HTCSense for HTC Desire HD and Desire Z smartphones is live now and is designed to act as a way to manage your Android device from the web. It includes features such as contacts and SMS sync, remote locking and wiping, app recommendations and more.
The website is divided into five sections: Dashboard, Footprints, People, Messages, and HTC Hub.
- Dashboard lets you remotely wipe, lock and ring your phone, plus it lets you find your phone on a map, forward SMS, and forward calls.
- Footprints simply backs up photos that’ve associated coordinates and notes.
- People is a simple contacts backup tool that offers two-way sync (though many people that already use Microsoft Exchange or Gmail will find this feature unnecessary).
- Messages portion of HTCSense is by far the most interesting: it lets you manage SMS conversations from the web. You can even send and reply to SMS in real time, meaning you can send/receive SMS without touching your phone…neat!
- HTC Hub lets you remotely push themes, ringtones, skins, scenes, wallpaper, and more, right to your phone from the web. You can even “mark” applications so that you can remind yourself to download them later.
