Since we've had this beta for nearly 2 weeks, has anybody noticed Proactive working?
I have the same question!
I have not though to be fair I haven't paid much attention to that aspect of the OS.
I've seen it recommend apps that I recently downloaded and haven't opened yet. And I see it put up recent contacts/ones I talk to a lot. And the POI are useful, but honestly I haven't made it a huge part of my life (yet) so maybe I just don't use it enough to realize it doing stuff.
Well as of right now recommended apps is just a waste of time. Ever since I got iOS 9 it has recommended spotify, yet I rarely use spotify and haven't opened it once. And the apps I do use the most clash, Safari, messages, mail have not once showed up. I have yet to tap on a recommended app because it's so far off from what I actually want to do.
It's is a beta after all. Having said that I do t doubt it has a ways to go before being as usefulness as it can be.
Exactly why I hadn't complained about recommended apps until I can across this thread . This thread was asking for it.
I hear ya. Hopefully it will improve rapidly. I've yet to mess with it.
Working for me. My phone just told me to leave by 7:35 to get to work on time.
Lol, I'm at work right now and my phone says I'm running 4 minutes late.
Hopefully, Apple adds a Settings option for which suggestions you want to see; Contacts, Apps, Nearby and News. As of now, it's all or nothing.
The suggested contacts part seems to be working as described. The suggested apps just shows the most recently downloaded apps, like everyone else, so that probably isn't working yet. The nearby section changes depending on the time of day, but I have yet to find it useful. The news headlines update, but I don't expect it to "learn" my interest until the News app is added. (9to5Mac has you covered for an unnecessarily long overreaction to beta software not being fully functional when it comes to Proactive, Search and Siri.)
My question is, why does this need a swipe left from home, instead of pull down like today. Seems I'd want to access this while I'm in other apps.
Oh cool, my phone added a movie in my calendar based on an email receipt from fandango. It got the time wrong though, lol. It starts at 7:15.
Did you report the bug?
And this is probably why it includes search feature. Until it gets good enough you can still search from there.
I've seen both OS X El Cap and iOS 9 suggest contacts and emails which is great. I don't think I'll ever use the new search features because it's not part of my workflow generally.
Are there settings to control what appears in the Proactive screen?
That's my question too.
I would like to control the content and search order.
Other categories are not appearing, in my search; e.g. Reminders and contacts....and I can't get rid of Bing.
Agreed. I don't need contacts there, I'd rather have more news or apps.
Well, it replaces the app switcher recent/favorite contacts so I am guessing it wont ever be optional to move.
But I disabled that. I only ever talk to 2-4 people, so I don't really need it. They already have text threads.
You can turn off contacts on the search page in settings -> general -> search
Does that disable them appearing on the new proactive/search page, or simply from being indexed/searched by a search that you can run (from the new proactive/search page or from the usual spotlight search)?
