What's new with the GB update?
What are the new features you like, let us know. We might not have found some of the things you have yet.
So far I've noticed:
-changes to the most recent app function when long pressing the home button. You can look at recent, all, downloaded, or even make your own groups. Plus there is a market button.
-multiple home screen profiles. One for work, home and weekend.
-the dock has for icons that can be swapped. Except for the app launcher, that one seems fixed.
What have you found?

Double clicking home button brings up thumbnails of all home screens at once. So does swiping from docked icons towards top of screen.
Text editing is much improved now that you can easily place the cursor wherever you need by dragging a cursor tab around.
Ability to uninstall apps by long-pressing their icons from the app tray.
Ability to clear individual notifications one at a time OR clear all at once.

Noticed you can no longer quickly scrolle through home pages by sliding across dock at bottom. I guess this was replaced with the ability to pull up all homes screens at once.
I like the subtle alphabet slide in contacts. I've always tended to scroll through my full contact list over actually searching for a name so this makes it much easier to jump to portions of the alphabet.
Transitions and navigation seem smoother/floatier. Seem to be more like HTC phones I've tried than traditional blur phones.

Is there a way now to add/delete home screens? Not sure why I thought it was supposed to let us now. Maybe Im just used to having it on my Tab. Also wasnt there supposed to be battery % on the battery icon?Melissa
