    I'm on my way to the developer portal to start downloading iOS 8. My plan is to install it on my iPhone 5s and my iPod touch 5th generation. I'm super excited about this release. Who is with me? Are you downloading iOS 8? What's been your experience with download times? Any issues with your installation?

    Installed on my 5s. Running smoothly so far. Looking forward to the actionable notifications.

    So far I like the predictive text....

    That feature might be limited to newer devices.

    I think I am going to hold off installing for awhile. I was really excited and wanted to. But I use a Pebble watch and I heard there was issues with it interfacing with iOS8.

    Sitting this one out until final release, want to preserve my JB, iOS 8 looks like a baby step in the right direction, waiting impatiently for a possible iwatch :)

    Oh crap. I went ahead and found the ipsw file and installed it. After a reset today it says I can't use the device since my udid is not registered for the developer program. Please help! Can someone please add my udid to their developer account?

    I prefer to have a device that "just works," so I'll wait until the fall.

    Just so you know I still have you on my developer account. You're good to go if you do decide to download.

    Same for me. It brings me back to the Android days and I always loved the predictive text.
