Hello,

On the latest Action Launcher 3 Beta (3.13.0-beta5) widgets do not seem to update automatically anymore.

I cannot find where the bug is coming from (Action Launcher or Beautiful Widgets), so I reported the bug to Action Launcher's developer.

I'll report the bug to Beautiful Widgets' developers too.

In addition to previous reports of app icons being "stuck" after picked up from the app drawer, here is a video of it:

The battery percentage is not shown alongside the battery icon in the quick-settings panel, as it does on AOSP.
It results in the incapacity to know the percentage when it is bellow 5%.

For reference I added a picture from my Nexus 7 (left)

Hello there,

The Marshmallow Concept has been very pleasant so far, but lately, after I install the last update (the one removing FM radio) I noticed an important RAM usage.

After a few hours of uptime, I notice that the activities aren't kept in background –whenever I switch to an app and back again it reloads the entire app and has lost its state– and when I look to the Memory settings I see that the memory is always almost full...

Am I the only one impacted by this?

No, Windows 10 running Android & iOS apps is NOT huge news
It barely matters beyond MS' marketing message. Here's why.

Anyone remember BB OS? They enabled Android apps trying to save their OS from death. What happened? The runtime was badly implemented hack. Not only did it not have all the services needed to run average Android apps but it was always lagging behind the Android platform releases which limited any devs to very old versions of the Android platform not allowing them to build interesting, modern apps to the platform.

Making your Android app run on Win10 will not be simply dropping the APK to their store. Firstly, you’ll have to deal with the lack of Google Play Services. You might already be doing that if you distribute your apps in the Amazon store so that might not be a blocker. But even beyond that you will immediately duplicate your QA efforts required for each release. You will also keep maintaining a separate branch for the Windows platform. It’s going to be A LOT of extra work. If I had to guess you’d be better off just building native from effort (and budget) point of view.

Then there’s the big issue. Cross-platform apps SUCK. Each platform has their own UI and UI patterns. Users learn to use (possibly unintuitive) UI controls through platform consistency. What MS is now doing is the destruction of their platform consistency. Firing up an Android app on your Windows device is like getting slap to the face. All new visual, controls, control flows, everything. You don’t want to do this to your customers!

This is a desperate marketing move by MS. They’re trying to get the non-tech crowd to think that this is a good idea (just look what the verge headline is.. ugh..). They will also, no doubt, pour money to devs willing to put time on putting their apps to the store. The result will be that soon there’s tons of partially working apps that will never get updated in their store and they can claim victory. 

MS is not the first one to try this and probably won’t be the last. The idea just is fundamentally flawed and will not work no matter how much muscle there’s behind it. 

If you want to be on Windows platform but don’t care about learning their platform devving go through the browser. Web is not dead. Build mobile web but keep it in the browser.

Si tout comme moi vous n'appréciez pas les régressions de Google Agenda sur Android, Google fait un sondage :
Google wants to know what you think of Calendar
Google is requesting feedback on the new Google Calendar app via this survey. 

I complained about the 5-day week view on phones (down from 7), the removal of pinch zoom, the poor scrolling on the agenda view, and the lack of a phone month view that looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/yXWsHcQ.jpg.

That's just me though. Maybe you could let them know what you think, too. =P
