    Hiya,

    Is there a way I can change the layout to Android Market when browsing, not so keen with white text on black background? Thanks.

    Just wait for the Donut update that should be getting pushed before too long. It revamps the market appearance.

    If you can't wait that long, the cyanogen ROM already has this change, starting at experimental version 4.1.10.1.

    Not currently but Android Market is changing with Donut 1.6 - I think its black on white, so hopefully easier to read.

    There's also an app called MyMarket but the colors are still the same.

    Donut update is Android OS v1.6 (we're currently using v1.5 called Cupcake).

    The next version after that is already codenamed Eclair ... I hope this doesn't turn into fatware. :eek:

    I have the new version of "market" and its not b/w. Its colors and has screen shots. A lot easier on the eyes. It also easier to find what your looking for.

    LOL .... you say its colors ... Black and white are colors ...

    The Text is black on a white background ,,, icons and Screen shots are rendered in their design colors ...

    Are we not talking about the same thing ?
