Motorola updates Active Display to be more responsive

Motorola updates Active Display to be more responsive
For those of you who have a new Moto X on the way, or are hoping to grab one during today's Holiday Deal event, you'll have an update waiting for you in the Play Store when your device arrives. Motorola has updated the Active Display app for its newer line of devices. The update promises to make the feature faster and more responsive.

The change log for the app is pretty short, but what it does say is very nice. The change log reads in full: "Fix for the 1-2s delay seen when swiping down or up to unlock from Active Display screen." That is a pretty big fix if it really does get rid of that delay. A 1-2 second delay can get pretty grating over time. 

Of course, the update is only available for new Motorola devices with AMOLED displays, which means the Moto X, DROID Maxx, and DROID Ultra. The DROID mini, and Moto G both use LCD displays, and so don't support the Active Display feature. If you have a compatible device just check the Play Store for the update.

Not seeing this update anywhere for my Droid Ultra or my lady's Moto X.

Hmmm. I didn't realize that the Droid Mini didn't support the Active Display feature or that it has an LCD display for that matter. Never noticed even side by side with the Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx.

My Droid Mini has the Active Display feature, I think PA got confused.

It stops the screen from being black for one to two seconds, but it still feels sluggish.
