    Is anyone using this on Android? What are your experiences?

    Looks real cool, but $15 for a UI? Pass.

    I used it on WM. Definitely improved the stock functionality by a HUGE amount. I was just curious about on android because I have no problem with stock functionality and not sure what all mobile shell would bring. Stock android does virtually everything I want it to do with exception of decent exchange email and that was solved by touchdown.

    Hey there EQBob! Been awhile.......
    As far as i can see it looks like it just makes the device look prettier and adds more menus to navigate through

    Hey Met0--agree with your assessment. The screencaps of it look like an almost bewieldering. Good to see you again.

    Just wow

    I dont think I ever heard of Android's UI referred to as "bloated" before. Especially compared to a crazy over the top tacky 3D UI.

    Good ol engadget.

    Im liking it. It gives you a 3d version of the screens. since there is no instruction booklet your on your own trying to figure it out, but it only took me a day or so to get :)

    That's cool if you like it, not my thing, but can understand why ya dig it.

    I was pretty shocked to hear them called stock Android bloated though. I mean c'mon, bloated? heh - that review was pretty over the top biased too.

    Isn't that just the rotating carousel to pick which screen to go to? Looks very similar to what they had in MS for WM.

    it is, they did take some of the elements from their previous versions and implement them here.

    Other users have also said that is great but to me it just seems so plain.
    If it really is good maybe they should make a commercial like this one (hidden meaning and all)

    America needs to make every commercial like that...including the voice of William Defoe
