova Orr similar running, blink feed is still doing its thing in the background, we just can't get to it.

I'm sure some one like nova could do:

say you have 3 home screens set, instead of infinite scroll,
you could have the left most side of home screen one set as a shortcut.

I then you could set the short cut to blink feed (or anything else you might want to use)

it would be pretty much the same as we have but with a custom launcher.

does that make sense?

I use adw and make a custom shortcut for the HTC launcher. I delete all screens with only blink.

Best solution out there. I too love Blinkfeed, but prefer other launchers over the Sense launcher, mainly for things like custom grid sizes and being able to feed my addiction on mycolorscreen.com.

Incidentally, I use Nova and a custom shortcut - same thing.
