    Hey all I have a question or 2 about open home. From what I read you can have like 7 screens. Now if I buy this, is there an option to have the 7 screens or how does that work?

    Once I buy open home and say if I ever need to delete it, will it revert back to my default without loosing anything such as contacts?

    The settings give you the option of 3, 5 or 7. You can also select which screen to be your default home screen, rather than having the one in the middle as the dedicated home screen.

    If you remove it, you can default back without losing anything but the open home app.

    Open home is an app and it lets you install themes icons and fonts. When you hit the home button it gives you the option of your regular home default or Open home. You can also set open home as you default for the home button. If you uninstall open home it uninstalls all shortcuts etc. you have added to open home but does not uninstall anything from your default home that shipped with phone. I am sure there is a web page to take a better look at it. But you can have two different setups if you like. Your default and open home setup. Plenty of options.

    The only problem I have had is the rare "program had to shut down" error. I havent yet decided if it has an effect on the battery.

    and it gives the Sense UI experience....at least a large % of it. I wonder what the reviews of the Moment would be with Open home installed???

    PS... there is some value to this program over just screens and looks. I really like the task bar and the extra screens.

    does open home support all widgets, or only specific ones made for open home?

    Widgets are widgets. They'll work on Open Home/

    Yup, using it now. I was just confused since in the free trial version it only had a few default widgets, and not the others i installed.
