    Having quite an issue with my Twitter apps. I updated yesterday evening, and am finally getting around to playing with it. Everything seems to be working fine and smooth. But both of my Twitter apps refuse to update my feed. I use the Twitter app (mainly just for notifications) and Plume (mainly for viewing my feed). Done a restart a few times, reinstalled the apps, but they still won't update. Notifications are coming through though...
    Well I figured it out. Apparently my twitter app logged me out and was trying to log me in with my gmail account tied to the phone, which is not the email I used to sign up with twitter. All is good now. Well, except for that annoying wifi connected notification.

    And sadly I don't think there's a way to fix that. Good, so far it seems like no crippling issues.

    I updated last night and haven't had any issues other than my FoxFi hotspot won't connect any more. I have tried all the usual workarounds but have had no success. Has anyone been able to get their hotspot going through FoxFi, or will I have to wait for the app to update?

    Some observations:

    • Smart Lock is awesome! I love not having to put in my PIN when the phone is connected to my Pebble Steel.
    • Because this is still Sense 6, there is a pretty clear disconnect between the design of the Sense stuff (which was clearly designed with KitKat in mind) and the OS itself. This will be remedied with Sense 7 though.
    • The grid-style multitasking does something wonky with the status bar in non-HTC apps. Try it. Go to the grid, wait for the status bar to disappear, then go to a non-HTC app like Chrome. The screen has to readjust for the status bar. Very annoying. I prefer the grid, but that annoys me to the point of using the cards instead. And the cards are sometimes a bit slow to launch. (This also looks like it'll be remedied with Sense 7.)
    • Since Sense 5, HTC has never been big on fancy animations. But they still threw in some nice, subtle animations here and there that makes the experience seem a little more lively.

    I was wondering about FoxFi, I figured it would break it.

    That sucks. Try doing a system cache wipe first and if that doesn't work, you may need to do a factory reset. Make sure you back up your photos and what not.

    I did the update to Lollipop and my FoxFi is now broken (at least in WiFi mode). All else seems fine. I did not do any wiping.

    Watch out with those new notifications on the homescreen. I am not used to having my Hangouts messages show up on the front screen. I had a buddy of mine send an extremely vulgar message to my phone and sure enough, it showed up on the lock screen. I miss my old iPhone 4 notifications, so I do not plan to turn them off, but I will have to pay attention when I am in court.
    FYI if weren't already aware - you can change to 'Hide sensitive notification content' mode under Settings -> Sound & Notification, but it is global so all apps will have hidden content.

    Update done here... No issues... I did cache wipe before and then did it after even though it seemed to be fine.

    I wish sense 7 was part of this... Overall there is not much to this update... I remember hearing how battery was supposed to improve, etc... I hope this is all a step forward...

    Edit: And no voLTE! Grrrrrrrrr......

    No issues with update. I generally do a factory reset after a major update and did it this time too. So far I like it, but I'm also noticing the battery draining a little quicker, but I'll give it a few days to settle in before I get too excited. Like the new notifications.

    My standard Twitter app is working normally after the Lollipop update.

    Can you hook your phone up to your computer? That's how my phone backs up if I do a factory wipe. HTC has that program (I don't recall the name, that installs when you plug your phone into the computer).

    How come you can't access things on your phone? What is happening with your phone after the update?

    Yeah, but here is the kicker. If you click hide the content option, it only works when the phone is "locked." If I have used my phone within the past 5 minutes, it will show the contents of the message no matter what. However, if the phone has not been used for 5 minutes, it will indicate that the content is hidden.

    Love the update in general! Did not need or do anything of the steps some people feel they need to (Factory wipe or multiple wipes / Cache wipe). Honestly seen about a 20 percent improve in battery life today doing same things I do every day since day the phone was released. Also agree things will run even better and look better once we get updated version of Sense on here.

    My biggest complaints so far are apps taking forever to install every time there is an update (facebook took 4 minutes to install) and the freakin WiFi notification even though it's turned off it shows up as a lock screen notification all the time..... Yes, I did a factory reset after install.

    Found another "issue" tonight. I use my phone with a 3.5mm aux cord to listen to music in my car. Previously, if I got a notification, the music volume would lower and the notification would play through the headphone port, so I would hear it in my car or headphones. Now, it doesn't play at all. Not even through the phone speakers. I was on a 2 hour drive and didn't realize all the texts I got because I couldn't hear anything.

    I've gone a full day with the lollipop update and have not run into any issues. Battery life improved and I like the new notification layout. I did not factory reset nor clear out any cache. Minimal update overall but again I seem to be getting improved battery life.

    Rebooted to recovery and wiped the cache. Foxfi is still broken. Any recommendation for an alternative?

    Mine started doing that a few weeks ago without doing any updates with the system. Not sure why, but sometimes it would and mostly wouldn't.

    I also finally took the update without resetting now. Some people reported Facebook messenger not working right, but I am still on an older version of the app. I said I'd report back to see if the older version works ok and I'm here to say I'm having problems. If I type in a friend's name, they don't show up in results. It'll show results under "friends of friends" or other random people, but there's no direct friends list results. I tried updating the app and no change. Otherwise it seems to be working ok for now.

    As far as an alternative to FoxFi, I have always been able to connect through PDA Net by tethering to my computer, and the PDA Net application on the computer side will set up a wireless hotspot.

    After a few days running Lollipop on the HTC One M8, I am comfortable enough to say that my battery life has worsened--not significantly, but enough for me to personally notice.

    Usually, on a light usage day, I will make it to about 10:00 p.m. with 55-65% of the battery left (16 hours off charger). I was at 35% yesterday by 11:00 p.m. I did have mixed usage (some bouts of texting that lasted a half hour or so), but then the phone would not be touched for hours at a time.

    Overall, I would say that my battery life has not improved with the Lollipop update. However, it is not bad enough for me to pitch a fit about it because the phone is running perfectly.

    I am a huge fan of Lollipop at this point. I would pick up an HTC One M9 based on how much I am enjoying Lollipop on my M8, but I am going to buy a new Beretta instead. Guns last a lot longer than my cell phones.
