    Thank you for the info and qr codes. I picked up the black adw theme, slop ski and doodle dash....all three were worth getting.

  • Steve

    Black ADW Theme kinda....sucks. No offense to the themer, but if you include custom icons for a color based theme, maybe make them that color? The icon for the Market is mostly brown, the icon for Maps is blue and white, the icon for the News widget is white and yellow...

  • portnoyd

    Droid Shooting is broken on the DX and apparently pretty much every other phone out there.

  • Kay

    How is MP3 Music Box not piracy? You're downloading, not streaming, music for free over a public platform from other individuals. Isn't that pretty much the definition of piracy?
