I don't know what power you have Mark, but is there any way we can request the old App menu back in the notifications bar? I find the new ('old') one just sluggish.. and bulky. I loved the quickness of pulling it down.. I tended to use it more actually.
yea but sometimes i have to use it while I'm using the phone and going from browser to lockscreen (or home) and pressing home (or finding the torch app) is a lot less intuitive than always ready access.
I'm very aware that it's available on the lock screen. But if I walk into my room.. I need to lock my phone? I don't have it locked, so I need to first lock it, in order to hold down. *and* the fact I need to HOLD it down.. as soon as I let go. I constantly slip and it turns off.. This really isn't workable, sorry.
Also pleassee the old App menu.. I detest that ugly *hold down home* App menu. Ugly as heck (Doesn't fit in with the theme at all) and I hate waiting for it.
(And on a side note.. the torch doesn't work anymore for me on hold-Home. The torch app shows, but no light. Plus the fact logic tells me that when something is *locked*, no app should be able to just takeover. It's bad logic)
Another thing. The Backlight toggle slider. By default when I restart the phone etc, the second option goes to '0'. So I'm outside.. and I tap the button.. and suddenly I can't see anything on my screen. I can't even find it to get back.. so Im walking around with my phone under my t-shirt trying to unlock the phone.. find the toggle.. move it back up, or get the brightness button. Disaster lol
Though I love the overall direction GB MIUI is going, I have to agree with the OP... the number one thing I miss from the two weeks that my Nexus one had it was that apps in the notification shade dropdown. It was sooooooo much faster, which is what I'm looking for above all with something designed for quick switching through apps. It's much faster to hit home and find the icon iphone style (pre double-click for multitasking era) than it is to actually make use of the multitasking feature as currently implemented.
Nonetheless, I love this freaking rom and look forward to this week's improvements!
