    Tried clearing data and cache and that didn't help. Been sitting on "loading" screen for thirty minutes. I have some apps that I really need to download. Sigh, sometimes being an Android user is extremely annoying.

    I feel the same way, this market blows on many levels. If you're into rooting, I found that there are roms that have the old market. Something to look into. And fyi, may want to edit your previous post ;)

    Don't respond to BS like that or else you'll both get punished.

    Anyway, the new market sucks. On 3G data it's impossible to do anything with. On Wifi I love it though... it's nice, but I wish it was more Mobile orientated... since it's for PHONES after all.

    lol, I think you're right! You're not missing anything. It looks better than the old one but until they fix it, I'd rather have the old one.

    The market flows ok (new) on my streak, but i dont like the very small frame (lower left bottom for example). Would be nice if you touch on a frame and that section eitehr pop-up larger or fills the entire screen with a "back" optioin at the top, etc.

    I can deal with it being slower because I like the multi-account support. I'm also sure it would be much faster if you could disable the 'featured' items. They seem to hold everything up.

    I could get to like it if it wasn't so slow. Fortunately, I've rolled back to the old one.
