comment Why does Google Search suddenly need a lot more permissions?
"Most of these permissions are used by Google Now" - I thought "Google Now" was a separate app? (Which I've been using for ... a long time already?)

comment Nexus 4 does not wake up from Sleep randomly
FWIW, I also have a Nexus 4 on 4.4.2 and I've not experienced this problem. By what you say this does sound like some kind of problem app?

comment Difficulties with the writing window
Is focus remaining on the text box you are typing in to? Just a thought that if focus was moving to another control (accidental screen tap perhaps?!) then the keyboard would close.

@Sparx: Yes, I have since used World Clock from timeanddate.com and this includes both "Makassar" and "Denpasar" from my example above.

comment Prevent Google Play from reinstalling apps after factory reset
I've often wondered about this and believed this to be the way it should work. However, when I got my Nexus 4 and connected with the same account I had used on my tablet for a while and installed many apps from Google Play, nothing was downloaded and installed automatically to my phone?!

Nope, not expecting every "backwoods". In fact the list in the stock clock is far more comprehensive than the LIST you link to. I'm not in the country I wish to set a world clock for. I've updated my question with links and an example.

comment How can I access bookmarked 'my places' maps from android phone?
I don't think you can access "custom maps" that you have created with the Googles Maps Engine via the Google Maps Android app (I assume that is what you are referring to)? The "Saved Places" (of which you don't appear to have any?) would appear to be singular places that have been saved within the App or on the Desktop. "Saved Places" is usually presented as a list of clickable places (if you have any). Once you have some saved places you then get a second list of "Nearby saved places".

comment Unresponsive menu button on several Android apps
This seems to be a different problem to the one listed in the question. The question addresses a spurious non-functioning soft-menu button that appears on all devices, in the soft-menu bar, when it is not required. You seem to have a problem with a legitimate menu button not responding.
