    Aside from the new camera features, has anyone noticed any other changes to the HTC apps?

    I've only downloaded it about 30 minutes ago and I can't see anything different apart from the camera. I was randomly forced to download Skype and my Google Drive account received a bump up to 100gb in size (which it was already at) the phone still feels just as fast and smooth so no complaints here

    Most of the changes are to the firmware.

    The camera is the only one you'll see

    I just checked and it's on mine on 4.4.3, but you have to press the volume rocker then the settings button to bring up the link option. Are you saying it's the same on 4.4.4, or the check box shows on the basic volume pop-up without going to settings?

    I noticed the Network Mode under Mobile Network Settings has been re-labelled just as 2G / 3G / 4G rather than the techy names they used before that many people probably don't understand.

    The magnetometer appears to be fixed, so the compass app points the right direction now.
    Bluetooth can see my headset now. Under 4.4.3, all it could see was laptops.

    I thought that I hadn't seen that file manager before plus flashlight means I can uninstall the flashlight app I had installed 😁

    Yeah it's nice to have a nice flashlight app that's isn't cheap looking or full of ads lol.

    The file manager was definitely in the update before this one though. It's the number one thing people were looking forward to in 4.4.3 because of the sd card restrictions.

    The file manager and flashlight were not on the Verizon version running 4.4.3

    I concur. Flashlight and File manager are new for Verizon with 4.4.4.

    Well I'll be damned. That's sucks. This is an especially needed update for Verizon customers then. Bet you're very happy :-)

    For the file manager yes, the flashlight is nice, but time will tell if I actually use it or not

    Verizon really surprised me this time. Not just for the file manager, but how quick this update was released too. I figured this would have taken until Christmas for us to get 4.4.4.

    I can already tell I'm not going to use the flashlight. The one I already installed had a widget I could use (handy on the lock screen), but the stock one doesn't. I use it fairly often, so the widget is actually the deciding factor for me.

    Can you share what flashlight app you have that works on the lock screen?

    Thanks,

    I'm using a prior version of this app

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...uni.flashlight

    I refuse to update because it used to have all features in one app. The developer decided to split it so you have to additionally download additional "modules" to get any features beyond the basic light. Not sure if that affected the lock screen widget ability or not. The developer said the reason for splitting it was to save space for people with lower end devices that don't have much storage and can download only the parts they want.

    OMG. Im a verizon M8 owner. The file manager works for SD storage as well? This just made me REALLY excited.

    Agree on hastiness of the update, it makes me feel a LOT better about the possibility of getting android Lollipop in a timely fashion.

    It does. The only thing I'm not seeing is the ability to show hidden folders that have a period in the front of the folder name. I looked, but doesn't appear to be a setting to toggle showing hidden folders in the manager.
