What are the features that Motoblur has that vanilla Android does not have?

Did you have a particular version in mind? Specifically do you mean to include or exclude the current version of Motorola's Android UI, which is no longer called Motoblur? –  Matthew Read Sep 17 '11 at 23:44
    
I would like to know about the latest released version –  Eduardo Sep 18 '11 at 15:10

Motoblur has a bunch of widget-based applications which bring your social networks and/or emails together for ease of viewing, as well as weather, rss feeds and other simple UI elements/widgets that can come in handy. However, Motoblur keeps a process running in the background for each service (type of widget) and thus many people (myself included) forego it and install a non-Motoblur ROM to conserve RAM, CPU and battery. But if you are an avid user of social networking sites then it is a good choice and worth the battery drain.

OK, I see that while Motoblur just adds some widgets, Samsung TouchWiz adds real features: android.stackexchange.com/questions/13582/… –  Eduardo Sep 25 '11 at 18:23
