TouchFLo 3D - Disappointing?

I have had a US Cellular HTC Touch Pro for just a few days, upgrading from the US Cellular HTC PPC 6800. I've been trying to stay with the new TouchFlo 3D interface but I really feel that while it certainly looks prettier than the normal "Today" main screen it doesn't seem nearly as intuitive or quick to use. Even things like Text/EMAIL/Missed Call information seems to take more time to really navigate to.

I was just wondering if anybody else feels this way, if they got over it on time, and if there is a good TouchFlo type theme that acts as a nice intermediate between the two. I will probably heavily modify the phone in a month or two but I want to try to get an idea of what works for me and what does not before I begin flashing the ROM and such.

I had the same problems with it. Isn't fast to navigate, slows down the phone, and its ugly (looks 10x better then the today screen though). I was using homescreen ui w/clock until I started using titanium with wm6.5.

I went back to HTC Home...not as pretty but it's quicker to use. And I don't need picture tabs and other excessive things cluttering up my UI.

Re: TouchFLo 3D - Disappointing?

I'm on Silence/Mighty's build and Touch Flo moves fast enough. I got rid of the photo album tab... it always seems to lag on that one.

I would probably find it more useful if it combined email and text onto the main page, it's really not all that useful on separate tabs.

I used Silence/Mighty and never had a problem with tf3d, in fact, I'll probably go back to their ROM soon!

Go with SPB MS - fast, customizable and does not suck the battery.
