    If so, what for? Or do you just have it disabled because you're scared it will drain your battery too quickly.

    Google Now is awesome. It tells me traffic for my commute, gives me quick access to package tracking and helps busy me follow my sports teams. It also allows me to not have a weather widget, schedules appointments for me, and a slew of other useful things.
    Play around with it for awhile and you'll find it quite useful.

    I love Google now and use it for everything. I just wish there was an easier way to access it on this phone.

    I use it for weather and sometimes search.

    I mainly love it for when I am driving I can tell it who to call so I don't have to look down.

    I try to make it a point to open it at least once a day but like mentioned above, it would be nice if it were somehow more prominent or quicker to access - like a widget, maybe?

    I want to use it, except for 3 things:
    1 - increased data usage
    2 - battery drain
    3 - slows my phone down

    That said, I do use it for search

    So far I haven't found it all that useful. I'm sure for some people it is, and if my usage patterns change, it might be more useful for me. I'm not particularly worried about data (Sprint) or battery drain, and I don't notice any real performance hit when it's turned on.

    I ordered a couple things on Ebay a few days ago. I opened up Google now today, and tracking info for those items were waiting for me.
    Another easter egg

    Yesserie bob I use it. It's an amazing piece of software that has a lot of potential. Honestly, I haven't had too much of battery drain. Maybe 1% an hour...if that.

    Frozen with titanium backup. It gets in my way. The only items I want in my notification dropdown is my email, text and and things like that.

    I live in a fairly small community and can get to anywhere in the community from my house in 20 minutes regardless of traffic. I don't need and don't like garbage such as you are 10 minutes from home cluttering up my dropdown.

    Just found out with Now open I can say "google, note," and then speak whatever note I was going to send myself and it sends it to my GMail. Quick way to send myself reminders.

    I used to be able to just say "Listen to ......." and my ICS phone would open spotify (you can chose any installed music app as default), and start that song, or author, but not anymore. This needs to be added back.

    I have Nova also. You can swipe up the first time but if you are in Google already, how do you initiate an action? You have to tap on the mic, right?

    PRETTY sure you still can do this. Just say "listen to..." and it should open it in Google Music. Not 100% certain though.

    Every attempt I've made to use Now for this just takes me to a search page for the song name / band name / Pandora.
