    Angry I want my old market back!

    What is this crap! I bought an ANDROID phone, not a Windows phone!

    I can't keep my old market. I uninstall updates, yet every time I open my market up, it updates itself back to the stupid Windows look. How do I make it stop?!?!?!

    It may look similar to a windows phone, but I seriously suggest giving it a try. It looks and functions A LOT better than the old one. And while you can disagree on the looks part as that is subjective, you're the first person I've met that's hell bent on resisting that change. You can't argue the fact that it's more feature laden and intuitive though.

    Yeah whether you like it or not you don't have a choice. It's actually better though.

    Doesn't seem better from what I've seen. I can't say that I gave it a shot, but only because I had no choice but to you use it, and it was slow as hell. Real laggy and bogged down, much like any other Google product I've seen lately.

    The "Just In" tab is gone, so all I can browse is whatever's popular, which more often than not is not a good thing.

    The interface is just downright ugly, not uniform, and childish looking. Like a diner menu that assumes its customers are too stupid or drunk to order something without a picture of it.

    The comments and review are completely out of whack, making it impossible to tell whether or not an app's current version is worth a damn or not.

    Then there's the ads. I don't use my little bitty phone to watch or rent movies. I have a TV. I don't need to buy books, otherwise I'd have a Kindle, or better yet, real books. These ads are larger than anything else in the market. I don't know, probably to help add to the number of accidental clicks they already get (because I can only HOPE people aren't deliberately clicking these things).

    It's ugly, it's slow, it's stupid, and it's demeaning. With the exception of you two, I haven't seen a good word about this new market.

    You opinion only alert: I felt that the old market was more user friendly. It didn't require scrolling up and down a large single page. Having said that, I'm not losing any sleep over the change.

    New market is faster and doesnt lag my X when i'm doing several updates at a time, but the layout is extremely counter-intuitive unless you're doing a bunch of book/movie downloads while looking for apps.

    I'm a fan of the new look.

    "Just In" is there but split up into "Top New Paid" and "Top New Free". Just hit apps from the first screen and navigate to the right a few times. I'm more likely to try something new that's free so I'm a fan of that split.

    Comments have been in order of latest for me, but I know some people were seeing random comment orders.

    I definitely agree about the books and movies taking up far too much space for a market on a phone. I will admit I looked through the movies list a bit only to see what they were charging and to look for new movies to add to my Netflix queue. haha

    I find nothing demeaning about it as it has actually split things up nicer for my uses as mentioned above. Mine has also been faster than the old market.

    I will admit that the movies and books can be a little annoying but overall I still like it.

    You would have to flash to a rom that still haves the old market in it.
