    I had the new Market update overnight and now it all look much better but what are your views?

    Do you like it or was the old one better?

    I like it. Its able to show more apps, with less scrolling.

    I must say i was reluctant to try it but the last rom i flashed has it and it is really not that bad, one has just to get used to it as the UI is quite different as the one from the old version, for example my apps are in the menu and not as button etc. I also find it a bit slower but not too much so it is no issue. Another thing i experienced just today is that after an update the market still showed the same updated apps as not yet updated.

    I like it. I think it is better than the old market. The old market had that half green circle on top and just look unfinished to me. This new market layout, fits the over all phone design nicely. Looks a lot better in landscape mode too.

    I liked the simplicity of the old Market. The new Market reminds me of Blackberry. It now takes 8 steps to do something that used to take 2.

    The layout is nice, however, it does not allow me to download larger cache games, I have to switch back to the old market to download them. The new market seems to be formatted for larger screen phones, with optimized viewing. It would probably look crappy on a small, dull screen.

    I might like it if it wasn't so slow.
