That's what I was reading from the Galaxy Note 3 update as well.

How's battery life and overall stability?

I have downloaded the new Kitkat software without any problems. I am having some trouble with the KitKat Experience Multi Launcher app. The application does not recognize my network connection and is unable to validate the license. Has anyone else come across this problem?

Has anyone installed a new app and tried moving to the sd card? Or using a photo editor and saving the picture to the sd card?

Make sure you're using the latest version of Kies.
Can't update over the air?
