    Currently in the market there are several different theme replacement applications available. This is a list of screenshots including links, prices and youtube videos about each home replacement.

    TO DO: Add screen shots with review of each including memory usage and other aspects. Check you tube for better videos.

    Note: If I missed one, please comment and I will add it.

    In ABC order:

    Notes from the site:

    With aHome, you can download and customize multiple home themes and have access to real-time weather through its built-in widgets. In addition, aHome's dock bar displays your four most frequently used icons, that continue to stay on the screen, even when you slide to other screens. aHome also supports third-party widgets, thereby allowing you to run your own!

    gotcha. I used it on my Moment, but now that I have a Hero, I do not want to use a home replacement and lose my htc widgets & sense ui.
