Re: Carousel Superfast Spin
HTC is (unfortunately) trying to be too much like apple. Bunch of animated transitions? Check. Lack of options? Check. Acting like only they know what is best for you? Check.
I like the standard animations and such going from page to page, but the full carousel serves absolutely no purpose. At first I thought a full spin would ALWAYS take you back to the home screen when it was done.. but all it does is spin a few times and bring you back to the exact same page. WTF is the point of that?
Couple that with the utterly useless dock and you're irritating me. Sure, I get it, you think the phone button is the most useful thing in the world so you make it take up 2 "slots". Even though it's used more as everything else.. But at least it's useful at times. IMO the biggest tragedy with the dock is that they waste space for the "All apps" button and "Customize." Both, btw, are a menu->click away from being selected, yet we can't customize it. How often do you use the customize button? About 850x less than I use the browser or another app.
And finally, the 1-page at a time app drawer is annoying. Again, stop being like apple, I don't want to swipe 8 times to get to the last set of apps, I want to just flick once and I'm there.
I'll probably install Go Launcher just to have a normal home again, but I would probably settle for the Carousel=Off alone.
