iOS 8 - No complaints so far.

I upgraded OTA, no backup, for my 'Phone, Gen 3 and miniR 'Pads.

The only oddity was larger text when I opened the 'Phone (5s). Found the text slider (much more convenient location/access) and all is right once again.

I had adjusted the Dynamic Font to make some text larger, and it may be that iOS8 made that system wide instead of just a few places in the iOS.

The quick access to Recent Contacts by double-tapping the Home button is really nice. I'll be using this a lot.

I also like the new Swipe to the left to delete an email. It's much more convenient than the Swipe-Tap.

The Grayscale mode is sort of a Night mode for me. Not really quick to get to, and not like the Dark mode in Yosemite, but nice for night time use.

So far, I'm pretty happy, and I haven't even scratched the surface of iOS 8.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

The Invert Colors effect is pretty cool.

In some screens, it's a great Night Mode.

Francis!

Invert Colors + Grayscale!

Reminds me of B&W IR.

I love the transparent icons with just the palest of outlining. Sort of makes each app indistinguishable from all the rest.

Huh.

I'm not having that problem.

Much more legible than iOS 7 with deeper contrasting edges to the icons and text.

It's what iOS7 should have been if Apple hadn't decided to release iOS 7 half-baked.
