I bought a second hand M8 from a colleague the other day and it came with a dot view. I like the idea, but in practise dont like it at all!

It's too springy, it flips closed all the time. I can't fold it all the way back so end up with the phone bouncing around, or have to hold the phone and open flap seperatly to keep the phone from moving. It makes taking pictures a pain as I have to hold the flap open and steady the phone and it doesnt fit in the desk dock I bought very well...

On the plus side you can play brick breaker on it, but I'm witing for payday and buying a different case for it!

I hated the OEM dot view case though the cheap eBay version I bought from China works much better. Not very springy and has a hinge that lets it fold over much better.

My new case came with a dot view cover; I like it well enough.

The app suggests that I should be getting notifications on it from any selected app, not just the HTC ones, right? I don't get any notifications; the screen turns on and I see the time and temp but no notification.

Am I doing something wrong?

Open up the dot view app and go to settings and notification settings. On my phone the app is called HTC Dot View. It's in the playstore if you don't have it for some reason.

I have the Dot View app and I had already gone into Settings and checked the apps from which I wish to receive notifications. Still I receive no notifications.

When I receive a new email in Gmail, for example, the case lights up with the time/temp and then cycles to the previous three calls, but no notifications.

Am I supposed to be seeing something different, such as an email icon or some such?

I would've answered quicker if you quoted me since I would have gotten an email...

Does it have notification access? Go into settings --> sound & notification --> Notification Access

Make sure the HTC Dot View Notifications is checked
