Didnt tworld get closed down a few months ago?

Anyway spark is a new beginning, So Spark should stop renaming the 'browser' to Tworld! The icon is UGLY and it should just be called what it actually is. Browser.

 

Particularly on high end smartphones like the samsung s4 and s5!


Also vodafone and 2degrees don't have any branding on their samsung phones so perhaps you should remove yours. especially considering its a high end phone.

Would be nice to keep it as close to stock as possible.

At least Sworld would tie in better with the Galaxy S devices. :)

Y! Tworld - something to me says it's tied to yahoo somehow(on the blue button says yahoo!), and given that it defaults to a yahoo website?

all things take time, i think this is one of those

Yeah, The default home page is yahoo.

 

I would be fine if they had a shortcut to launch the yahoo site.

 

But renaming samsungs browser to TWorld is just stupid.


This would be like vodafone renaming theirs to vodafone live (which they used to years ago but no longer do)

TWorld is something from the WAP days. Time to move on Spark!

Also the boot logo is REALLY BIG. I think it should be on a black background instead of white because when the phone boots its black and then goes white for the spark animation and then back to black for samsung. Or even better ditch the animation completely and just have samsung like its supposed to be
