    So far, nope. Looks like I cannot upload a picture easily in the WP 8.1 legacy windows central app and for their W10 one it takes forever because there are 3000+ replies and it needs to load all before I can get to post.

    Again, it's the little warts like this that makes it annoying. Some would say "why not use tapatalk"? My answer is: "But if I like the layout better on the mobile nations apps, why can't I use those?"

    Even though Reddit finally released their first party "official" client app, I still find Alien Blue a lot more refined and feature rich.

    Maybe after an update or two, it'll be up there with Alien Blue.

    It's worth checking out if you browse Reddit at all.

    I'm stunned by today's experiment with the XL and the Band 2. And not in a positive way either...

    Looks like Alien Blue will be going away. Reddit scraps Alien Blue in favor of in-house built iOS and Android apps | VentureBeat | Apps | by Ken Yeung

    Battery life was worse, way worse with both paired. The G4's battery isn't great, but the XL was worse. I barely got through the day and I barely used the XL today.

    This just feels not ready for prime time. I'm so...disappointed.

    I used the M8 and it wasn't so hot battery wise, but the drain wasn't so bad. But still...

    I'm just shocked. I've picked up a new preview build today and maybe that'll be better, but still...I may need to not use the band with the XL.

    I'm not trying to be negative, but I was so surprised, and not in a good way. I think I'm going to stop my experiment and give the XL more time in terms of software. I like the hardware and unless in certain situations I'd sell the phone, but I would have gotten into a fight with Nadella fall of last year when the XL came out.

    Oh wow, I totally thought Alien Blue was purely a third party app... Apparently not!

    Well, I hope they update the "official" apps to be more Alien Blue like. Maybe I just need to play with the new app some more and tweak the settings a bit?

    If you posted this anywhere else on this forum you'd have a bunch of people telling you to hard reset and a bunch of others quipping how great their battery life is...

    Then there would be others telling you the next build will fix everything...

    Seems like nothing has changed on WP...

    Dang MIA, sorry to hear about your experience with the XL. Can't say I'm surprised that it wasn't completely smooth sailing though.

    True.. Makes me wonder though...

    Hey MIA, what build are you running on the XL? Latest Production?
