Ok. I was going to buy that anyway. One more reason to use it. –  Maciej Piechotka Nov 9 '10 at 18:38
@Maciej It's highly customizable –  Bryan Denny Nov 9 '10 at 18:48
@Bryan: I know. I will have my phone replaced this week to different colour so I will refrain from buying it till then. For sure it is app on top of my TODO list. –  Maciej Piechotka Nov 9 '10 at 20:19
