    Perhaps this has long since been discovered. On my VZW S4 with Android 4.3, if you tap repeatedly on the software version panel under the About Phone menu, you get an animated jelly bean. Then, hitting the menu button bring up a screenful of floating jelly beans.

    I got the one big floating jellybean on my Note 3 with multiple taps on the Android version. It wasn't animated and I don't have the floating jellybeans when I tap on the Menu button. It's pretty cool though. Thanks!

    Sort of medium-press menu on the N3. ong press brings up Search, and tapping it isn't ling enough to bring up the animation. Don't expect zoom!, though - they move slowly.

    Likewise, tap on Build number maybe 5 times and you'll go into Developer mode - with a new item "Developer options" under System manager. :cool:

    Thanks Guys. I'm UK O2 and the long press on the Jelly Bean brings up the 'floaters'!

    If you didn't notice, you can toss the floaters around the screen by swyping them.
