    Hi,

    You can use this thread to post your favourite Home replacement, such as PandaHome.

    Currently, I am using Pandahome, with a Chrome theme, thanks to mrthundercleese.

    :)

    All the best,
    SumDaii

    Panda released new version (v1.78) yesterday with exellent configuration options and support for up to 11 home screens, dockbars, and 3rd party theme support. I usually shy away from this kind of stuff but have been playing with Panda and the feature set is impressive. So far all of my widgets seem to be working but the icons seem just a little fuzzy compared to the using the original android home screens.

    I just tried home++ beta, and it doesn't really tickle me ;/... I don't need all the space and seems as though it would use more mem.

    To each his own but you probably shouldn't say things like "seems as thought it would..." without actually checking. The snakes will come out to bite ;).

    Okay so I installed the Panda one.

    Thanks, it's great.

    Are there any great themes you could recommend me, please? :)

    When I used PandaHome I didn't like any of their themes. However, it can apply OpenHome themes and I enjoyed gChrome and DarkHero. :)

    What OS version is required for Home++? I'm assuming that it's greater than 1.5, because I can't find it on the Samsung Moment.

    1.6 and 2.0 apparently according to their website. I never even thought to look.
     
  14. If you are using 1.5 as I am with a T-Mobile pulse, download ahome light. I did and it works perfectly.

    So the people that invest their time and hard work into writing and supporting the apps we enjoy get ripped off. Nice post. :mad::mad::mad:

    grow up with you three red sad faces lol.
    I didnt post the link.
    im sure you have never burned a cd or downloaded a song either, your such a saint.
    I dont condone ripping anyone off or downloading anyones work for free but anyone with half a brain knows how to do it or where to get it

    I agree but there is a time and place for everything and this is not the place. Here you have guys charging maybe a dollar or two for their programs (we are not talking Bill Gates) and the least we can do is support their efforts. Nuff said... Time to move on (see no sad faces. Are you happy now?).

    I tried Home ++ and didn't like it. I've been using PandaHome and like it the best so far. I set the icons and everything else to just look like the stock app then ik set my background too. Other than that you change the number of homescreens and hide apps in the app tray which is about all I'm really interested in in a home app.

    I can only speak from a Droid owner point of view.

    Home replacements are applications that run on top of the stock home so unless you take action, your stock home widgets and icons will remain unchanged. This allows you to go back to stock if you don't like the replacement. The downside is that the widgets still run so it will drain the battery faster and use more memory.

    That said, I think the best practice is to remove all of the widgets from the stock home when you begin using a home replacement. This is to reduce the battery drain (and other things) because home replacements do not actually stop the stock home application. The downside being that you will have to rebuild your home screens if you decide to return to using the stock home.

    PandaHome is pretty slick. I've been using three different themes equally. I like it. The only thing I'm not crazy about is its lack of screens.
