4.2.2 No Visual Icon Feedback

My Tab 2 7.0 updated to 4.2.2 last night and something I've noticed today is there is no visual feedback when you touch an app icon. I can't honestly remember what it did before I updated, but I I know it gave me some sort of visual cue that I had touched the icon.

For some reason this is really bothering me, I feel like I don't know if I've actually touched the icon or not without waiting for a second to see if the app launches.

Anyone else experience this and know of a way to fix it?

I have the same result. No fisual feedback when touching any icons. No little glow or animation or anything. It's so strange they'd remove that.

There is just something about a visual cue that you have touched the icon that makes the interface feel more responsive. Without that, it suddenly feels sluggish. I dug around in the developer options looking for a way to fix this, but couldn't find anything. There are some things about 4.2.2 I like (being able to move apps to the SD card is a nice one) but this icon thing just really bugs me.

I agree. It's not sluggish for me as much as "did my touch register?" This is the first time I've ever seen this. Maybe launchers rectify this?

I got Nova (paid for Nova Prime) and it solved this issue. Plus I really like the look of Nova combined with the Goolors icon set.

I use Nova Launcher as well. I like it. It is pretty close to the stock launcher, but more customizable.

I upgraded to 4.2.2 and still have the little dot wherever I touch the screen. It is there on icons or any other part of the screen!

Is this discussion about something else?

I know in setup under developers there is a place for a check mark to leave a visual mark where you touch it, or add trails when you drag your finger.

Not the dot, but like a little glow around an app icon when you touch it. With the 4.2.2 update, there is no indication that you've touched one.
