Finally the circle is complete! I installed the 8.1 developer preview to my HTC 8x and tried it for a few days before posting this. I can now upload images from IE! Here are more of my favorite new features of Windows 8.1
IE 11 reading mode
Cortana is gloriously simple
Awesome Start Screen Tile Backgrounds
Of course, since this is just the Developer Preview, this is not yet final. Therefore, there are still A LOT of stuff that needs to be fixed and polished.
Here's a list I noticed most:
- DECREASED BATTERY LIFE - I really hate it!
- Xbox Music App needs to be fixed: from the interface to its functionality. It works, but it's butt-ugly. It's slow and lacks functionality.
- Now playing artist pic doesn't show up anymore on lock screen :(
- I didn't mind other user's complaints like the deintegration of social apps and putting the list of your games to your main apps list.
MY FINAL WORDS:
don't try it... yet!
