    The one thing I really loved on the N1 was when you pulled up the applications list, how it scrolled like a 3D drawer. Instead of the apps disappearing off the top of the phone, they scrolled back where you could still see them. Is there an android app so you can do this on other phones? I'd LOVE to do this when I get my EVO w/o turning off Sense or rooting. Thanks!

    yeah i know. i used LP and loved the 3d scrolling drawer, but didn't like it cuz of the lack of widgets, and my phone was a little laggy as well. i know widgets are being added to the LP plus, but still, it can't be that hard to create an app to make your app drawer 3D, can it? please devs!!!!

    That is not a feature possible in an app. you would have to make an entirely new launcher using the Android NDK (Native development kit). It's a lot of work and unless there is some reward offered or someone that plans to do something like this anyway, you probably won't find someone who is willing to just "pick up the task".

    How about a nice font switcher something that covers all txt on the device. I use sence on my Desire and am quight happy with it as it covers pretty much what I want when it comes to Widgets besides a few adds but would love to set my own fonts.

    You can display apps without icons in sweeterhome, but that takes a bit of work to figure out.
