same old same old

I'll say it again, like the last time I said it: the only thing that keeps me from using this software is the fact, that it does not "play" like an iPhone...
On the iPhone, I can use my finger to chnage a whole screen from left to right via a "swoosh"....using arrows instead of this feature is far from "iphonish-like".

So you're saying this feature doesn't actually work: "Scroll with your finger. Change pages of applications in TL with your fingers! Tap an empty space on a page and drag it left or right to switch to the next page!"?

C&D letter?

This looks like it's just asking for a C&D letter from Apple for using several of Apple's copyrighted and/or trademarked app icons.

Not too bad. I ran it for about a week but found it a little slow and a possible bug that caused my 680's unlock screen to flicker. I pulled it and no more flicker. But in all honesty I'm not sure TL was causing it.
