    Fair point, but I also find the tiles tiring to look at. Years ago, I did a short design course in how to avoid making users sick. According to what we were told, lots of animation in unrelated places is particularly stressful for users - our brains are attracted to movement and lots of different movement happening at once is certainly not relaxing. It's like having several lions attacking you at once. :-)The large blocks of bright colours can also cause eyestrain.
    I wouldn't say I have frequent headaches, but I'd really like to disable animations. It's pretty and all first 5 times, then it's just annoying.
    So I'll add that to the wishlist: disable UI animations.

    Strongly agree. I would also like to make the screen less 'aggressive' - fewer sharp corners, harsh colours, etc.

    No i said, i like left swipe notifications will be better, because its easier than top to bottom. Many devices have 4,5"> so one handed using will be imposible with top-down method. At least for me.

    And yes, WP is different in many ways, tried something new (design, live tiles), so why not this ?

    Do tell me how you would get to the Action/Notification Centre in other apps with the left swipe hotlink..... besides it's less obvious if it's in from the left and it makes more sense if it's from the top - the status bar with the signal bars and time are already up the top, toast notifications already appear at the top, so why make the rest of it appear someplace else? It's just confusing for the general user :P

    At the bottom of the screen for every section of the main panorama view other than Now Playing.

    It attempts to search your collection first, and then gives an option to search for more in the store.

    Correction: That is the behavior for the Collection section of the panorama. The Get Music section will search the store first.

    I gave you directions for both the standalone app and the built-in hub.

    Each has different behavior.

    Mind posting a screenshot of what you see when you press the ellipsis from the main panorama screen?

    I would love to see a feature that we can set a time range that the phone can be on do not disturb. Nothing more annoying than your phone waking you up because someone sent you a text or a reminder of someone's birthday and you forgot to put your phone on silent.

    Windows Phone 8.1 is gonna rock! We have all the features which are going to be a part of new OS. But what is the left feature, other than those which are coming, you want..? Rply fast..!!
    The only thing I wanna see is removing limitations all the improvements in the OS it self are quite good and I don't want more than what I saw I just want removing limitations for apps developers should make apps more freely

    It's already in there... Called 'Quiet Hours'. I think you need Cortana to have this option. Looks interesting though. There are loads of neat touches in 8.1 that are not obvious on first use. Initially I didn't like WP 8.1, but after a few days, I have learned to accept the different ways of doing things. Starting to like it.
    Good job MS!!!!!

    Here's a couple of little Features that would be nice to Add ...

    1 - FlashLight when Notification arrives
    2 - LED when Notification arrives ( could also make the Windows Button turn on )
    3 - USB HID and Eventually USB Support ( not microUSB ) , to be able to print a document or copy files from the phones to USB Flash Drive directly ...
    4 - HDMI Support ???? I don't think it's supported for the moment.
    5 - Show Apps by Install Date , Most Used , etc ... In fact i don't know why this wasn't on WP8.1 , there have been a lot of complaints about it , and it should be easy to implement this feature ...

    But Overall , it's a pretty good Update ( Except for The Music / Games Hub )
