    Depends. If you are on your phone all day long it's an integral part of your job I wouldn't do it.
    If you have a job where it's important but not integral I would say go ahead.

    It's quite smooth for the most part. Very impressed.

    It's a developer beta. So I wouldn't. Unless you're daily driving a new app you're developing using iOS 9 features.

    The public beta will be a much better candidate for you.

    It's already up and running on my phone. I know how to revert to 8.4( in the public beta program) I think I'll be fine, I just wanted to make sure it didn't have any deal breaking bugs like beta one's battery issues.

    I'm using it as a daily driver on my iphone 6, loving it. beta 1 no it was horrible battery and heating issues. Beta 2 cleared all that up and is very smooth on my device.

    The fact i refuse to restore to 8.3 for the jailbreak shows how nice iOS 9 is.

    Beta 2 is really stable and battery life is phenomenal. I use it daily on iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6+.

    It's alright to use as a daily driver. But FYI YouTube app sometimes force quits.

    The irony of that username & thread title / body has amused me.

    Not sure what is "so good" about it on iPhone compared to 8.3, other than a small increase in battery life. IMO, 8.3 JB (and hopefully 8.4) takes the cake over this small update.

    I've been on beta 2 on my main device since release. Yes, it works as a daily driver just fine.

    Agreed. Beta 1 was a joke, I had to remove it after 3 hours. Beta 2 is pretty darn good so far.

    Honestly, I didn't actually need to post this thread, I would have installed it even if people said it sucked:D

    Haha, I used to go crazy flashing ROMs and kernels on my Nexus 4. I think it only stayed stock for a month and that was only because I was new to Android at the time and wanted to learn how to use it before modifying the system:p
    I think for most of my time on iOS before the Nexus (iOS 3.1 to 6.x) more than half that time was it being jailbroken:D:D
