    That's what I was reading from the Galaxy Note 3 update as well.

    How's battery life and overall stability?

    I have downloaded the new Kitkat software without any problems. I am having some trouble with the KitKat Experience Multi Launcher app. The application does not recognize my network connection and is unable to validate the license. Has anyone else come across this problem?

    Has anyone installed a new app and tried moving to the sd card? Or using a photo editor and saving the picture to the sd card?

    Make sure you're using the latest version of Kies.
    Can't update over the air?

    Downloaded OTA, update installed took 75 minutes. The camera icon is handy, opens with a swipe upward. White icons as stated, Some apps were missing after update and needed to re-download. I found Air view didn't work well in JB, Samsung support said it would with new update, this is false. It works hit or miss just as before. Seems a little smoother.

    The camera shortcut should be there.
    No to the GN Launcher, and yes to the hide app option

    Using the latest Kies 3. Can't get OTA because device status is custom even though I've tried rooting and unrooting and removing root files. I did use Kies to update to 4.3 so idk what's up.
