    Had it installed the whole day. Pretty useful. I really like it.

    Yeah, I am definitely a fan. I thoroughly enjoy the way I can access my google reader and twitter info. Very nice design. A couple of force closes, but nothing major.

    Seems nice, sleek design and looks cool. Cant tell if it slows down the phone yet, and have to get used to always going in the app tray, but i like it for now. :] Would be nicer if it had native Facebook App intergration, and i would like to view my RSS feeds from NewsRoom app as well.

    I've been using it since yesterday morning, and whilst there are a couple of things I'd like added to it, I really enjoy using it and it runs really nicely on my Galaxy.

    What I really like:
    -The status bar, the way it displays cell and wireless signal strengths
    -Google Reader integration. I found with newsrob that I'd read an item and it wouldn't show as being read on my browser client, so it made things a bit crap, but with this, i can slide my finger away and it is fine.
    -Twitter integration is great
    -The font used is really polished and you can tell they put a lot of work into this.

    What I don't like so much
    - It can sometimes (rarely) crash, well twice in two days, so not too awful.
    - How it costs $6.99 to just remove the advertisement. I would pay for a couple of added features, not to remove a little, fairly unobtrusive advert.
    - Inability to change the wallpaper
    - It's not the lockscreen

    For me to spend that $6.99, I'd like any of the following added to it:
    - Wallpapers
    - A media player controller at the bottom just with << || > >> at the least, or for the wallpaper to change to the album art of the current track playing with those controls at the bottom
    - Facebook integration (but not so much, come to think of it, I really don't care about Farmville :|)
    - Maybe extra spaces for widgets, but I guess that might go against the idea of this screen.
    - To also be the lock screen

    Okay i was really liking it except for a few things.

    I would probably stick with it if it had a media player slot when playing music. I also like the above poster's idea about changing the wallpaper to album art when playing. But it was draining my battery like mad, i unplugged it from the charger this morning t around 7:30am. I went back to sleep until 1:00pm, and the phone had 80% when i turned it back on, which isnt normal for no use of the phone. And it slowed the phone down alot. I'll check back with the next update, hopefully it will adress some of this stuff because i really like this app.

    Tried it out. It's neat, but it's not for me.

    1) I don't use twitter
    2) There's no facebook integration
    3) It does a great job of burying the browser, gallery and dialer in a mess of menus

    I decided that while it looked really neat, I wasn't going to try it out right now. I don't use native SMS and nobody's told me if the SMS stuff works with Google Voice's SMS, and I don't use Twitter.

    I also don't think I'd like having to go through a bunch of menus to get to the dailer, contacts, etc.

    I recommend this program to those that want the information all there in one screen. Give them time to workout the bugs and add more support for corp email, calendar, facebook etc. This program is a power house.

    I downloaded the free version to test things out. I really like it. It presents the information on one screen where you can interact with most apps as needed. What's also nice is you can set it as an application or the home screen. I use the former and when I hit the home button, I can choose either SlideScreen, Home or GDE (in case I want to mix things up). I think it needs easier access to turning on WiFi or Bluetooth, unless I'm missing it somewhere. I might also bump up the font a few points or at least have the option to do so. Still evaluating and the developer indicated updates are coming on Google Voice and FB.
    Cheers
