    Hello everyone!

    Thank for all your help! I was wondering if there is a setting or an app for having multiple wallpapers or pictures for each screen?

    Sweeter home can do it.

    A little more info ...

    The stock home desktop does not support multiple wallpapers. And of the many home-replacement apps, only Sweeter Home supports multiple wallpapers. But the new Sweeter Home Preview 2 was just released, hot off the press, and it's not even on the Market yet. I just downloaded it, and I don't have time to play with it until this evening. But it appears to have somewhat of a learning curve. If you're a geek like me, it might be right up your alley.

    Checkout some of these videos on YouTube.

    It's totally a geek thing Sweeter Home. There's so much customization possible and all of it is in layers and layers of menus and options. Typical PC/Linux mindset. I will hold off on SH until I see a bit more of it. It looks like a really memory intensive home replacement.

    I ran it for about 1/2 hour. It ran really fast, but I must say, it is not for my mindset. Sorry to say that it's TOO customizable, lol.

    Kudos to the developer for putting it out there, it's AWESOME. But I would never stop messing with it if I were running it.

    Just to make sure we're all on the same page. Sweeter Home Preview 2 just got released today on their website. It's not on the Market yet. There is a thread about it today.

    Just downloaded Sweeter Home 2 and played with it for a while. Will stick with dxTop until I get Sweeter Home set up the way I like. At the moment dxTop fits my needs pretty good. But all that customization just makes my fingers itch to play! So many posssibilities...

    I'm still curious if there is a way to get the different wallpaper picture on each of the home screens? I've got a rooted hero currently running a 2.1 rom. Is sweeter home still the only way to do that? Or are there any options for us rooted users who aren't that tech savvy?

    I searched for a while but didn't really find much. Any help?
    Thanks
