    Is there an apk out there for the Nexus One 3D App Drawer? I'd love to have this on the EVO.

    LauncherPro has a 3D App Drawer in it.

    i know, but don't want to use LP. i'm happy with sense. just want the 3d app drawer. with .apk's out there for just about everything, i figured someone would have stripped this from the N1 and made it available.

    It's part of the launcher/home. In this case, you're using the one for SenseUI. Installing new launcher files would mean you'd lose SenseUI. Installing Launcher Pro is an option, rooting and flashing a ROM without SenseUI is also an option.

    I recommend asking around at the XDA-Developers forums.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=619

    There might be something out there, but based on my knowledge, what you're asking for isn't possible unless someone's made a SenseUI ROM and they've modified it to include a 3D drawer.

    Have you ever used it? It's damned slow and I wish they'd junk it, it makes scrolling up and down painful and also reduces the useful screen space for finding the apps.

    I like the ADW style of the app drawer. The 3D effect isn't really that nice for me. Simple is always best :D

    So you notice some sort of slowness or difference? I only have Launcher Pro on my phone, I don't even have the stock launcher on it anymore. Everything is smooth as can be.

    you can change the dock background to look like sense. Look in the market for an app called "custom launcher icons" I think it's $2.99 launcherpro also has a plus version($2.99) with Widgets, which support themes found on the market. Search "launcherpro themes". It's well worth buying. I used to use an Eris, & personally I found sense to be the least stable of anything on my phone especially the previews when pinching which quit working after a week, & the phone froze 3 to 4 times daily. As soon as I went to launcherpro, the problems stopped. It was like having a new phone. There's also a mod of launcherpro designed to mimic sense which you can find online.
