    Smile Quirks with the new ICS update, Droid Bionic

    ICS is awesome and makes my Bionic feel like a new Phone. However...

    Found a Few Quirks:

    Printing:
    Motoprint settings are now in the main settings area.
    There is not an app now. you must print from the application that opened the document.
    QuickOffice Pro: Does not support motoprint. Use the stock motorola version of the QuickOffice and it has a print button.

    Voicemail notification:

    Cant find a way to erase from notifications without actually listening to the voice mail. annoying...

    Launcher:

    No landscape launcher?

    Lets Golf 2 CAN be uninstalled now! yes!

    Anyone have any input on these items? Other items?

    None of this issues are of concern here I dont use moto print, I use a laptop. And who doesn't listen to there voicemail? Shame on you and I could care less about landscape. All in all I love my bionic as much as I did when I first got it.

    You should be able to uninstall the Blockbuster app too.

    I have tried to download a few widgets from Google Play since recieving ICS and after the download and install, I can not find them anywhere in order to actually place them on a home screen. I know the widgets are listed with the apps and all widgets that I had before are there, but no newly downloaded ones. Is there another way to access widgets? This isn't the case with downloaded normal apps, but just widgets. Any thoughts?

    I just received the update today. It looks good so far except Tasker is unable to turn on the GPS on the phone when I start an app that uses GPS. Looks like Google has locked the gps to third party apps for some reason.

    Apparently the "group" shortcut feature doesn't work.

    This is where you can create a group in the Apps List and add apps to the group. Then you select "Add Group to Home" in the group menu to have a shortcut placed on the home screen.

    From my post in another thread:
    Tasker can no longer enable/disable GPS directly. It has to vector the request through Secure Settings. I have tested the new approach, and it works.

    This is where you can create a group in the Apps List and add apps to the group. Then you select "Add Group to Home" in the group menu to have a shortcut placed on the home screen.
    Just press and hold on an icon in the Apps drawer, drag it to where you want it and drop. Repeat the process with the next app that you'd like to place in the same folder (just drop it on top of the first app icon). A given app can be in multiple folders, and folders can be created in the Favorites bar so as to be available from every home screen. I've eliminated all of my groups and replaced them with folders. Oh, and opening a folder gives you the opportunity to tap at the bottom and name it.

    About Voicemail, I have to either delete or save it to remove the notification. Apparently it's an ICS thing that simply listening to it doesn't remove the notification.

    As for Let's Golf, I was able to uninstall it on GB. :/

    What happens when you press and hold the Home button? Haptic feedback, yes or no? "No recent apps" in blue text, or nothing?

    And do you have any utility apps running that might be intercepting the recent-app command? I had occasional problems with some of my Tasker profiles under GB in this regard; haven't yet seen it in ICS, but I wouldn't be surprised if it cropped back up.

    Thanks for the response, it looks like I need to be rooted to accomplish this with secure settings. I am stock at the moment.

    Another issue I'm seeing is I frequently get a low memory warning which I never got on Gingerbread.

    Could you take a screenshot of the low memory warning?

    Don't you mean headphone output is replete with tons of "whine", on ALL audio sources? that's why I am getting a replacement phone in a few days from Verizon--a Razr Maxx is the most I could get from them at this point. better than a kick in the ***.

    My wife is having trouble with the camera. It always wants to use the flash even if it's off. It stops if you turn it on auto then off. But if you go to anything else it's back anyone else have that?

    Ok, I no longer see the low memory warning after deleted some apps and stop using my live wallpaper sigh. Now I've learned the option to just charge when connected to usb is no longer there. That is something I used everyday.

    Dave, How did you manage that? I've been insured for years and i'm determined to eventually get a different phone thru verizon, especially to avoid the share everything plan and keep my current unlimited everything plan.

    DJKing: I just called the day of the update to ICS and complained about the whine. The lady immediately said she'd get me into another phone. I said Maxx and she said no problem. I didn't have to pressure her at all. Months ago I complained a lot about the 4G drops and no supervisor I spoke to would authorize a Maxx. Times have changed, I guess, because of the Maxx HD probably. Verizon doesn't mind replacing phones with "old" models I guess.

    For me, the Maxx will be a moot point, because I want a Note 2 ASAP. I'm tired of the Moto nonsense (whine in headphone output). Anything that interferes with my music listening is going to **** me off!
