    I'm finding the Air View in the Calendar very helpful - many days I have too many appts and I can't see them all in Month view. Hover over the date and BAM! See all my appts.

    I also really like the additional app access in the multi-window tray, and the ease of moving, resizing and switching windows around.

    The JB update on my Galaxy S3 phone was meh, but on the Note, it's great!!

    Here's a repost of the link to the YouTube vid explaining & showcasing some of the new features. (Thanks to whoever posted it first - very helpful!)

    I like the swipe feature on the keyboard. I can enter information really fast, and it does a good job of recognizing what I want to say. On Raytan's post, I want to add that you do not receive updates on the apps that you do this to. There's another app on XDA also that makes all your apps multi-window if you are rooted.

    The ability to scroll / zoom while entering text using handwriting in S-Note. That was a pain before, having to close the text entry to see the full page, then reopening text entry.

    It does work. There is an option somewhere to enable it. Search the forum as I do not remember where it is, but it has been mentioned here.

    Thanks, got it working again. The s pen settings menu is kind of confusing, it looks as though the toggle is the only option.

    We finally got back the ability to close browser using the return button. The persistent about:blank page was really annoying.

    I like how slow the recent tab reacts to you pressing it. I have the n8013 and it takes a good 4 to 5 seconds for it to react. :(
