First thought was that it reminded me a bit of windows phone.
Will get it when Cyanogenmod does.

They certainly took clues from Microsoft's metro UI. Looks nice.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Any issues with it? I'm tempted to install that .apk but don't want to break anything :P

Installed it on my CM7.1 RC1 Desire.
Its a little slower than the previous market but appears to work fine.

Similar experience on a Galaxy S, a bit slower than the original but makes for a nice change.

Gorgeous to look at, nicely set out, slick icon fades, more categories on screen, and a graphics free "Category" page for those with no patience? What more can you ask for. Big improvement and the market is now as tasty as is should've been from the beginning.

Me likey... and it's running smoothly on my SGS.

Will install it on the Sensation this evening, and post feedback.

For now, good job Google.




Galaxy S has gone to its new owner. HTC Sensation has gone to its new
owner. Galaxy S3 has gone to its new owner. Now using Galaxy Note 3. Skipping Note 4 I think...

Did my backups like a good geek and have installed the .apk.

... wow. It looks so much better! Even if it does look very Windows phone 7 -y.

Very Nice!
I agree about the WP7-y bit :/
Still better than the old app though!

Apk installed fine on the SGSII. Interesting look but an improvement nonetheless.
