    Hey Android Nation,

    Just wanted to encourage you all to download the new Home++ Beta version I have been mentioning that the developer was working on some new things for it:

    1) A new LONG PRESS of the MENU key will bring up a SWITCHER which will post up to your screen THUMBNAIL SCREENSHOTS of each of the screen. Now, you can click to a screen without having to swipe through them. If you are using 5, 6, or 7 screens, this is an easy way to jump to a screen.

    2) LONG PRESS of the screen will bring up a menu item called "screens" that will allow you to pick screen preferences, including number of without having to go through key presses of the menu preferences. Quick access to screen preferences.

    3) Added a BROWSER button in the Power Strip which is configurable.

    4) For Majic users, back button can be configured for quick screen shots.

    Post up your comments on these additions and if you notice any bugs. The developer has really worked tirelessly to bring features to Home++ that we really want to have. And it's all free... free people!

    If Home++ has made your device awesome... for me, it's been worth every penny that I've donated and the developer has always been nothing but appreciative: DONATE (USD)

    Browser icon, sweet! The power bar is getting slightly more customizable by the update.

    I can't help but wonder how all of this will be affected when 2.1 drops somewhere down the line. The dev is great for keeping things up to date, ect, so I have little doubt that it would be up and running quickly. I'll kick in again for that cause, certainly. :D

    can someone please tell me where I can find this app? I've been looking everywhere for it in the market and I can't find it! I've got a droid so I'd really like to use this. I've typed in home++ and home++ beta and nothing comes up.

    Thanks, it's amazing how sensitive this thing is in the market! One small capitalization error.

    Thanks for the heads up OP!

    ninja edit: I just finished playing with it for a bit.

    Having the browser on the power strip is nice.

    The screen switcher, while sweet, is too slow right now to be useful for me (I only have 4 desktops so I get to where I want fairly quickly). I could see how it would be useful for someone using 7 screens though.

    These latest improvements are nice, thanks for the post. I agree that messaging in the scroll bar would be nice, especially if you can configure it to your preferred one like the browser does, so I could default it to Handcent.

    This is awesome. Now the only thing missing is different icons. Unless there is one that i dont know about...

    Either way out of all the home's that i have tried...

    Open Home

    Out of all of them they all have there Highs and lows. However I have more complaints with them then I do this.

    If you don't want the entire Home++ but just want to have more screens, check this out. It's the base layer of Home++ without all the frills:

    It's possible that since you're using the Eris, it's not available to you? Scan the QR code I posted. If it doesn't work then your phone may not support it.

    Yeah, actually, now that I think of it, OS2.01 is an API level 6 and I think that everything below it is level 5. So, certain things won't work... yet. Don't fret, Eris (and DROID) will likely be getting OS2.1 in January which is level 6, so all of these apps will work for you then. In the meantime, don't worry! You have Sense UI which is nice in and of itself!
