    So, in 10.2.1, if I typed "fb I love instant actions!" I could simply post "I love instant actions!" on my facebook timeline. Now in 10.3.1 on my Classic, if I try the same thing, it'll just bring up a new box where I have to type that in, THEN post to the timeline... I don't get it, since when was it a good thing to add more steps to accomplish the same thing??

    People have been saying they messed up the 10.3.1 universal search. Please tell me more about what u find compared to 10.2.1.

    I just gave it a try on my Classic and checked out info about it on Google. Sure enough, right now I just need to type "fb" or "tweet" and hit enter, then type the message, then enter again. Apparently before you could just type "fb This is a status update!" and it'd just post, no confirmations, nothing.

    I think I'd prefer the older style, where there's less steps. It changed because of BlackBerry Assistant.

    Yep, the old style was genius, I would show people how I could simply type it out and it'll be posted on my timeline and people were pretty impressed by it. Now with this 37 step process it's almost the same as just launching the app, lol. Ok, of course I'm exaggerating, but it definitely isn't as convenient as before, not TOO bad, but I never like any step backwards, even small ones...

    I think the bulk of the complaints have to do with all-touch devices. With the keyboard ones, I find that it works about the same, you just type and it'll search. I think with the all-touch devices they added an extra step to get to the search instead of the assistant. The thing that did get messed up, even on the keyboard device like my Classic, is posting a tweet or fb using instant actions. Now it requires one extra step...

    Even on keyboard phones I read that the assistant integration messed things up. It isn't as good as the 10.2.1. Please do share your review on the whole Universal search experience on 10.3.1 compared to 10.2.1. Thanks

    The assistant works better now but definitely requires more effort than it used to.
    Best example, in the early version the assistant would automatically close once you were done with it. Now it just stays and waits...

    This is what OP is referring to. This is on my Verizon Q10 with the most current VZW OS.

    Wow, "new and improved" instant actions are worse now???-img_20141224_022637.png

    Notice it works just as OP says. I type FB and immediately dialogue box opens and I type status with option to post. Super quick and convenient.

    It's not only Facebook, it is also Twitter (tweet Enter Text) and especially taking a quick note (note Enter Text). While Twitter for example still works, it just takes more (annoying) steps, taking a quick note does not. You need to open remember as the suggested result.

    Exactly, thanks for posting the screenshot, that's exactly what I mean. I thought that was absolutely genius. But now it's gone... :-(

    Oh ok, I didn't know because I don't use twitter. Thanks for reporting. I hope they fix this...

    Well, it still works in the same way, but I do find that it does take a little while longer for the results to populate.

    That's sad. I already think the search is slower than BBOS and was hoping 10.3.1 would speed things up X_X

    Lol, well, so far they do definitely make improvements on-going. 10.0 to 10.2.1 was a world of difference.

    Yey!!! I did not know about this! XD lol. Thank you

    More and more, I really start to think. Maybe 10.2.1 is as far as I'm going to go. Too many issues at the moment with 10.3

    Absolutely. Though I started using a BB10 from 10.2.1 so don't have first hand experience
