HTC One Gallery - cloud storage photo uploading

HTC’s One Gallery app to be shelved

The One Gallery app, by HTC, looks set to be discontinued by the Taiwanese company. Anyone who uses One Gallery does not have long to look for an alternative, with the service set to be discontinued on 30 April.

The purpose of One Gallery is to allow users of the HTC Gallery app to easily upload their photos to various different cloud storage services. But although One Gallery is facing the chop, HTC Gallery will continue to function.

Android Police spotted a note in the changelogs of both One Gallery and HTC Gallery stating that the cloud-uploading app will stop working on 30 April.

Unsurprisingly, there has been some negative reaction from users of One Gallery to the news of its apparent abandonment. But Android Police points out that the app appears to have limited popularity, at least in comparison to the number of people who have downloaded HTC Gallery.

HTC has been on a mission in recent times to streamline its Android experience. The recently-launched HTC 10 featured a new version of the company’s Sense user interface, which offered a more stock-like experience.

In addition, HTC were frugal when it came to the number of apps that were preinstalled on the HTC 10. At the time of the smartphone’s launch, the Taiwanese manufacturer emphasised that it had worked with Google to ensure that it did not unnecessarily include multiple apps which essentially serve the same purpose.
