    Was able to get a SS of my Sammy Focus running the WP7.8 custom ROM. Certainly worth it if you have the guts to try and install it.

    Thx guys.

    The only issue I ran across so far was a crazy-fast battery drain. Once I dug under the hood a bit it wasn't hard to find the culprit. Background tasks. After turning some off manually and removing a few apps it cleared itself up nicely.

    To me, that looks horribly cluttered. I'm glad groupy is in the app store.

    Yes, but at least you can customize those LIVE TILES to your liking.

    Warning - my opinion follows

    I can see where having those apps together on one screen can be handy - minimal swiping to get where you need to go.

    On the flip side, that is extremely cluttered and looks like the Windows Phone OS ate a bit of Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread and crapped it out over the phone screen.

    That might be just about the same number of apps I have on my entire phone. Do you need a recipe app on the start screen up top? I plan on having medium sized tiles of my most needed at top a large for calendar and then small below. The start screen does scroll.
