    Anyone download it? I love this app. It gives you 4 home screens; left right down up - more affective than the original 3 in my opinion. Plus, there are widgets coming out on dxTop (I downloaded the memory widget already). Its worth the purchase ($3.99 I think...), and if you don't like it you can delete/refund it. However, this is my personal favorite app and I think you'll like it!! Opinions???

    I've played around with it a bit (the demo) and it's pretty cool. I've got a few qualms about it though:

    1) Having 4 home screens acts kind of odd sometimes - doesn't always go the direction you think it will.

    2) I've heard (trying to find a link, I'll edit when I can) there's a major security issue with how the widgets work, so I'm going to wait on it.

    I just bought it and I LOVE IT. Mostly for the 2nd tab which shows running apps and all that. VERY cool.

    dxtop now has theme support, and there's two themes in the market already....


    Great application.

    The bar / tab is neat and I like the icons n themes but the wallpapers don't cover my desktops! Plus none of my widgets r working I think ill try open home b/c ahome states its not for the droid! All I want is 4 or more panels and a few cool icon packs!
