    Yep, that's the one. Love the nitetime color scheme (not to mention all the other "goodies"), and yes....lots of shortcuts! Don't recall seeing a "keep screen on" option, but whatever app I'm in, the screen stays on until I exit out (in the vehicle dock as well). Is that what you were asking?

    Odd question, but on gingerbread it showed the day of the week when you pulled down in the notification bar, along with the date. Now it just shows the date. Is there a way to change this?

    Figured this would be a good place for this question since it would be a good tip.

    Does anyone know how to link ringtones and notifications in ICS? It drives me nuts that I have to go in and change it manually now. I've read a lot of posts on how to unlink in earlier versions of ICS but no way to link them. It used to be in the volume setting.

    I tried it in the car and all screens stay on. There is an option to turn that off though to save battery. Also, pressing the home button doesn't make it do anything. It doesn't open a screen of the app and it doesn't open the home page which is good. And the media controls are really nice to have back.

    Not sure if it actually works but try this: go into settings: scroll down to "developer options", scroll down to "APPS" section and the first one listed there with the ability to place a check mark is "destroy every activity as soon as the user leaves it." Below that is "background process limit" which I have left at the default standard limit. More research by others may show whether these actually help at all. :biggrin:

    I use "power controls" from the market. It's free and there are NO ADDS!!!! It resides in the notification bar and you can change up to 8 different icons on it. It will do what you want plus it has a good flashlight icon. :icon_ banana:

    I'm not sure if this was availabile or not but, while typing in the word suggestion/spelling correction area if you long press the blue suggested word it brings up a plethora of suggestions. I think they are all similarly spelled words. I've never noticed this on GB. It is pressing on the blue recommended word not the red underlined misspelled word. Just something I learned.

    Does anyone know how to re-order your favorites? In the phone select "favorites" and they show up six photos to a screen. By default they are in alphabetical order. I would like to change the order.

    How to kill Download auto-shortcuts?

    I download an app and it automatically places a shortcut on a home screen. I don't want that; I want to go through my downloads at my leisure and decide whether I want shortcuts or not. I do a power downloading session (especially from google play on my pc), go to my phone and I've got shortcuts everywhere! :disappointed: I HAVE CONTROL ISSUES! LOL

    Hell hath no fury like a woman with control issues LOL :p

    I find that rather annoying too. I use "Desktop Visualizer" to make custom icons and shortcuts. You can even edit the names of the icons and shortcuts. :)

    Open the "Play Store" on your phone. Tap the "Menu" button, then "Settings" and uncheck the "Auto-Add to Home Screen" box ... problem solved. :icon_ banana:
