    Just FYI to all of my Maxx friends here: I still have three invitation codes for the Aviate launcher left. If anybody wants one, just PM me with your email address and I will send out an invite (to the first three, obviously).

    Just a word of caution: the home key bug on KitKat makes Aviate a bit of a pain in the neck on the Maxx at the moment. The home button press on Aviate is a toggle and so each time you press the key it toggles one way then immediately the other. Hopefully Moto is working on a fix for this (they did seem to fix the Google Now launch problem when you pressed just above the capacitive keys that started with the 12.15.15 OTA update in November.)

    Not so sure that the return to home "thang" is not considered a "feature"...

    It doesn't happen on the Moto X when you hit the home soft-key, and is not standard Android behavior. I am sure it is a bug. If it still exists after our next OTA, whenever that happens, then I guess we'll know it was intentional, for some dumb reason.

    Got my invite this morning and I'm checking it out. Boy is it weird. Definitely different from anything else out there.

    Edit: I have some beta invites. PM me your email address and I'll hook you up. I'll update this post when they're gone.

    I just sent my last invite out. Hopefully those five are generous and keep the ball rolling here to anyone that might be interested in checking this out.

    I don't know if it matters anymore, but Life Hacker is giving away invites. Just go to Google Play Store and download the app. The code is LIFEHACKAV. With it you will get 5 invites. All they ask is, once you have done so, visit their site and join their discussions with your feedback.
