You know what I'm not generally fond of? Apps that take their iPhone interface and just plunk it down on their Android counterparts. We have a menu button for a reason. No need to keep the lower navigation bar. But if you want to, at least update the resolution. Looking at this thing on my Evo, it was obvious they merely ported the device with as few modifications as possible to Android. Very specific iPhone-esque UI elements, and at a resolution far too low for many of the higher end Android devices. Which, necessarily, means it will also look terrible on the new iPhone.

Seriously, guys. I get that you want to put most of your attention on the handset with the biggest fanbase.....but don't half-ass a multi-platform launch. You waste your time and ours when you make crap like this that looks good on the iPhone, but looks terrible everywhere else. Either make a real, distinct version or don't.
