    Anyone noticed if it's working better yet?

    Anyone noticed if it's still only certain Macbook's (i.e Bluetooth 4.0 LE) that it works with?

    I cannot get it working between my 5s and retina mini.....best ive seen so far is it shows my ipad in hot spot section of my iphone but nothing i do on either device shows up on the other devices lock screen. if i try to call someone on my ipad the screen gos black for a second then comes back to the website.....any ideas on how to get this working? Both running beta 2 and i tried restarting both. bluetooth is on on both both on same wifi network.

    I got it semi working. If I start an email or browse on my iPad it'll show up on my phone. But if I start something with my phone it won't show up on the iPad hmm

    It is working really well on my 2013 MacBook Air (w/ BT LE), but not at all with my 2011 MacBook Pro (BT 2.1). Apple might enable it in later beta releases. I hope so. It's a killer feature

    It only partially works with my iPhone 5s and iPad Air. iPad -> iPhone shows the Safari icon on the bottom of the iPhone screen, but opening it doesn't actually bring up the active web page from the iPad. iPhone -> iPad does not work.

    None of it works with my 2010 iMac, which is apparently (and sadly) to be expected. I'll have to try it with my mid-2011 MacBook Air, which is supposed to support it.

    I haven't been able to get Handoff working at all between my MacBook Air 2011 running Yosemite beta 2 and my iPhone 5 running iOS 8 beta 2. Any tips? Both have Bluetooth on, both on same wifi network, I have Handoff enabled in MBA system preferences.
