    I installed Glance after the Amber update on an ATT 920. When trying to launch the app, it says I must turn it on first in the settings. But I cannot find it in settings anywhere. I've looked under display and various other locations. Am I missing something? Is it disabled in the AT&T Amber update?
    I'm having the same issue. No setting to turn on.

    You need extras+info app and some other apps for you to see it in settings.

    Is anyone else having the tap to unlock problem? I know my screen is scratched but it wont pop up the lock screen when I tap it twice.
    Mine does the same thing. I tap the screen and nothing happens. Then I thought it might have to do with the fact that I use a lock password. Disabled that. Same result. I guess I'm ok that it doesn't tap to wake for now. Unless Nokia devs come out with some cool feature that requires it, then I'll have more to say. :)

    I'm gunna assume you guys are double tapping right? It seems to be working for me, sometimes it doesn't but for the most part it is. Granted I don't need it since I'm a lefty and I can hit the unlock button just as easily.

    Also, I got an update for it today. They got rid of the show clock/notifications button.

    Glance was at the very bottom of the settings page. It isn't a sub category, it is its own category.

    Also, funny thing about the Notifications, I updated yesterday, and later in the day got an App Update for "Glance"...and it took away that toggle to turn on notifications.

    So far, I really like this feature on my 920. But last night I found that when the phone is plugged in the glance screen is always on, every time I rolled over last night it was still lit up in red. Kind of cool, but it is just weird having the screen never turn off. Just a weird concept.

    You are assuming correctly. Nothing happens with a double tap. It does nothing.
    Quick tap, Slow tap.

    I installed sysapp or something like that? Installed a bunch of Nokia apps and voila now it works.

    Is it set to high sensitivity? And the glance does work, it is just the double tap that doesn't?

    Have you used sysapp pusher to update ALL nokia apps? double tap is working fine for me. But that sucks if your digitizer is just dead :( Does peek/glance work for you? If not, you can check by pointing another camera at your 920. You'll see a blue light in the proximity sensor. It's pretty cool. Ultraviolet detection!

    Noticed this as well, i don't like it staying on all the time. It'd be nice if you could change that.

    Like Glance - not a fan of staying on all the time while charging. That is why you select different options - charging should have no impact.

    I believe notifications in the Glance screen are coming with the next firmware update that is being bundled with GDR3.
    Yes ^ that is the case, next update also choice of colors other than white during the day or red for Night Mode
    You can however get notifications in Lock screen settings either "choose an app to show detailed status" OR choose an app to show quick status.

    Next update (GDR3) you'll be able to change colors.
    But you can enable Night Mode which changes the color to red at let say 6am and to go off at 5.59 am the next day so it would only be white for 1 min
    but in night mode you won't see the Glance Background app that only works with Night mode OFF.

    It doesn't hurt the phone screen the numbers move so it doesn't "burn" in on one spot of the screen and it won't stay on while charging if you turn off Glance

    its a very even tap, I spent days trying to get it to work and a friend's 8 year old showed me
    '' you're tapping too soft ''bingo a bit harder with even pressure made it work, but still it's more effort than just pushing the start button.

    No I think it might be broken screen that is the reason even though my touch screen works. I will try that app but I tap it like 10 times and nothing happens.

    Wouldn't glance cause screen burn on the AMOLED screens? I keep thinking that it will on my 822

    Don't worry, it won't. Assuming you have multiple Glance Screen Backgrounds.

    I was saddened by the fact that that only allow 4 backgrounds. I tired doing the justice league icons, but I only got 4 :/

    Is it just me or is the Glance screen clock moving up the screen? Mine is currently(plugged in) covering up my background image.

    I honestly don't see the point of Glance in my daily use so far. When I pull it out of my pocket, I naturally also press the "lock" button, which displays my wallpaper. Assuming I don't, then yes, I get to "Glance"...at what? The time? Notifications currently don't show, AND I have to press the lock button or double tap to switch over to my lock screen. When my phone is on the desk, I can tap it to show the clock, but right now, no notifications.

    I think Glance could be super awesome if it integrated better with your notifications/lock screen.

    1. Make it just the "glance" screen. That way, when you pull it out, it has time, wallpaper, notifications, and you can swipe to unlock.

    OR

    2. It automatically just goes to your lock screen instead of the "Glance". Like I said, right now the thing is a bit moot. You go from Time, to wallpaper + time + notifications, to main screen.

    Also, given I spend an hour at the gym, and 2 hours in my car everyday. Would be pretty neat if Nokia figured out something for those who listen to music often. At least music controls on glance.

    For now, that's exactly why I use Glance. I look at the time with my phone a bunch, so it's very helpful with that.

    However, I also feel the same as you do about post notifications. Once they add notifications, then I won't see the need.for a Glance screen. Just show me my lockscreen, how much battery/time will I really be saving with a glance screen?
