HTC users complain in-built keyboard app is showing ads

The company has been known for their innovative approach and premium looking phones. On the one hand that is an easy thing to do.

United Not Sweating Over Real's Revival Of Interest In De Gea
Asked what he thought would happen with De Gea this summer, the former Madrid youth player said there would be no movement. Lukaku made his debut in United's win at the Stub Hub Center, featuring as a second-half substitute.

HTC has been busy working on the U11 adding software improvements and possibly a mid-range variant (aka Ocean Life), and more Edge Sense functions. This is something that no one expected from a multinational giant which has such a reputation in the markets.

For what it's worth, it was never the OEM's intention to pester you with advertising while typing and drastically reducing your precious screen real estate. Search Engines, Video Streams and various other places are nearly expected to show ads now.

Phone-maker HTC says it will fix an "error" that let advertisements pop up on the keyboard on some of its phones.

For its part, HTC has responded to widespread anger with the promise of a "fix" coming soon, as "this is absolutely not the experience we intended". Hopefully, HTC makes it impossible for ads to show up on its QWERTY keyboards again. Uninstalling these updates would result in the app getting back to the way it used to be.

Evacuation Order Issued For Williams Lake
An evacuation order was given Saturday night for the city and surrounding areas including the village of 150 Mike House. Central Okanagan Emergency Operations said in a news release that as many as 10 structures had been reported damaged.

In a statement to Gadgets 360, HTC confirmed that some people were indeed seeing ads on the keyboard app, however, it assured that the company has no plans to shove ads this way. After all, they are the ones who chose to partner with Touchpal and are guilty of letting the ad update through, whether by commission or omission. Most likely, code from regular (non-HTC) version of TouchPal, which does include an ad-supported trial version alongside a subscription-supported paid option, made its way into the HTC Sense version.
