    Is this not possible for app developers?

    I don't really see myself giving up mavericks and a Handover app compromise can be a bargain trade off.

    What do you give up moving from Mavericks to Yosemite?

    Honestly, what's wrong with Yosemite?
    It looks different on the screenshots, but using it is way different. You'll like it.

    There seem to be a lot of under lying bugs. You can see them on this forum.

    I also don't want to give up the 3D look of maverick.

    No way

    Betting there's no market for such an app.

    Betting the vast majority of people interested in Handoff are likely to upgrade, there's no compelling, widespread reason not to.

    Seems a lot of work to replicate a system-level process for an old OS.

    Nope, and a developer isn't going to create one. The OS is a legacy OS now, and any new development will be focusing on Yosemite. Since the upgrade is free, why not upgrade? Tbh, I've not really run into too many bugs, no more then Mavericks had when it was rolled out.

    actually, i'd even say that 10.10 is less buggy than 10.9 when it came out....

    Keep in mind, 2/3 of those posts were from the BETA versions of the OS, the versions intended to suss out the bugs so the final release is solid.

    Yes, there are still some bugs (I have one that's pretty glaring) but are things ever 100% bug-free?

    Handover for mavericks

    Sure things are never 100%. It was just a debate. I didn't realise people are really passionate about the update. Besides the bugs my other reluctance as mentioned was loss of the 3D. PERHAPS a lone preference for me?

    Yosemite is not buggy, in my experience.
    But, your choice.

    I felt similarly, but it's a really nice operating system to use. You don't care about the dock after 10-15 minutes.
