    I'm not seeing any Rescue app either. I did get stuck with Google Play Magazines though. I'd rather have Rescue.. whatever it is.

    I did not get this rescue app in my update. Did anyone else not receive the rescue app?
    It does not appear on my usable apps list either, however, it is on my father's phone that I just updated. This is an app by LogMeIn, that allows remote support from tech support. There was a warning on the app that said not to click a button unless directed to by support.

    You can view the app under the "All Apps" tab when you go into Settings. I cannot figure out a way to get it into my usable apps list. I was thinking about doing a Factory Reset, but I can't figure that out. It doesn't seem to be located in the same place since this upgrade.

    I did notice there is a News and Weather App available. It pulls up Google News and Weather.

    Here are two pictures of what I'm talking about:

    I doubt it. My dad has it and I don't. We live in the same town. My phone was a preorder, and his I ordered a few weeks ago. I'm thinking it could that small update that fixed the contact ringers but was pulled. That's really the only difference between our phones. I applied that update, and he didn't.

    EDIT: I found another app on my dad's list of usable apps, Polaris Office. This is not on my phone however.

    Rescue doesn't show up in my list of apps either, but open Google sear h and type Rescue, it will show up (so will Polaris Office).

    One app that was removed was Mirror.

    Just tried this and it works. I couldn't care less about the Rescue app shortcut not being available, but Polaris Office comes in handy, too bad I have to search for it to use it....first world problems, I know.

    You can't even "use" it when you search for it. It appears HTC just licensed it as a type of "viewer"/"opener" of documents, not as a composer of them. You can use shortcutmaker to create an icon to launch it, but it just says the file is not supported.

    I got rescue, Polaris office, mirror, and play magazine

    but I reinstalled NOVA launcher because
    my scrolling wallpaper stopped working
    and was the only way to fix it and these apps showed up after reinstalling it

    You can't create a new document with it, at least I can't/don't know how, but you are able to edit documents (MS Office) with it. It's a lot like DocumentsToGo on my old Palm Centro, minus the ability to create a document.


    EDIT: After you mentioned creating a shortcut, I looked into it, and found an app on Google Play called "Smart Shortcuts". It works really well from playing around with it for a few minutes. It scans the phone and lists all of the apps on it. Rescue, and Polaris Office show up and are launch-able. It even lists the app Mirror that another user on the forum said was removed with the Jellybean Update.

    Proximity, and some design issues aside...I LOVE that I can take apps notifications out of the status bar. It was always so darned cluttered.

    I used to add them from the menu button, but that option appears to be gone now.

    Secondly, Google Now is awesome but it does not appear as a stock Jelly Bean update. This version is very blah and not useful. I want Google Now to be integrated with Sense 4+.
    What's the difference between Google Now on stock Android and Google Now on the EVO LTE with Jelly Bean?

    WHOA, that setting for the status bar is wonderful!

    EDIT: Scratch that. I thought it would allow me to hide an app's persistent notification while maintaining the benefit of it staying in memory. That seems not to be the case... hoping it's just a glitch.

    I performed a factory reset after updating, just for good measure. Now that I'm getting around to disabling apps I don't use, I've discovered that the FM Radio app can no longer be disabled like I was able to do in ICS. Kinda bummed about that. It's not really an issue as far as performance, but I like to get rid of icon clutter when I can.

    EDIT: Looks like Friend Stream, Mail, Sprint Hotspot, Stocks, Tasks, and some others can't be disabled anymore either. Disabling them never caused me any problems in the past. It's not going to make me dislike the update, but it's definitely disappointing not to be able to control what runs on my phone like I used to be able.

    EDIT2: AH! But there's an option to hide apps in the app drawer menu now. At least I can still keep them all from cluttering my screen.

    Whatever you do, do not go into developer options and select protect sd card. I just learned the hard way as my apps were all acting buggy after selecting it. Took about 6 hours to figure that was what I did wrong. All is well now! Just sayin...:beer:

    Yeah, but it really sucks that suddenly there are all these apps we can't disable. Before I think it was just a few, including Sprint Zone that were non-disableable.

    I WAS able to disable Friend Stream, [EDIT: and Stocks, and Mail] so not sure why you can't. I also discovered that you can now disable apps even when they have updates installed. Before you used to have to remove updates before you could disable something (which was irritating).

    Add to your list of those not allowed to be disabled- Flickr for HTC Sense.

    But thanks for the "hide" tip! I didn't even know it was an option!

    Yes HTC upping the apps we couldn't disable was definitely my first peeve about this update but it's nice that they added the option to hide all their bloat from us. I just hope none of these apps start running in the background.
