    What's in 2.1 - Findings, Tips and Tricks

    I have looked around and have not yet found a comprehensive listing of the items fixed or added to the 2.1 release other than the small list posted on the site so I thought we should start one.

    If you find something that has changed from 2.01 to 2.1 - big or small - list it here so we can keep us all up to date with discoveries made by our forum participants!

    Goggles is built in
    Support for Google Earth -- huge download though
    Voice input by default on soft keyboard -- took the place of the "," key
    Seems faster

    You may have looked around, but you didn't look in the right spots.

    I decided to reopen this thread based on a PM I got from the OP. I am opening it however with conditions.

    It has to stay on topic. If we start getting a lot of off topic comments I will close the thread again. Post your findings only. No talk about whether it's real or gripping about 3 screens. We've seen that already.

    I have noticed the the notification bar works a little differently. When I am updating more than one app at a time the "Downloading (Apps)" is just one one "line" in Notifications the downloading apps seperated by commas. As each one is downloaded they drop one at a time lower down on seperate "lines". Maybe it was that way before, but I certainly thought there was a seperate "downloading line" for each app,

    Also I seem to have 2 extra very small (8k,16k) "downloaded apps" in "Menu>Applications>Manange Applications" that are weird. (and yes it is filtered for "downloaded apps" only)

    One seems to reference the Gallery app, but I know I uninstalled the 2.1 Gallery BEFORE I did the 2.1 update. The app name is "com.android.gallery" size is only 8.00kb, "Version 0" and does have an uninstall button (yes, it's highlighted)

    The other one right below it is "com.android.inputmethod.latin.." size is only 16.00kb (12 app/4 data) and it is also "Version 0", and also has an uninstall button.

    Anyone else have this??

    ! Just found another....

    in 2.0.1 the text character counter would only show up in Portrait mode texting

    now in landscape the character counter is also present, used to when I used this I would never get the counter and thus send chopped up texts to friends....

    (rant)
    Verizon and their multi text limitations to other carriers (otherwise this bug fix wouldn't be important..lol)

    Another thing people have found is that the led will only go on when you get a notification while the phone is turned off (not powered off). If you are actively using the phone the light will not come on.
