    My ten year old used handcent. Isn't that for kids?

    Handcent is for everyone. Has a ton of features.

    Awesome. I'm glad the devs are working to get it resolved for us. Let us know how it works out for you, if you don't mind! In the meantime I've been using Textra, which is pretty nice, but I still want to go back to Handcent.

    Handcent sent me this upgraded app and now everything works as it did before the KitKat upgrade.

    I think this version is in the app store this morning. I am still looking for a good texting app; I am going to give this a try.

    Oh ... good that the update is in the app store. I like Handcent because of its features and customization options. It offers a bunch of skins and one of my favorite options is the delay in sending. I have mine set at five seconds in the event I am sending to the wrong person (I am sure we have all done that) or I notice a big typo. I can stop it before it goes. I also like that I can schedule texts in Handcent.

    Yeah. Mine did the same thing. I finally turned it off.

    Also, Wordament doesn't appear to work with ART...

    I did notice the Yahoo! Sports app does not work well when using ART, as opposed to Dalvik. I tested this on my Nexus 7, but I assume the same for my MAXX.

    The text message alert stopped working on my Panasonic KX-TG78xx home phone system after I upgraded to KitKat 4.4. When I look at the Bluetooth settings for that device, sometimes MAP shows and is checked, but usually MAP doesn't even show up - just the 'Connected to Phone Audio.' But, even when the MAP shows as connected, the text alert still doesn't work on the Panasonic KX-TG78. Even if I install the workaround app - 'Text Message Alert' -from Panasonic the Panasonic phone still doesn't alert. The phone audio feature thru the Panasonic still works fine, though.

    I know the Panasonic phone text alert feature works ok, because my girlfriend's iPhone 5 still text message alerts on the Panasonic.

    Also, on my car, phone audio, music over Bluetooth, and text messages displaying on the Nav screen all work ok.

    It is working for me. Nova settings. Gestures and buttons. Home button. Select "None". Turn off "Only on Default screen" below it.

    I got a good glitch. I prefer to use the Facebook website instead of the app and now you can no longer post a picture to Facebook. When you select to post a picture you are given two options:

    take a new one with your camera

    Or

    Use a document viewer which fails

    You can longer select a picture using the gallery of even photos app.

    Yes you can. Select "Documents" on the first prompt and then you will be given more options: Google Drive, Images, Downloads, Photo, Gallery, and more options depending on apps you have installed

    Received 4.4 update this morning and Fancy Widgets 5.5.5 is not working properly. Selecting the forecast on the widget opens the full weather app but now it's overlaying my default screen. Also, pressing the hour on the clock no longer opens the alarm app.

    Also having an issue with Apex Launcher Pro 2.2. Pressing the home key is supposed to bring up screen previews. It does but doesn't go back to my default screen like it did before the update.

    So far these are the only issues I've found. Have sent an email to the Dev.

    Yes, there is one bug that causes a single tap of the home key to report to the system that you have pressed home twice. It happens in all launchers. See the first post of this thread for the fix: http://forums.androidcentral.com/mot...ml#post3334911

    Thanks! I missed that. Is this a bug with Apex or KK?

    That fix doesn't work for Action Launcher (pro). I used to be able to hit home to toggle the quick drawer. Now if I hit home it only brings me back to the default home screen. Its a long reach for one handed operation to open the quick drawer!

    The static wallpaper app is not working. It says it has a fix for kit Kat but it keeps force closing when I try to set a wallpaper... Guess I need something else because I hate the background scrolling!!!!

    This this one:

    PicSpeed. It allows you to set the wallpaper in either scrolling or static. Seems to work for me in kit kat with ART.

    Try long pressing the home screen and selecting wallpaper. It should come up as an option there.

    As of 4.4 Google changed its permissions for third party battery and wake-lock detector apps to access and report information. There are two ways to fix this, one being to root the phone, and the other is to follow these steps on an unrooted phone:
