    I like the gestures which replace the navigation buttons. Shades of BB10.

    That looks cool. Can you still get split screen and the quick flip to a previous app?

    I went back to the navigation buttons until I get that sorted out.
    Edit: haven't found how to do a split screen. But the gestures are nice.

    To get to a previous app you swipe on the left or right side of screen. Center swipe means you go home. Center swipe and hold brings up your rolodex of previous apps that you haven't closed, just put in background. You can do the same with the left and right side swipe and hold.

    Looks like the gestures didn't make it into the final release?

    It is on the Beta 3 release which just came out a few days ago. It is what may be coming to the next standard update.

    I dunno if it's legit but I've seen a couple videos and articles the last couple days touting the stable release...

    One video reviewer enter that the gestures weren't in the "final" release.

    When you sign up for the beta, then you get updates with features which may or may not end up in the public OS update. The "final" release you refer to has been followed up with Beta 3 which some have chosen to be on. It often has features that are in the process of being made ready for the next public update.

    5.0.2 was released a day or two ago, but that isn't related to this beta.

    I didn't realize the beta track would carry on in parallel to the stable releases.

    Back when I did betas on the nexus 6, that path would end when the final version of whichever update hit.
