    Very nice. That Storm is running just as smoothly as mine. Its funny though cause Kevin didn't get his for a few hours after it was put out.. and he said he was going crazy to get home and get it. lol
    Most people think going from a Storm to a Curve is a downgrade... but in reality going from a Storm to anything is an UPGRADE!!!

    seems like my transition from landscape to portrait is noticeably slower than that phone.

    It's totally device specific. But this OS is definitely an improvement over .65.

    Same here. Wondering why on Kevin's phone the highlight follows his finger on the home screen. I updated to .75 and mine still sticks on the first application your finger touches... Something funny is going on here.

    you have to hide enough of your icons on your menu so that it cannot scroll, then you will be able to have the highlight follow your finger

    yep hide or move applications until no scroll . . then it will follow your finger. Mine is that speed now on.65 . . . wonder if it will get better or I am maxed out.

    Hey Guys,

    There's a secret to that - you need to remove some of your icons so only 16 or less are showing when you enter the full homescreen.

    Reason? If there's more than 16...than the device is taking your finger's input to scroll down to see more icons. If 16 or less or showing, then no scrolling is required so it the icons track with your finger movement.

    Would be nice if it could track and scroll at the same time though. Maybe in a future OS update??

    I have pondered the possibility of track and scroll simultaneously, but can only think of a couple feasible methods. One, have two different swipe speeds, one for the highlight and one for the scroll (don't know which should be faster). second idea is no vertical highlight following, but allow it on the horizontal direction...either way it is possible, hmmm

    A good way, which i use, is create different folders, that way you dont have to hide anything, but can still reduce icons on your home screen. for example i have a 'utilities' folder, which has things like lock, manage connections, sounds, search, power off, etc...you can also create an 'unused' folder, put all your unused icons in there, and hide that folder...You can easily reduce icons with some good ol' file management! have fun sweeping your finger across

    Not really. There more you remove obviously increases the available memory, and allows the device to run a little quicker. But it's mainly up to the SW. Theres a pretty good difference between .65 and .75.
