    Issue:
    "I liked being able to create bookmark folders to separate some of my tech sites from sports sites and whatnot, seems as if Android can't."
    Possible solution:
    You can install a program like Folder Organizer that allows you to create not only links to your apps in Folders but also Contacts, and bookmarks.

    Issue:
    "The one and ONLY thing that I will miss is the Safari browser, which is VASTLY superior to the stock Android browser. I absolutely LOATHE the way bookmarks are arranged and displayed, and the inability to create bookmark folders in the stock Android browser."
    Possible Solution:
    Folder Organizer (mentioned above) lets you create folders to put in links, also Dolphin HD browser has gotten plenty of praise from members.


    Issue:
    "im still struggling to get my music looking like it did on my iphone. I had all the album artwork and it was nice to scroll through it. I still havent found something to do it easily on my evo."
    Possible solution:
    You may want to try out HomePipe from the Android market.
    Another is bTunes from the market. it's a direct ripoff of iphone/itouch's music player. and mp3Tagger Pro which edits the ID3 tags and writing the album art to your mp3 files
    Another is doubletwist

    I've used the search feature and can't seem to get much feedback on getting album art to download using Double Twist. I used 'Media Monkey' to tag my AAC files, but some album art still will not appear. Really my only gripe thus far....

    Can someone please explain to me how copy and paste works? The short instructions in the users guy don't seem to apply to the EVO. I'm having the hardest time selecting just a few words. I only get entire messages or paragraphs to highlight to copy.

    Tap and hold where you want the copy to start, select "copy" and tap a second time to designate the end.

    Awesome - Thanks! Another question - Is there a way to zoom in and out of emails in the gmail app? I find that many emails are either too big so that I have to keep swiping back and forth to read them (very irritating) or so small that I can't read the text in embedded items.
