Add Third Party Notifications to Your HTC One M8 Dot View Case with Venom DotView Notifications

Aside from its fantastic screen, delicious industrial design, fantastic build quality, and high end internals, one of the best features of the HTC One M8 (2014) is undoubtedly support for HTC’s Dot View case. For the unaware, Dot View is a dual-purpose case that not only protects your device from harm, but also gives you access to certain notifications, lets you take calls, get weather updates, and much more.

While Dot View is an utterly fantastic concept, notifications presented using HTC’s implementation are understandably limited to HTC-specific apps. However, wouldn’t it be much more useful if all system notifications were viewable through the case’s carefully crafted holes? Well, thanks to Recognized Developer j to the 4n, this is now possible.

As can be seen in the video below, Venom DotView notifications adds in the missing functionality by allowing notifications from any application to show up.

This feature will make its way into to the next version of VenomOne for the M8 (1.70.), but Jan decided to also make it compatible with any Sense ROM running the latest base firmware. As such, there are two versions: one that works with VenomOne 1.6.0, and one meant for stock Sense-based ROMs. Naturally, you need both root access and a custom recovery to apply this modification.

If you’ve got a Dot View case and want to make the most of it, head over to the original thread and give Venom DotView Notifications a try!

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
