    Anyone play with this?

    I just downloaded it, and to be honest, I really like where this is going. Yes, at this point, it is very laggy and jumpy.... but its still a beta, and an early beta from what ive read.

    give it a try, see what you think. Im running KaosFroyo v34 with CFS v5 flashed over it. Cant quite figure out how to get it to be my default launcher, anyone help me out with that one? I just dont see the option anywhere. I know with stock HTC Sense loaded you can just go to Settings->Applications->Manage Applications and just clear the defaults of HTC Sense, but, I cant seem to do the same thing with the stock froyo launcher. I am positive this is something simple, im just missing it.

    i would think if you could not clear defaults then homeswitcher should work.
    its free on the market so worth a shot[​IMG]

    edit: just saw that is said it did not support froyo so nevermind

    For a simple, news/feed-based home screen, I'd rather have Slide Screen.

    On a side note though, I'd like to try TATHome when it's released...

    I think it would be much cooler as a widget than a launcher.

    Android Guys site is calling it, "Moto-blur done right." :rolleyes: ok.

    I do like alternative stuff like this, though.. so I'll keep an eye on it.

    But it's tough to beat Launcher Pro, in my opinion.

    I'm running the latest Tazz vanilla froyo and it won't run...force close immediately on startup.

    It's a little choppy and not very customizable....but a cool idea.
