    According to a press release from Google, Sweden is getting paid apps within the next two weeks (finally!). I was looking through what I'm going to be able to get, and I started thinking about a home replacement app. So which one should I get? Ahome or Open home?

    And while I'm on the subject, are there any other paid apps that I should get?

    Neither, they both aren't that great. LiveHome or GDE for older than 2.1 or LauncherPro for 2.1 or 2.2.

    +1 for LauncherPro. Spend the extra money and get the Plus version. The widgets are amazing

    LauncherPro Plus. best replacement out there (possibly best one, including OEM such as Sense). IMHO, of course.

    Total newbie here, so dumb question alert, but where do I get launcher pro? I have looked in the android market and all I see are themes and fonts, but not the actual application.

    I love my ADW Launcher! Its*Free* and is simple to get up and running on. In the market there are both free and paid themes you can download to your phone. If your like most you will be changing it quite abit :) It is a good one to start off with. I haven't used Launcherpro, heard great things about it though. I will definetly try it later on.....but I still love my ADW

    Yeah, well, the thing is, the thing I was after with aHome or Open Home are the themes. I can't say that I've looked throug the entire market, but I haven't been able to find any good themes for LauncherPro, whereas there is a whole bunch for aHome or Open Home.

    Okay, so with LauncherPro I can just customize the dockbar and the icons in the dockbar? Can't I achieve something like this, a theme for aHome?
