    Beautiful Widgets has a very nice one but it doesn't display appointments. It does have quick access to the calender though. Add CalWidget to see appointments.

    I posted this in the main screenshot forum but thought I'd so here too.

    I use PandaHome but my dock bar and most icons come from OpenHome

    The four big green and orange icons are a widget that lets you store up to 8 apps to save space on your screen. Touch the widget, select the app, and it launches. You can change the main icon widget that appears on the screen but once you launch it only the original icons are shown. Example of two of the launch widgets:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Because the battery is charging it shows it percentage but normally this widget also shows the hours and minutes remaining. Very handy and comes in two sizes.

    This widget is called open search. It replaces the long google bar and saves space. Press the app to get the bar and keyboard (I use SlideIt, very different than a Swype)

    [​IMG]

    But if you press the small icon to the left of the bar it gives you other search options. Here's a screenshot of the default searches but you can get more off the dev's website:

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    I'm thinking of switching to OpenHome or GDE but I'm fairly happy with Panda so not sure if I'll make the switch yet.

    @Jennn: Wow! That looks very nice and clean! Is the virtual keyboard difficult at all to use?

    Yeah, how did you get used to that keyboard? I tried it for about 15mins and couldn't get used to it.:eek:

    I love my virtual keyboard but it is not for everybody. It takes a few days to get used to but once you do you can type fairly quickly. The middle button is the main letter/character in orange. If you want one of the side ones on the key you just swipe your finger in that direction.

    It's a free app and has a few different options as to the type of keyboard and setup. You need to download a free dictionary if you want word/spelling suggestions. The dictionary is not the best but it gets the job done.

    It's great for those with bigger fingers or someone like me that kept hitting the key next to the one I intended.


    Here are some key features of "Slide Keyboard":

    Heh, I don't know. As soon as I tried it I knew I liked it. So I gave it a few days and love it now. I can not do the Swype of Slide keyboards at all. They drive me nuts and I'm so slow on the thing.

    I used to have an Instinct and hated the keyboard which is how I ended up with the moment. I decided to try out this new virtual one just for the hell of it not expecting to use it but now it's my main keyboard I use. I still type faster on the manual slide out bar though.

    Great screens you guys... :p

    I still have like 2 or three screens to fill out. Can you tell me how to post pics to them and messaging? I have Beautiful Widgets and Open Home...Thank you...:)
    I've also noticed that my phone is now skipping a bit, not as smooth as it used to be...Is it because of all the new widgets and stuff now in the desktops?

    Yeah the screen shots part is easy, from your home screen go. MENU, MORE, OPEN HOME SETTTINGS, ENABLE SCREENSHOTS. From there I uploaded the pics to my pc then to photo bucket and posted the pics from my pc. I know I could have skiped a few steps but that's just the way I done it due to other tasks I was doing at the moment

    if you want pic's on your home screen just add the picture frame widget (it's already on your phone) to your homescreen.

    Do you know if there is a way to do a bigger picture than what the frame widget allows? Is there a different app? I'm also trying to figure out how to get a picture on there without a frame.

    I know they have other picture widgets in the market. I've never downloaded any before though so I can't say how good they are.

    i think slug (mod) had it out for him... because he told someone to use the search button. i dunno... the mods run a tight ship around here (even they're all heroites).

    nice screen shots (other than of course the red wings lean... :p) hehe... they're looking pretty scary when healthy... hopefully the blackhawks pick it up. :)
