The iPhone UI is undoubtedly better, but I just had a friend with an iPhone drooling over the TP, using Skype over 3G in amazement, and commenting on the keyboard, so I'm not convinced of the iPhone's superiority in anything -but- UI. UI is of course a big thing, but if you laid a TP and an iPhone on a table and told me to choose one I would likely play with the iPhone for a few hours, then take the TP as the permanent phone. As for responsiveness, it's pretty darned good after installing the ati drivers and the sprint touch pro tweaks. Not as responsive as the iphone, but close enough that I don't much care.

i know exactly what you mean, I bought my brother an ipod touch for christmas. I played games with it for a few hours, surfed the web with wifi, tried to imagine it as a phone. I know exactly what you mean about taking the TP as a permanent solution. It feels like more of a tool. I definitely see where the mass appeal is with the ipod touch / iphone interface and apps though.

You mentioned installing the ati drivers. Doesnt the touch pro already have them? Ive looked all over the web and cannot find updated ati drivers for the touch pro. The htcclassaction.org/ xda developer drivers are meant for qvga. Which ones were you referring to?

Re: Iphone interface

With this iphone.cab, will I be able to try it on a stock Sprint rom? And if so, can I turn it on and off without messing with my current phone setup? Thanks.

Re: Iphone interface

Ok I'm seeing a lot of questions going unanswered.

First: The ati driver people speak of can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=357. It was used to get the hologram program up to a whopping, eye popping, face melting 25 FPS!

Now, about installation with this iphone app: It uses TF3D, so what this means is all the _manila files that make your touchflo3d work will be replaced when you install this program. People are saying when they uninstall, the manila files are restored, but the only way to truly make sure you can revert back to your origional theme is to create a backup folder on your storage card, navigate to \\Windows on your device, and use a program like total commander to COPY the files to the backup directory on your storage card. When you feel like you want to revert back, you can disable touchflo3d from your today settings, uninstall the iphone app, and COPY the backup files back into your \\windows folder. Then just re-enable touchflo3d within the today settings.

With the ati driver I just install and enjoy? Also, does this work for CDMA Touch Pros?

Did you try a custom rom? Sometimes by using one (depending on whos putting it out) they do alot of tweaks that make the phone faster and more responsive. I don't know much about the TP yet but maybe a NO2Cheme Rom might be worth looking into, not sure if it will work though because I don't know If he has TP that hes made a Rom for. I use one of his roms on my Touch and I could not be more happy.
