    I went to a Verizon store to see droid charge I really like the phone. I think I want to finally give up my iPhone for android.. idk.. Anyway I walking in Verizon store and they had a charge on display next to thunderbolt and lg revolution I really like lg revolution ui but I like the charge looks I hate samsung android ui with passion I think it looks like a cheap iPhone interface. Anyway I saw different side of charge that made me one soo bad.. While I was playing I notice that on the bottom of the phone you could add more icons on the dock you could swipe to the side and get apps. Like unlimited docks.. When I open the app tray on the menu also notice that the apps were organized like the apps you would see on a revolution and I was sold at that point just waiting to get paid to switch to verizon and get the charge.. Until today I went to a kiosk where a friend works to try the phone ... I could not get the phone to look like the one I saw in the Verizon store does anyone know how to do that? I want the phone but I hate samsung ui I know that it wasn't root it either. I thinking about going there tomorrow to see what they did to it. Thanks

    Sounds like someone put a custom UI over top of TouchWiz? Not sure without exactly seeing it but check out Launcher Pro or ADW Launcher. They're pretty popular and they both have customizable docks among other nice benefits. Maybe it was running one of those two? FYI, these launcher UI's can run on top of unrooted, stock phone interfaces. You don't have to root to use them. Case in point, though I like Sense originally, I got tired of it after a few months and installed Launcher Pro on my Incredible which I ran for a long time. I only recently rooted and I'm currently running ADW. Both are pretty good.

    Definitely sounds like launcher pro, first thing I did when I got my Charge. Although, I didn't mind the Samsung UI too much, just enough to change it :)

    I've heard of it. Not crazy about the design. IMO, ADW or Launcher Pro are better but to each their own. This is a prime example of what makes Android superior as far as I'm concerned. Sense, TouchWiz, ADW, Launcher Pro, etc all seem to have their fan clubs - proof that one size doesn't fit all. Oddly though, the best I've ever heard about Blur is "I don't mind it" - LOL.

    A lot of it is personal preference. I've been using Go Launcher as well, and like it. I haven't tried the rest very much. That is, I have installed them to get a glimpse, but never left anything other than Go long enough to get into the swing of things. I might soon though, time to get back to changing things up a little, and I might give a bunch of things a go to see what I like and dislike about them all.
