    Question Quick Glance icon descriptions

    Does anyone know where to get a description of the Quick Glance icons? In between the time and the three static notifications (phone/ message/power indicators) there is sometimes another row of icons. A lot of them I understand (such as GooglePlay update, WiFi connected, etc), but there are a couple icons that seem to randomly appear. One is a cloud and another is a square with a car in it. I cannot figure out what these icons mean when they appear. I also cannot find any information about how the S4 decides what to put in that row. This is the last mystery of the S4... please help! Thx!

    when the icons appear, go to your home screen and pull down the notification window. whatevers in the "ongoing" section will show up in the quick glance section, and you'll see the symbol to the left and a discription to the right. if you want more info, touch the discription and it'll take you to the app. these icons should appear on the left side of the notification bar too.

    That's the strange thing... there are a couple icons (such as the cloud and car-in-a-box) that have no matching notification bar icons. When those icons appear, there is nothing in the notification bar and nothing has changed with the phone. I'll try and capture a screen shot the the icon(s) next time they appear.

    for the cloud, i would review the settings for any weather app installed. do you automatically sync w a cloud service? for the square and car, i'd review the settings for any navigation apps or anything else related to driving.

    I have no weather app installed.. do not sync with any cloud storage service.. and haven't used navigation as of yet. Furthermore, I have never seen these icons in any other part of the system or associated with any other application. Not on my phone or anywhere I've looked on the web. And as you can imagine, I've been looking! Strange. It is driving me CRAZY!
