    JellyBean

    I have had ICS for a couple of weeks. Updated to JB last night and really noticed the increase in speed. But what else? What makes JB better then ICS? What other differences should I notice?

    One this I have noticed on my phone with ICS is that if I sroll to the right or left it will go into a continuous loop. Very nice. My Xoom in ICS and JB stops at the last screen and you have to go back. Any way to change this?

    Thanks for any advice on getting the most our of Jelly Bean!

    Its mostly "Project Butter". A smoother experience with small UI tweaks. Notifications are now expandable, developer options were beefed up and of course Google Now. Google now is available from the lockscreen, by longpressing the home button or swiping up from home button and the google search icon in app drawer or top home screen search bar.

    It improved on ICS and is how ICS should have been launched imo.

    Cant change home screen looping stock. Must download a different launcher like Nova or Apex.

    Haven't had any updates in a bit but it worked on ICS and JB. I only use one screen with a sliding dock and only use one screen so when I wipe I'm back up and running in just as long as it takes Titanium to repopulate my apps.

    Just checking out JB, only to discover most of my playlists in Google Play have been emptied. Little bit of a pain, but, thought worth mentioning.
