Alfred's New Ramblings

Yahoo’s Aviate has gone live

Aviate has slipped from Beta to Live on 23 Jun 14.  No more invites required for new users! At the same time, it rolled out a slew of new changes.  There is now a third panel for summary changes.  The Work, Home and Moving collection / workspace shows up here.  For me the Home workspace shows up only during the night.

There is a swipe up Favorites section for quick dial. The first version has a GUI calculation error for small screens.  This was quickly fixed in an update.  The screen still left much to be desired.  There is no way of knowing what number you are dialling!  With that much screen estate, one would thought there will be a button for IM stuff eg, WhatsApp, Line etc.

 

The rest of the Aviate functions remained the same.

After nearly a month of use, I am still trying to get use to the new third panel. The work and home workspace collection sometimes does not show up, ended I need to swipe around to get my work or home apps.  Most frustrating.  I am tempted to put the home and work collections there permanently.
