    Jelly Bean Update Broke Some Stuff

    Well, I was excited when I saw that JB was ready for a download, so I dove in. Most of the improvements were cosmetic and nice, but several things broke, one or them has me angry.

    Speed dial no longer exists apparently. All of my one-button dialing settings are gone and I see no option to add any, nor any replacement functionality. That alone makes me wish I had not upgraded.

    Also, Draw Something does not work at all, but I hope an update will remedy that soon enough. Finally, the Weight Watchers app does not scroll, but that's easy to overlook.

    Anyone know how to roll back to 4.0.4? I am seriously considering that for the sped dial functionality.

    Why not use the favorite contacts widget? That will take care of your speed dialing.

    Re: Jelly Bean Update Broke Some Stuff

    Okay, I setup the Favorites widget as recommended. It takes 3 clicks minimum to dial someone and I have to look at the screen at least twice. If I have more than one screen full of Favorites, more.

    With Speed Dialing, I opened the Phone app and long-pressed a number and it dialed. It was very convenient for up to 8 quick-dialed numbers. One more click might not seem like a lot but that 33% minimum increase in complexity takes the 'speed' right out of it.

    Still not happy, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Ok found your solution "Go contacts ex" I used it back when I hand my droid 2 global.
    Made by the same people that made go launcher, but you don't have to install go launcher.

    Once you download it, you also get "go dialer" remove the old dialer icon and add go dialer, open go dialer long press on the number you want to setup and your golden.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the suggestions. The Contacts widgets (there are two of them) take up too much screen real estate for my tastes.

    Go Contacts EX looks like the best alternative as a replacement for the functionality that was (in my opinion) unnecessarily removed with the JB upgrade. Thank you very much for that recommendation!

    You can make a folder with the contacts... That way it only takes up one spot...

    Just updated myself to JB a few hours ago and now my mic button is missing from the keyboard. It used to be just left of the space bar but now it's gone. Under "Language & Input/Keyboard & Input Methods/Android Keyboard Settings" the voice input key is checked to show up "on main keyboard". But it does not.

    I've searched and searched and can't figure out how to fix it.

    It's still there on my swype keyboard, to the right of the space bar.
