    I have not had the pleasure of experiencing the iOS 8 betas. I've heard all about what everyone likes. But what new feature do you like the least?

    I'm not sure it's just an iOS 8 feature since it started with iOS 7, but I do not like the "bottom dock" on the home screen. I think they should bring back the "floating shelf dock".....just my 02. cents.

    Yep! Actually, I'd like to see nothing at all at the bottom. What purpose does any type if visible dock serve?

    I feel the favourite contacts option in the notification settings could have been replaced with an optional widget style setup where the user can chose what they want in that section whether it be weather, Facebook etc.....

    Least favorite feature??? That it is not out of beta yet. I want to install it on my Wife and kids phones, but I wont add them to my Dev account. Plus until apps get updated I dont want them to deal with things not working.

    My wife has been running it since Beta 4 and she hasn't complained about anything not working. Trust me she complains when an app crashes alllllll the time lol.

    I put Beta 5 on my phone on Tuesday and it has been smooth sailing for me.

    I like all the new features in iOS 8 but I would have liked to see a few more:

    - Ability to change the bottom dock, I hate the iOS 7/8 one.
    - Ability to easily theme icons without jailbreaking. If I could do this I would't have a reason to JB anymore.
    - Add colors to different email accounts to easily discern them when viewing the unified inbox.

    Least favourite? Darn, I can't think of anything that I dislike enough to be at the bottom of my list. I can certainly talk up some of the new features though.

    I don't love the fact that the photo stream folder is gone. I liked having that.

    Wait I just thought of something. The Recently deleted folder in the pictures. Makes no sense to me. Deleting something twice is so counter-intuitive IMO

    I haven't seen the photo stream feature working yet anyway. I am running the beta on my phone and pics I take show up on ipad photo stream but pics I take with ipad do not show up on phone.

    Def don't like the photo stream folder being gone. Apparently your stream is mixed in recently added.
    At first I did like the most recent contacts by double clicking the home button but I can see people not liking it as a privacy issues. Anyone can see who you've recently communicated with. Should be an option to turn this off

    How does iOS 8 run on older iPhones ?

    My least two favorite features:

    1. Interactive notifications...well at least for mail. In iOS 7 I am able to be in a game, other app...whatever and get a mail notification. I would swipe down and read it, swipe it back up and go back to my game or whatever app I am in. In iOS 8, I can get that same notification and the only options I get are mark as read or delete. I can't read the notification without going into mail. What a waste.

    2. The need to have message preview turned on to use quick reply. I keep my message preview disabled for a reason. Defeats the purpose of leaving the message preview disabled. Maybe if they would build an option to leave it disabled but when you use quick reply, then you can see it.

    How can you "quick reply" if you don't see the message preview?

    iOS 8 has not been released to the general public yet. Probably September 17th or so. Some already have it in beta. That's like for developers. The phones that will get iOS 8 are the 4s, 5, 5c, 5s and the new iPhone 6 when it is released in September. The iPhone 4 and below will not get iOS 8.
