Yeah I had downloaded it by the time I posted the thread and installed it yesterday. didn't get to play with it too much before last night. The keyboard is killing me. I downloaded Swype because I already owned the Play version.
Here's the other stuff that has struck me:
It runs pretty well, and is fairly stable. Can't log in to Twitter, but all the other apps I installed run well.
Battery meter percentages are now based on total battery capacity. Previously the percentages reflected percentage of the used capacity, so if you were at 80% and your display was taking up 40%, then it was 100*.4*.2 = 8% of your battery. Now it will just read 8%
Who thought a circle for a home button was a good idea? Why not a pentagon, like home plate on a baseball diamond?
I'm not sure how I feel about an app having multiple instances in the task switcher. I think it'd be easier if Chrome was only listed once then I used Chrome's tab switching interface to find the tab I wanted.
I like the new simplified quick shortcuts. The list was getting too big in KitKat so they brushed it down to the basics - wifi, bluetooth, airplane mode, DND quick toggle, brightness slider and just one or two others IIRC.
I believe Motorola is already doing the lock screen camera shortcut that showed up on my Nexus in L. Instead of a "camera widget" just drag from the right.
And that's about it I think. The Play store auto-downloaded the apps that were installed on it prior to flashing/wiping and it took like 4 hours. I never get good speeds from the Play store, which has prevented me from buying media. If I'd been paying attention I would have canceled the download for GTA3. that's like 1.2GB and ended up being time wasted. But once everything was installed, I got to play with it for about 2 hours while I watched the Cardinals lose, and for the most part, it's Android just like I knew it. I'm sure once devs get to use all that's new under the hood that it'll be a different story. I think barring catastrophe, I'll keep it installed and just use it.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.
