Finally updated the Moto X 2014 to lollipop. I'm a little surprised Caller ID by Google is missing. It's the only lollipop feature that I really care about. cc +Motorola Mobility​

+Corvida Raven yes you are right about the GPE devices. This caller ID feature is not yet open sourced by Google, that's why other manufacturers can't implement it in thr ROM. As you know nexus and GPE updates are handled by Google directly, hence they have caller ID feature.

Been using Omni Notes for some months now and I'm enjoying the material design in the betas. One thing I hope to see improved in the material design is the coloring of notes. I'm not opposed to the coloring when looking at my list of notes, but all that color is highly irritating to look at when typing up a note. A solid white background is easier on my eyes.

Second, I'd love to have the option to pin notes (especially notes with a checklist) as a notification.

+Corvida Raven​ have you tried to completely restart the app? For example by exciting it with back-button and then removing it from recent apps

Does the issue appears again even after this?

Difference between buying Nexus/GPE, carrier branded, and devices heavily supported by the Android developer community:
+Nexus​ 6 on Lollipop (5.0.1)
+AT&T+HTC​ One (M7/GPE conversion) on Lollipop (5.0.1)
AT&T +Motorola Mobility​ X2 on 😒 Kit Kat (4.4.4)

Delays aside, Lollipop came in faster than I expected for the HTC One (M7 & M8). I was hoping the Moto X or X2 would get it first, but this works too.

I pray for the families of Eric Garner and Ramsey Orta. I don't know how anyone can find peace in having killers walk around with authority and power while the real ones are constantly gunned down and jailed.

So Ramsey Orta, interviewed in this article, has been arrested for gun possession and in currently in a psychiatric hospital pending evaluation....

Update: Apparently this is a Nexus/GPE feature only. 😕😒 Well, it SHOULD be an ANDROID feature.

+Abel Alex my location was on. There are no settings for Google Caller ID on the Moto X 2014.

+Susil Kumar Garanaik This is the 2nd Gen Moto X (2014) +Artem Antipov Was right.

+P Maddux Thanks for sharing! Will take a look at this over the weekend and give it a try.

+Jeff Chapman As long as rooting your phone is not a concern, this is a solid purchase. Everything has improved quite a bit since the 1st Moto X and the lollipop update hasn't been so bad either.

At last, my love has come along! Xposed for Lollipop is finally out.

#android #xposed #lollipop
The wait is over! Xposed for Lollipop has overcome the ART modifications and is back with a vengeance to bring you amazing functionality modules once again!

Richer Quick Settings

I archive things to read them later. This is one of them. Here is another example of Google quietly leaking features into the OS without you knowing unless you read Android police posts. The only Richer quick toggles activated right now is the mobile data one is active at the moment. Eventually all the quick settings toggles will work the same way as the mobile data one. Tap to expand. This is why i say dont judge the OS by the launch date. Many things will be unveiled as time goes by.
