    I've got it on my iPhone 5 (since the first beta) and while it does have bugs it's certainly been stable enough overall for me. Really loving the new camera/photos features.

    I'm using it on my 5s and just wondered what issues people were having with the beta software? I think beta 4 is quite stable apart from a few crashes here and there!

    It's being used as a daily driver on my iPhone 5. In fact, I used beta 3 as my daily driver also, and thankfully, iOS 8 beta 4 is even more stable on my device...

    Used all except beta 3 as daily driver. Beta 4 has been pretty stable on my 5S.

    Beta 3 was pretty buggy IMO, however like I said beta 4 does seem to be a lot better. Apparently beta 5 is out on Monday I wonder what that will be like

    I have it on my daily driver. I have the 5s. It's pretty stable. Sometimes it freezes in imessage for a few seconds but nothing that isn't manageable. Pros outweigh the cons

    I'm considering putting it on my original iPad Mini, now that the Air is my primary device.

    I did for the past month or so. The battery life just wasn't up to par. I'm back on Jailbroken iOS 7.1.2.

    I have it on my iPhone 5s and one of my Ipad Minis.

    I have been using iOS betas on my daily driver since iPhone OS 3.0 beta 1, it added copy and paste . That was a really long time ago.

    Or the apps.
    I noticed certain apps draining the battery due to a location services working in the background.

    I do. Started only on my Phone and then when beta4 was released decided it felt reliable enough to also install it on iPad. Now iOS8 is running on all my devices and it feels great, I very rarely feel like I'm on a beta.

    ScoreCenter crashes almost as soon as I open the app.

    theScore app works well with the exception of clicking on baseball scores. It crashes afterwards. Both are minor in the larger scheme of things and will be fixed by the time Football season really kicks into gear....At least I'm hoping...

    Not so sure.. Just speculation at this point on beta releases. Nothing official.

    But I can sense the anticipation in our post

    I've been on my daily driver since beta 1 was released & for me the worse beta was 2. Beta 4 has been great with the exception of Living Earth crashing but that's the nature of the beast...at least the temperature badge is accurate. I also have no complaints about battery life. It's been very good!
