No issues except close apps doesn't work as I expected. For example if I have pandora running in background and close it via multi-tasking UI, I can still hit play on the music controls to listen to music.

I have a Samsung ATIV S Neo and tried both methods (installing the app and cert and also using the SDK developer unlock method). My device still says no update available.

Have you tried app studio method? Works on Lumia 521:)

That is how it is always been, basically the app and the music are 2 different services. So your just closing out the app interface, to close the music you can wait, restart the device or get a Stop music app.

Not that I know of, the engine is still the same but they've probably fixed bugs and tweaked performance.   Have to wait for WP 8.1 to get IE11 it seems.

you only need your account registered as an developer and to download the app. no cert or such needed for the update.

I installed it pretty much right away when I got the phone so I an't tell if there's anything that works differently, but everything seems to work fine, with one exception.

 

I can't send facebook messages from the messenger. it's set up and linked correctly on my MS account and it's activated in the messages settings. but I can only send SMS'.

Before the year is over, they'll want to get the new 1320 and 1520 out to market first with them and then shortly after that is my guess.
