    as long as they fix the duplicate picture and music issue on SD card it's a good update. though annoyed at how long its taken to patch something so simplistic.
    are all of these features so simple!!!

    Any word on a built in timer/stopwatch? This has been my #1 gripe with WP since November 2010 :(

    I think it's great, and that it's finally granting those features that some in our community have been longing for, that said can't wait for the dev preview which may be released sooner since all these leaks are dropping.

    This update feels like what WP8 should have been out of the gate. I am excited to see the update and see how it works in practice. There are only a few features that we are missing to be in par with the other OS's.

    Now MS needs to find the features that separate WP from the pack. Cortana, imaging, etc need to be what gives WP the ability to win some market share.
    This x1000.

    Super fired up for Notification Center, Action Center (whatever it is), Cortana (keep the name!) just for the wow factor, standalone Podcast app (Yissss), separate volume controls and the file browser.

    Very curious about the enhanced keyboard (Swype-like?), audio/video transcoding (MKV,Flac?), YouTube (open links in app?), Xbox Music (functioning playlists? better metadata mgmt? better syncing? music locker? gapless playback?) and Geofencing. Some of these things could be real difference makers.

    Disappointed not to see CalDAV/CardDAV/LDAP/WebDAV support mentioned. Sounds like VPN might be too limited to be useful in a corporate setting. Feels like they are moving away form the Hub concept which is a bit of a bummer. No color wheel for theme colors. No background styles like in W8. No photo backgrounds. No word on making live tiles more reliable.

    Sounds like there's some talk of making apps cross-platform from W8 to WP8 with the HTML/Javascript/Universal App functionality, but it will be interesting to see what that does to app quality and consistency.

    All of these features are great, 8.1 needs 1 more thing though! Other storage needs to be fixed! And before you go replying "oh well its already fixed..." NO IT'S NOT, I'm at 7 gb right now and that is not acceptable! and I have already had to hard reset it because it got over 15 gb (THAT'S POST UPDATE 3)

    I disagree, it's much too busy, and has no ability to ring/notify when it's done, in contrast to the built in timer in Android

    You've probably got a badly written app installed, having issues with SkyDrive and/or are doing a ton of drag and drop from a PC. This is probably always going to be an issue, but MS needs to give better insight into what's being stored there so you can troubleshoot.

    It is fixed here's what to do.

    1) turn off the automatically set time feature
    2) put phone in airplane mode
    3) set date one year ahead
    4)goto temporary files and hit delete

    When I did this my temporary folder dramatically decreased from 2.8GB to 56Mb. Make sure to do it overnight so as to not disrupt the day.

    thank you but "temporary files" and "other" are two different things...

    you are probably right, and in that case I should be able to see which app is screwing me over, I'm pretty confident ms is working on it because there is no way that they would just ignore an issue like this, right? Right?? D':

    Not anymore, the other is changed to temporary files in update 3 which can be rapidly removed by following the above procedure.

    There has been no word on actionable notifications (replying to notifications without going to the app) since. Is this still to be expected? Please anyone that has anything on this should reply :)

    I have it, it sucks. Same problem as every other single 3rd party timer. Inaccurate over longer periods of time, sometimes the alarm doesn't go off, other times they randomly fail, etc. I'm one of WP's biggest fans, but it's downright pathetic that a basic phone feature such as timer/stopwatch has been neglected by MS for so long. I switched from an iPhone to WP on day one of WP's release, and the fact that such a BASIC and EASY to implement feature is still missing after 3+ years, is just plain inexcusable. Especially when it's on every single smartphone and dumbphone platform in existence.

    My daily life makes use of timers constantly, and having this feature poorly implemented via 3rd party devs in its current form, is a huge annoyance. It's one of those seemingly insignificant things that becomes a huge annoyance over time and lessens the enjoyment of phone. Like a grain of sand in your shoe.

    Are virtual buttons included in the SDK? If not, could they possibly be included in the actual update? I'm really looking forward to virtual buttons but I didn't see any forum posts about this yet (I didn't look too hard though).



    yeah, i Just saw it in a video posted about the SDK...

    But dude, is just for new hardware!
