i just thought it might be fun if we all collab'd on what our fave features of cm is, for reference for newcomers, and maybe us old timers could learn a new trick or two!

ill get us started

DID YOU KNOOOWWW.....

you can change your lockscreen style from sliders to lense(sense like) and to rotary in cyansettings?!! WOAH;;;my fave combo is to disable any sliders and leave only menu unlock so my gf is like WAAAT HOW DO I GET IN?!?!?!!!!!!!! rofl

you can add a bounce effect to the gb glow effect when scrolling in menus, similiar to the galaxy line. the glow color changes with the theme you pick, i like cyanbread cas blue is pretty


what are your favorite features

Press menu to unlock. I despise the lock screen, so hitting the menu button to unlock has blown my mind.

haha..didnt even know u could do this.. AWESOME!

My favorite feature is the power bar in the notifications area.. always liked it when i saw other CM7 users showing it off. Wish it had more options on it.. or can you edit that 0.o that would free up a widget on my screen lol

The overall flow of this rom is awesome. so smooth for the most part.

even better, add a gesture to unlock your screen thats just a line from left to right.. "compact carrier label" (in interface/statusbar tweaks) is an awesome feature also.

Hate to sound all "me too" but it's down to the notifications power bar and the theme chooser. (thanks for the protip, poontab!) I was able to abandon a lot of things that used to clutter my screen, which satisfies the minimalist in me. The theme chooser satisfies both my short attention span and also my need for bright sparkly pretty things. LOL

Since I'm still new to Cyanogen, I look forward to seeing what you all point out.. thanks for the fun thread!

Yeah, I liked that feature, but was afraid of pocket dialing and other stuff.

I recently discovered Widgetlocker, and I'm running an invisible slidelock. My lady friend couldn't figure out how to unlock my phone, and if it wouldn't have been for my shortcuts, she wouldn't have accessed facebook.

Also lovin' it all. I moved my notification bar to the bottom in anticipation of ICS. See Tablet tweaks. I think I like it better there since I can get to it easily with my thumb.

Question... How are you getting all the themes? I'm running Build 3 and I still only see three themes in the theme chooser.

You can download more from the android market, just search cyanogenmod 7 theme on the market and you will find many. Also check the xda android theme section, you can find others not in the market there.
