Downloading the update just now but I assume you can just pin all your favourite games, apps and webpages to a panel on the home screen for easy access. Can't imagine I'll use it much though


Annoyingly you cant seem to pin to the Home Screen, theres a new tile called "Pinned" which takes you to a different screen with your pinned apps.

Whats the point of Pinning anyway?


It's essentially a somewhat more useful version of Quick Play, you can pin a lot of things to the "My Pins" section like website favorites, games, music or apps. It would have been better if it created an entire "page" (like Games, Videos and Social, etc) that had all my pinned items so I would never have to go to any of the other pages again.

well i got the update and currrently using the Xbox IE to write this

its slow and laggy on the neowin site, a chatpad is a must IMO, its just to much of a PITA to type othherwise. other then that there isnt many issues except the Ad Banners are broke. but that ay be a thing with IE Xbox

unrelated to IE and Neowin, after doing the update it feels like everything is bigger UI wise to where im going to check if its still set to 1080, also the UI is kinda changed. more tiles in some areas, mostly ads

Nope, any site that I've tried that uses flash has just prompted me to download the latest version of flash player

Woops, signed the NDA and said on here that I wouldn't be discussing it. Have the update for an hour and I'm blabbing.

I noticed that too! I'm glad I'm not the only one, this next issue isn't new, but sadly is still present. Is it me or does the whole UI look scaled up and blurry, especially in 1080? I Text edges are blurry etc.

Noticed a lot of small changes in console settings. I haven't seen this section of the dashboard in years so not sure what's really new.
