    Yes, I'm taking about searching within a category, though searching from the marketplace home screen seems faster as well.

    They still haven't fixed Marketplace as far as I'm concerned. Scroll down apps looking for something interesting. Tap on one to have a look, then back to the list and I find myself right back at the beginning and have to start scrolling down all over again. I don't think I've ever reached the bottom of any category before giving up. It doesn't happen everytime, and often I get returned to somewhere nearby where I left off, but it happens - a lot.

    And the failure of them to not let you compose and save a draft text message - which just about every basic phone has been able to do since the stone age - is nothing short of criminal.

    One thing that the update DOES NOT fix is the lag in rendering images on tiles. On more than one occasion, Ive jumped to the home screen from an app, scrolled down my tiles, and none of them were displaying images until a split second after I stopped scrolling. An example would be Alpha Jax which has an image of the Alpha Jax logo on the tile. I dont know if its related, but WMPoweruser has a tip for dev unlocked devices which fixes the issue where live tiles dont update, even if youre well under the 15-app limit for third party apps. There certainly seems to be an issue with tile updates, which is really troubling given that its one of the key strengths of the platform.

    The 15 tile limit is for "live push tiles". I have 46 tiles on my start screen. No refresh trouble except when exiting Beezz. Don't use it anymore. Too heavy. Live tile problem is due to a misbehaving registry key. You can fix it but you need to be dev unlocked..

    Yeah, I'm familiar with the limit and the hack to "fix" it. Since Chevron doesn't work post-Nodo, I'll wait to see what other must have hacks there are before ponying up the cash to unlock my phone.
