Hi,

Is there any way that I can get the Samsung Galaxy S home application on my HTC Hero?

I'd say it's highly unlikely. Samsung's TouchWiz interface is proprietary to them, just as Sense is to HTC, so porting it over will be almost impossible.... not to mention risking legal action over breach of copyright.

Oh, such a shame. I don't like Sense, and I don't think LauncherPro is that great, especially on the widget-side. Can't even buy apps in Norway (only download free ones), which means I can't get any paid widgets.

Many developers have realised that Google are cramping their style in this way, so it's worth investigating the "developer's website" link from the Market entry to see if they have a PayPal facility available.
