5.0 Lollipop - worth it?

Okay, so I will admit I am not awake in the morning, not until I get a few cups of caffeine in me. As such, I touched the wrong button one fine morning and allowed my Samsung Galaxy S5 to upgrade to 5.0 Lollipop.

Well, this caused a few problems. Several ofmy apps were summarily uninstalled, without my permission, I might add. Several more started acting a bit wonky but they settled down after a while. The big issue was with my MobiSystems OfficeSuite 8.

This suite, which worked very well before, now has big issues. It will no longer connect to any cloud service, forcing me to do things in a very difficult, round-about way. I have to use the DropBox app to download the file I need or upload it. Also, as long as Calibri font is okay, no issue there . . . NOT! I have transitioned to Google Docs, Sheets and Drive to continue to do my work at this point.

As an aside, I am considering suing MobiSystems for failure to provide a working app that was paid for with good money.

So, if you haven't upgraded, don't do it. Nothing to be gained, a huge amount to be lost.
