    What the article is saying is that Google updated their own core apps so that when Rom develpers utiluze Users can download them. Since they are NOT AOSP, ROM developers are not allowed to redistribute them in the ROM itself.

    And yes you did say it was AOSP ... Reread the portion I quoted above.

    why be surprised? it's called "different strokes", Brad. Not everyone has the same tastes as yourself.
    Ya I'm all for that but it's a keyboard that spits of words. It's not a complicated app. I can see how some people would say they like Swype better, but to say you hated swiftkey just doesn't make sense considering it was one if not the highest rated apps of 2011 and 2012.

    One thing I have noticed is that is I don't use the Light Theme it isn't as good for me.

    Bare bones does not imply incomplete or unpolished. It implies that things are not are completely fleshed out as they could be. You don't have all the features or stock apps that could be there.

    My only problem with aosp is that it until recently lacked lots of basic ui functionally like settings in the pull down. Sense and Asus devices have had this forever. Why 4.2 is just now getting it is beyond me.

    Simple things like the home screen setup aid feature in sense 4 is also missing that could be a great addition that no market app could do without a whole new launcher.

    I also think the stock messaging app and keyboard are garbage, but that is more opinion than anything else.

    Also, it would be nice for it to have some more and better looking stock widgets, but this is probably a pipe dream...

    Much of this can be replaced by market apps, but I don't by a phone just so I can replace every stock app and launcher on it. Market stuff just never feels as polished in things like launchers and messaging apps, and I would rather not use them if I don't have to. But with aosp I feel the need to replace everything.

    Lmao.....relax. Twice you have put words in my mouth. Is this personal? Hope not, this is a fun thread. Seems you crave an explanation:rolleyes:

    We were discussing aosp to TW, Sence, Blur bla bla bla. It is assumed by most of us here that when we mention aosp we are talking about the OS. AOSP+GAPPS. The Complete OS. Give us old schoolers a little credit lol. Most everyone discussing a complete AOSP rom vs i OS is also discussing gapps. We all know they are not open source.

    You dont need to tell me what I wrote, understand, mean, or forgot. I know exactly what I have said and meant. Please leave it be.....it is annoying to say the least to go back and forth like kindergarten children "yes you did" "no you didn't" "yes you did" no you didn't." Let get back to a better discussion

    Google extends Google glass into windshields of cars for a heads up display. Apple comes up with their own and the media loves it more than Google, see on topic. LOL

    I'm determined to keep my promise that I will have a Nissan GTR. Besides that no favorites.
