    JellyBean Tips and Tricks

    Now that JellyBean is officially rolling out, I decided to pull some tidbits from around the interwebz that I have run across to help users get up to speed with Android 4.1. Some of this is ICS related, but not everyone is up to speed on ICS yet but JB should be similar enough that it will roll over.

    DISCLAIMER: This is NOT a thread to rant about what you hate about JellyBean, or how much you want ICS back. Any posts NOT relating to new features, or that are not helpful towards the topic WILL be deleted without notice.

    Here is a similar thread for ICS Changes from previous versions courtesy of revise: Android 4.0 (ICS) Features and Changes

    Here are OS specific items (most of these are Ice Cream Sandwich but will apply to JellyBean as well):


    Video from Phandroid on JellyBean (The Nexus 7 has a phone style JellyBean UI, the TF still has the tablet style with the status bar at the bottom):


    Feature changes from previous OS's (Gingerbread and Honeycomb)

    Stock changes:
    • Face Unlock with Blink to verify person is real
    • Google Now searching
    • Offline Voice Typing
    • Better predictive typing with the Android Keyboard
    • Revamped camera UI with easy access to photos and filmstrip views
    • Play Store Updates on downloads changed files (saves average of 66% of data downloads)
    • Dynamically resizing/moving widgets (widgets automatically make room for themselves on a home screen and resize if necessary)
    • New Fonts and languages


    Notification changes:
    • Three offset notification icon ABOVE the notification panel will clear out all notifications
    • Expandable notifications (get more info from each notification) with a pinch. (Only works on some notifications)

    Easter Egg (Thanks SkookumPete)
    • Tap repeatedly on the version number (Settings - About). Long press on the image (drag around a bit too) and then have fun trying to get all of the beans off the screen!


    And SkookumPete also added this: Android - Android 4.1, Jelly Bean
    If you find more, feel free to add them below and we will add them to the OP.

    That’s not a JB thing, it’s one of Asus’ additions. It’s on their ICS build as well.

    slide unlock gives easy access to Google Now...haven't had a chance to play with it yet and am not sure I see getting a great deal of use out of it with a wifi only device...but will play and see. Anyone else that may have google now on, say the nex7 for example, have any experiences with it?

    interestingly now it seems we are prompted each time we choose to open something that may be done with multiple apps for either "always" or "Just once" instead of a checkbox for using a default app. I rather like this as the checkbox was very small...these tap zone selections seem better suited to this functionality.
