HTC and Motorola have been at the forefront of breaking out apps and launching them separately in Google Play. It’s a great strategy for the firms, and good news for folks who own devices from those companies, because it allows for much faster updating.

HTC on Thursday released the HTC Mail app to Google Play. That means, in the future, you can expect updates to the app without having to wait for large systemwide software updates. HTC does this for several of its applications already, including HTC Camera, HTC Gallery, HTC Weather and more, and the system works really well.

Hit the source to install the latest version of HTC Mail, and keep an eye out on the app for future updates.
