    I do it with every beta, and I have since iOS 3's beta on the good ol touch.

    Yes, I know you're not supposed to use it as your main iOS version, but the features are so fun its hard to give up. Besides, if I can make it through the first few iOS 7 betas, then I can make it through this one.

    So, who's being stupid :rolleyes: like me and using iOS 9 for their main OS?

    Me. Have done since 8.4b1 on my 6+ and have upgraded to beta 1.

    Life is too short to wait for stable releases which aren't that stable anyway. :p

    I've installed it because my phone is a "nice to have" and it's not critical that I have it working 100% of the time. This is my first "real" beta :)

    I just downgraded back to the 8.4 seed. For me, iOS 9 was fun to check out for all of 10 minutes, but I need to keep testing on iOS 8.

    Many people have done this here for many betas. Nothing really insane about it around these parts.

    I'm on iOS 9. Nothing to worry about so far. A few re springs here and there is all.

    It probably won't be much different than the public beta a month from now.

    I guess I'm crazy enough. Betas are fun to use and I don't rely on my phone for super important business/presidential calls so some bugs are bearable.

    i downloaded it today and already having a blast with it,
    Sure it's a little sluggish but honestly I feel like i've had worse beta 4s in the past so i'll have no problems using it as a daily driver

    I am using it on my 6 for daily use and I've only had one re-spring thus far while trying to view a picture in a group text. I am really digging the font change.

    I am also loving the 10.11 beta. The name is a little weird though.

    The font change is awesome, number 1 reason to switch for me. I hate Helvetica Neue. As soon as Yosemite came out I ran the script to go back to Lucida Grande.

    I have done this ever since iOS 5, except for iOS 8 last year because I was jailbroken back then. I updated my phone to iOS 9 today, expecting the choppiness, sluggishness, and bugginess that iOS 7 brought on. I was surprised that it was almost as stable as iOS 8, save a few small bugs. The battery life was also pretty bad, although that will probably fix itself when the phone stops indexing :p

    I've generally run every beta on my daily driver phone since iOS 3 beta 1. I've never really had any issues until iOS 8 beta, that thing was a horrible slug. I actually reverted back from it, which was a first ever. Been running iOS 9 since it went up today, and no major issues so far. Seems at least as stable as 8 was, but then again 8 was a joke performance wise.

    I wanted to put it on my iPad but I already told myself months ago "I will wait for beta 3 at least!" I must do it...

    I think I can, I think I can.
    I want iOS 9 I just know that an insane amount of bugs and crashes even just on my iPad will piss me off so I'll wait for at least beta 3.

    Beta 1's are always the worst, this is better than iOS 8's though.

    I'm using it on my daily driver too. Have Android M on my other daily driver. I may be crazy. In terms of iOS 9 beta 1, it's far ahead of iOS 7 and iOS 8 beta 1. FAR AHEAD.

    In the same boat, trying to hold off, but have it downloaded and ready when the urge hits.

    It's surprisingly stable for me. Just installed it on my 6+. No issues yet other than a little lag here and there.
