    I have it on Peek. Feels super awesome waving your hand to see the time ;) :p

    Wish notifications would be included in that aswell. Have seen no affect on battery life as such.

    Im using the Peek mode. Sometimes when i unlock the phone after sliding the lock screen, a blank black screen appears where it seems that the phone is hanged then or try to press the window or back key, it gets pressed and vibrated after 4-5 seconds. It happened two times and I thought may be Glance is the reason. I'm thinking to change from Peek to never turn off if that doesn't effect the battery much.

    Try changing glance mode to interval or never and see what happens. I'm not sure if never option affects battery too much or not. My suggestion is, first try using interval; then, if battery life is still good, then try never option :)

    I don't know what is wrong with my Glance setup, but I am using Glance and can't see any notifications on my Glance screen? Why is that?

    Can you guys see a notifications in your Glance screen? For example, you have 1 Message Received, but in Glance ( peek ) Screen, you can't see the Message icon in there.

    I just hope u can change the time 'Glance' is displayed in the future, if I just want to know what time it is, I don't want to see the time for 15 minutes, max a minute.

    Glance doesn't currently show notifications. But they may add this feature in future updates.

    Thanks. I just notice it now as I get back on Glance section.

    Anyway, On my first update, there was a Clock + Notification settings on glance screen, so I thought You can see the Clock and Notification in Glance mode. But now, No option there anymore. So Yea, I guess they altered it.

    If you've updated your phone to Amber, then you'll need to update some system apps. You may wait until Store checks for updates; but if you want to get the glance as soon as possible, try installing "SysApp Pusher" and force updating "extras+info" and then "glance".
