Default Panda Home

This is such an amazing Home replacement! It's been updated and should be working with Android 2.0 and its such an amazing app! Its only competitor would probably be Sweeter Home when Preview 2 comes out, but until then this is for sure the best home replacement. With it you can incorporate OpenHome and Ahome themes, then you can customize them, you can customize all icons, the apps in your drawer, set your wallpaper to rotate and so much more!

I'm not sure why I'm promoting it so much since I have nothing to do with the developing, but I just love the app, it completely changes the way you can customize your home screen! Give it a try and see how you like it, I guarantee it can do anything other home replacement can do and better.

Download it here -

I went to the market for it and still says support droid in 2 days. So does it support it now or still wait?

I'm running Android 1.6, but it is worth the wait if it still doesn't support 2.0

Maybe I didnt do something right. I installed the .98 and It changed/rearranged all my icons and didnt give me the option to add more screens. Is the .98 the latest?

Also agree -- this is a very good home replacement. Launches apps much quicker than default, and brings up the app list very quickly. Love it.

You need to download the beta for Droid support I think.

There is no "Option" to add more screens. They automatically expand as you drag icons off current screens.

Droid support is currently being worked on... the download link provided above is the current droid beta. he asks that, when you download that version, you email him with any bugs you find. I have been doing so for the past week.

I absolutely LOVE panda home. I can't wait for his stable release for droid.

Does anyone know if the developer is working on making the homescreen transitions more fluid? I was playing around with the GDE homescreen app which, although there are a bunch of things about it I don't like, definitely has the most fluid transitions between homescreens that I've seen yet (not quite as good as HTC Sense UI but close).

Yes it is. I have the Droid, do as stated select an icon by holding ur finger on it till you can slide it to the side of the screen then another screen will open up. You may not be sliding it far enough to the side for it to activate another homescreen... hope this helps.

I figured out I was doing wrong. I was on the middle window. To create a new I needed to be on the last window to the left or right.
Thanks!

I would be interested in reading through the guide if someone has a link or .pdf of it..

Do you know how to use the drawers or what they are there for I haven't figured that one out yet... I have popped them out but what can be assigned to the location?

Thx,
AD

EDIT: Figured out you just have to have the drawer open then you can drag your app icons into it.

Glad to hear you got it working..

I have only downloaded the HTC Hero Theme (Free BTW) but I like the default theme best and using my own wallpapers.

I just installed panda home and i agree it is great! I was sceptical at first with the background and icons but you can return to the default and still have the option for the extra homescreens and side bars!

If you got toe settings -> add -> Home assitant a menu screen comes up.
You can turn the DOCK BAR (sorry I was calling them drawers) on and off.
It mentions you can customizes drawers but it is in development. But I thought the same for the extra windows..so there may be a way to do it.

I think a drawer is the sklide out from the bottom where a Dock Bar is the side slide out.

I'm using the Aero Openhome theme.. btw, try the 997 version at their beta page that is labeled "Featured" I noticed a significant speed increase in homescreen transitions and everything.

Btw, I use a pull-out menu for direct dial and messaging shortcuts.. lets me get quick access to people I call or text frequently without cluttering up my homescreen.

Just installed .997 so far it's awesome. 5 home screens, very responsive, very customizable, and free! I especially like the fact that you can use your home screen in landscape mode without having the keyboard open, including the notification bar, and app window.

This is exactly what I'm doing. My own background, with the original icons, but now I have multiple screens (currently 4), and my speed dials on the left drawer. Great app, but there are still a few quirks. I just installed the latest build from this morning, but most of the time when I go back to my home screen from an app, the bottom arrow for the app menu will be orange - sort of like it thinks its 'active' - and I get a few weird vibrations at random times. But I have high hopes for the final production version. I like pandahome much better than dxtop.

Count me as another fan of this home screen replacement. Very fast, easy to add more screens to either side, and the organization of the pull-up menu is great.

I just figured out that you can resize and turn on/off 6 different drawers. This app just got about 6x cooler.

.998 is working fine for me. Noticeably smoother to me on the Droid.

I am guessing he meant "Smoother than .997, since that was the original comparison. Personally, I don't see a whole lot of noticeable lag with the new test version for the droid, .998. (if any). I love it. Can't wait for the stable release.

Yes I meant smoother than the last build. Still has issues though. Get random vibrates going from screen 3 to 4, app menu button is highlighted whenever I go to the home screen, and sometimes when I click HOME I get a blank screen, icons don't appear unless I swipe or press home again.

That happens to me in the new build as well as the previous build, but only in landscape. I have yet to have that happen in portrait.

Have you emailed the author about it yet? He is a great guy, and he works quick... but he still relies on our feedback to get it right.

Default Desktop screens?

I just installed Panda Home this morning and like it so far.

However I cannot figure out how to "add" screens. I filled up my three home screens (Droid). When I try to add more, the Add button is grayed out. I read somewhere that you had to fill your screens before adding more - but I just don't see how to add the screens now that my current three are full.

Drag something to the edge of your last screen as if you were moving it between screens. Tadah, additional screen. You do not have to fill your current screens to add more.

I've got a myTouch with 1.6, paid for dxTop, and just downloaded PH.

I'm loving PH!

Anyone think I should download a beta?

I tried it, and honestly I don't mind the default home screen.

One thing to note, it's not actually a homescreen replacement, as the regular homescreen still is on your phone and is still active. You're now actually running two homescreens, you're just only using one. The default home application rarely shows up in task killer software, but it is almost always running, so now you've got an app you're not using that never shuts off.

That doesn't bother me. It doesn't bother me at all that other programs might be operating in the background that I don't see. My phone doesn't run any slower at all.

Are you sure you don't have OCD?

You're folders and widgets aren't gone. They are still there in the stock home app. I haven't met a replacement that doesn't behave this way, however I do remember reading something about one of the replacements importing the widgetsAndWhatNots from the stock home app. I can't remember where I saw it or which replacement does it though.

I knew they weren't 'gone' because when I swithced back to stock they were all there. I tried dxTop first and it imported my stuff. I just thought they would all do that.

I played with it for a while but gave up. All the program icons in the tray disappeared. They were still there in the stock "home" but the pull up tray was empty in Panda. The only way to get them back was to uninstall and reinstall. About 2 days later, they disappeared again. This time, I didn't reinstall. At least for me, too buggy for everyday use.

Gravy. From my experience (open home, dxtop, panda home, home++) most don't. When I tried dxtop it did not import my widgetMaBobers for me. Maybe I hit the wrong button.

Have you written up an issue for the developer? He's usually pretty responsive. Like you I also stopped using it because of stability issues, but I did open some tickets though in hopes that he one day fixes them.

My only problem was I had inadvertently selected to use the Stock home as default and didn't know how to "remove all defaults" and reselect my panda home page instead. It hasn't been unstable at all for me.

This exact same thing happened to me! How do you change is so that panda is your default home theme? Please advise!

PS: did anyone notice that they removed the "bounce-back" effect when attempting to swipe to a non existent homescreen with the latest update?

Settings->Aoolications->Manage Applications (Find Home you may need to hit the menu key and set the filter to all) Clear the Default then it will give you the choice again

Click on settings, Applications, Manage Applications, Home, Clear Defaults.
Then when you click on the Home button it will ask you if you want to use pandahome or Home. Check use as default then select the one you want to use as default.

Wow! I didn't know there was an update until just now. WOW!
