We were so amazed when we first saw this on MacRumors, we had to go check it out for ourselves. Sure enough, Apple has built elegant notifications right into the lock screen. Just walk into (or by) a Starbucks and a tiny icon will appear opposite the camera shortcut. Pull up and you'll be magically transported into the app and ready to make a purchase.
9Personalized Share Sheets
Apple's new app extensions could very well end up being the greatest feature in iOS 8 and change the way we work on our mobile devices, but we're still going to be stuck using the same old share sheets that we've had since iOS 6. At least we won't have to swipe to get to the app we want, though; Apple's made share sheets in iOS 8 completely customizable, so you can put the important ones right up front.
