    So theres a few things that either myself, or someone in the community would like to see in the ROM, I do not want all these features, but some I do, so I am leaving this up to you guys..

    The thing is I would love to make everything my own for a truly custom Droid Concepts ROM, the problem is, I'm ONE person with a busy life, and this is just a hobby and something I do in my spare time, and for fun. So I do not have the time to recode and redo the majority of stock like the CyanogenMod Team does, they have a huge team and most of those guys are professional coders/programmers.

    So what I am asking you guys is would you like to see the

    CyanogenMod:
    Phone
    Contacts
    Browser

    apps included in the Droid Concepts ROM

    POLL BELOW, AND POST ANY THOUGHTS/SUGGESTIONS YOU HAVE

    I would love to see the Nexus S Power Widget (on the notification pull down) in this ROM! I absolutely love that thing and have grown very accustom to having it around.

    I also would like the option to remove the "frequently contacted" list from the favorites tab. I just hate scrolling to the bottom of my favorites and accidentally over-scrolling and ending up half way down the frequently contacted list.

    Otherwise, I like what you have already.

    If this is possible, I 2nd this... or at least an option to clear the list would be nice! I hate seeing ppl I don't like that call me (I use my personal phone for work)... though I may have to have their contacts, they should not be on my favorite contacts list! :icon_ goofy:

    Sorry, I've never tried CM. For some reason not much about it appealed to me (other than the occasional theme and a few details like reboot to recovery ;) ). Are these apps just customized versions of the stock apps and are you asking which ones to replace in your rom?

    I've only used the stock phone/contacts, so I couldn't say if anything else would be better. Dolphin and some other browsers require and are perhaps just wrappers for the stock browser. Since I use Dolphin and Opera browsers mainly, and thinking about trying Firefox too, I doubt I'd care about the CM one there.

    The pull down bar widget will be included, I don't know when I'll get to it, but I did plan on bringing it to the ROM, so no worries.. :)

    As far as the Phone app development, I will check into it, and most likely add it, it shouldn't be to hard to figure out.. ;)

    I will defiantly check into it, no ETA at this time though, as I'm trying to first get the DCSettings app done, and with a few options.

    Having the custom power controls widget is a very handy feature in my opinion!

    The screen-off long-press volume keys for previous or next track, and off screen long press camera button for play / pause. I use my phone as a bluetooth MP3 player in the car :)

    The only things I truly wish in a rom are the Galaxy S style power widget, the ability to change text colors and fonts.

    Would it be possible to put xeudoxus' minimum brightness patch into your DC options? I could apply it myself, but it's a one time, non-adjustable thing. The ability to make this change and apply it with a simple setting/reboot would be incredible.

    I wasn't doing the minimum brightness hack I had another plan but it would do the same thing essentially.. working on coding it now.. :)

    If you've found a way to dark-theme-ify everything on the fly, that would blow my mind. :D

    If possible Woodyman, I would like to see an overscroll feature. Not the GB orange glow one. Just a bounce back, but not like cm6 cuz it bounced multiple times. Just a simple snap back feature. Also, what do you think of adding a way to control scrolling speed? I know a handful of users would like that as well. Thanks for taking our ideas into consideration. Loving DC #7 very fast and great with battery life.

    Edit: I found that the overscroll feature in the galaxy s roms is quite awesome. Any chance that same motion can be ported to your rom?

    I just saw HTC's sense skins on my friend's Thunderbolt. OMG

    So how about it Woody, can you put real-time, full UI skinning in this rom? It doesn't have to make it into the next build... :D
