    Looks like a fellow DX GB user installed and they liked it. Still a bit pricey, but man, the video looks incredible. Would like some more detailed feedback here if anyone else gives it a go. Review from the market

    It looks really nice, but at $14.95 I'm going to pass and see if the price lowers for now.

    unless its going to wash my car and cook me a burrito, no launcher is worth $15 when launcher pro, adw, and go launcher are all free.

    Like someone said in the Phandroid comment section: I will wait til it comes to the Amazon Android app store free paid app day....lol

    I did use SPB on my Omnia 1 (Win Mo) It was probably the best one back then too. And I dont remember it looking anything like this one.

    It looks pretty awesome. I might have to buy it and fill you all in. And I totally love my GoLauncher, so this one will really have to be one wicked ass mofo to be worth fifteen bananas!

    i have to say that is really impressive and i could actually see a manufacturer using that as their skin....but really as cool as it is it's almost too much for me personally. I mean it would take two days to configure everything

    Backed it up with TB and gave it a shot on my Xoom. Tried to install it from root explorer & adb install. No dice, install failed on both attempts. Not wanting to screw up my Xoom, I gave up..lol

    I'm gonna to keep the app for my DX it performs remarkably well and I love the look and feel of the widgets. It's not perfect, but it's a solid piece of software. Now i'm gonna be up all night playing with it....

    Decrease the price by $10 and I'll THINK about it. It looks really nice. I remember having this on my Omnia I as well. Anything was better than the old windows shell.

    It's SICK!!!! Watched the clip and it was sold. So far I've organized the heck out my phone and had the time of my life doing it. The spb widgets are really cool. Now it has froze up on me 2x. And im running the gb2.3.3 rooted. Ima a nb now, this is in no way an official review like u senior mems. be putting out lol. Definitely worth trying. It will keep you up all night for sure

    ^ This. Bought it, and already love it. Apparently gingerbread wasn't enough excitement for one day.

    Battery use is a bit worse for me, not as bad as I expected but there is a noticeable hit to battery life. Considering all the eye candy, I expected this.
