like a boss!

my tip is to make your drop down shade look awesome:

settings/cm settings/ interface/ statusbar tweaks /compact carrier label. and then go to interface/notification power widget/ and select hide indicator and hide scrollbar. :cool:

rofl!

My tip is to use lock screen gesture to go straight to the app you want. It's awesome!

To do this, hit the menu button, settings, cyanogen settings, lockscreen settings, lockscreen gestures.

Once you're there hit the check box to turn them on and then choose build gestures to set them up.

It's really great. I have an F to go to facebook, a 4 to go to foursquare, And an S to open seesmic (a twitter app).

Is there a way to reduce the screen brightness by swiping across the notification bar? I saw somewhere that someone put that you could. but i can't find the setting and i can't do it
Yep, in CM settings / interface / status bar tweaks. But if you have automatic brightness selected you won't be able to select this option.

Also to piggy back off of that... it took me a bit to figure out how exactly to adjust the brightness. For me I just hold it in the middle of the notification bar and slide to the left or right to adjust accordingly.
