    Hi,

    I am often asked why I stick to my webOS devices and why I love them so much. Aside from showing off the unique features of my smartphone, I decided to put together what makes webOS so awesome for me ... and maybe others as well.

    If you should find the time to read webOS Awesomeness and to provide your feedback here, I would be very happy.

    Thank you in advance!
    Cheers, Vince

    I agree with most of your points. However, there are variations of "just type" out there already but they are limited to stored data only. As for Synergy, Windows Phone does this quite well with the "People Hub". Your last statement is the most poignant though, the original is indeed the best. If I ever came across that little twerp Apotheker on the street I may have to paraphrase Melville "from hell's heart I swipe at thee!"

    Widgets are battery suckers. No widgets = good.

    The notifications on WebOS should never have covered the launcher. That is a horrible feature.

    What does that mean when you say notifications cover the launcher?

    I am thinking you should change "Bad Reputation" to either "Damaged Reputation" or "Stagnant Ecosystem".... Otherwise, I like what you've written so far.

    You mean push up the launcher? I do like notifications at the bottom of the screen. I have android now and I have to reach over and slide the notification pane down from top to bottom and while it seems like it's not a big deal, it feels just like when you're in a car that has hard to reach radio controls and heater buttons and you have to do a reach. Bottom of screen = simple flick with thumb in one handed operation.

    When there is a notification for a missed text and a missed call the bottom of the screen is under the notifications and that includes the bar on the bottom. I don't want to have to swipe away notifications to make a call.

    What do you mean? The bar moves up when there is a notification.

    If you mean when you expand the notifications then at this point the launch bar disappears, at no point does any part of the screen go 'under' the notifications. The screen size changes dynamically to accommodate the notifications.

    I don't ever recall that being a problem.

    Ohhh, Rnld... no, no, no... I cannot believe this... cīmon... you have thousands years here in forum and until now you don't know that you can swipe back to minimize notifications and have the full screen, make the call and touch the notifications to show again?

    Ohhh... c'mon... spare my patience, please... I don't believe that you don't know... This is not funny...

    PSđ: Somebody can donate a webOS phone to this guy know what he are losting?

    PSē: the moderators calling my attention in 3... 2... 1...

    maybe he prefers the notifications on the touchpad being part of the top bar as oppose to the phone variant having them bump up the launchbar?

    minor difference, i do prefer the touchpad method but i cant say that the phone ones "bad", i can live with either quite happily.

    Geekpeter,

    I believe that he is talking about that:



    And only who never used a webOS phone donīt know that with swipe back, the notifications are minimized again:



    And; yes, my battery is low.

    I believe this is the same member who claims to use a Pixie. Maybe the pixie is different because I am pretty sure he said once that it's annoying when you swipe away a notification and it keeps coming back.

    Pretty good laugh tho

    Widgets are great. The best part is that you have the option of not adding any to your homescreen.

    No widgets = bad.
    Having the option of using widgets = good.

    Okay guys,
    bring it back to respectful conversation, and refrain from attacking each other.
