I'm thinking about giving CM11 a try, but worried about some of the stock apps that I will no longer have, specifically anything that makes use of the s-pen. I'm wondering if there are usable replacements for things like S Note, Action Memos, Screen Writing, etc. Also, if anyone has a suggestion for the best replacement for the camera app, since that has a lot of features stock doesn't have

In the Play Store, CM S Pen Add-on and Note Buddy (S Pen Helper), for S Pen functionality. Papyrus and/or Memo (by Nathan Garside), for Note taking.

Try this, for a more full featured camera: http://galaxy-note-3.wonderhowto.com...dsoruce_bottom

Thanks, I tend to "collect" camera apps, hadn't heard of this one.

Well, the first time I used it, it locked up my phone? (not exactly sure what happened, because I was letting a friend use it to take a pic, he tried and said "Huh? what happened? The screen is off... Wont turn on...". Battery pull. Hasn't happened since...)
But otherwise seems smart, well laid out, responsive, the effects seem well chosen and plentiful... But using 90% of them introduces major viewfinder lag. (most time I don't use effects, perhaps a bit of vignetting, contrast push, so no real loss there.)
Couple of translation oddities in some functions, and the weibo stuff seems superfluous...
All in all, I like it, will play a bit more, not sure if it will be a complete replacement for say Vignette, but might for the stock..

Hmmm, that's interesting. I didn't experience any of those issues, when I was using it. Thanks for the update.
