    I think Apple did a great job with the update. They added more features... Because they listened to what users want... So in the end everyone wins .

    iOS 8 beta is definitely best avoided for now IMHO. There are just too many bugs which crash my iPhone 5 for me to recommend it. A few examples:
    1) who would have thought that pressing the Settings button would crash the app (after switching on the phone from off)
    2) Battery life is shocking too even with just a single app running. I've followed all the recommendations that are supposed to help but no joy just yet.
    3) Unless you are a developer then there is no support
    4) If you try and select multiple mails, to move them to a specific folder, the select button disappears once you scroll down so you have no idea of what you have selected.
    5) If a purchased app stops working after installing iOS 8, there is little or no support from the app developer.

    Obviously these are just the first 5 that popped into my head but I'm sure I could list more!
    I'm tempted to roll back to iOS 7 for now and upgrade when it's a little more stable. It's such a shame that there are too many issues right now but once the fixes are in place it will be fab. Please, PLEASE Apple, address the battery life issue first... Or maybe start sorting out the crashes first...

    Those issues are why you should not install a beta on your primary device. Do I violate that? Yes. But I also don't complain about apps not working and no support. It's par for the course and expected especially with a first beta.

    It is an incomplete operating system....of course it will have bugs.....that is the point! Developers file bug reports to help Apple get rid of the bugs. I think it is great they release beta so we can start taking advantage of new features and start developing apps before its release. All your complaints are listed in Apples warning...and if you have downloaded previous betas....the battery life is always shorter in beta versions.
    You are stating the obvious. I dont understand your complaint...it really doesnt make any sense. You might as well complain about the sky being blue.

    I lost my cool emoticons with beta 2 update.

    I push the smiley face on the keyboard for all the extras....freezes iMessage, every time...have to force close to 'unstick' it.

    Restored back to beta 1 this morning. Ill take the occasional sideways keyboard and blinking, stuttering reminders of beta 1.
    ....over the headphone jack stops working, touch smiley face for emoticons, or try and use mic for voice recognition and it freezes iMessage every time so you have to force close, power button doesnt work...hard reset....several times to get it right, camera kills phone of beta 2 any day of the week.

    Get it together SnApple.

    It looks like what iOS 7 should've been. Sadly, It's not enough to sway me from trading my iPhone 4 for the Note 4 in December.
