    Home replacement questions

    Hi,

    Looking for a home replacement app, and I don't really demand much from it. All I really want is a few more screens. There is a catch. When I swipe my thumb to go to the next screen I want it to snap like the stock home does. I have tried home++, pandahome, as well as the 2.1 launcher.

    I didn't really like the first two as they did not snap to the next screen like the stock home does, they would slide and stick between screens (I understand that this is a feature of those that some like, I don't)

    The 2.1 launcher seemed to do what I wanted but my phone got really laggy when I had that installed and it got better once I uninstalled it.

    Any suggestions or helpful comments or tips on how to get more screens and have them snap like stock home does would be greatly appreciated.
    And now a Message from the Admins...

    I use Home++ and I don't have any lag at all when moving between screens since I have rooted and overclocked my phone. I did have the lag you are talking about before rooting, but accepted that as a tradeoff for 5 screens etc.
    If you don't mind spending lot's of time working with /on your phone, you might try Sweeterhome 2. There is a large learning curve but the customization is almost limitless.

    Sweet man, thanks, I read all day long here at work, good to have something other than the forums, not that the forums are bad, its just there isn't enough new posts to keep me reading for 8 hours

    wow

    sweeter home 2, just downloaded it, I think this is just what I was looking for, a bit intimidated with the options there, but I'm going to stumble my way through it once I get home and see if this will work for me, I hope beyond all hope it will, because this seems sick

    Launcher+ Beta only gives more home screens and drag/drop uninstall.

    It's made by Home++ but it's not a complete home replacement. If you only want extra screen it might be the way to go. I'm not sure if it snaps, never used it, but it's a shot!

    You can find it in the Market for free.
    I had a nice signature, but the mean ate it.

    @nerdbox,

    I tried launcher plus, it may work if this sweeter home doesn't work out for me. So far from what i've seen (which was 10 minutes of fiddeling around on lunch break) sweeter home will work.

    @seang,


    Thanks, again, if sweeter home does not turn out what I hope for I will try GDE as well.

    We have a winner! Great suggestion.

    I am on day two of using SweeterHome. This is easily the coolest app on my phone. I can make my phone look and do exactly what I want it to, awesome. After a few hours, I think I have my home screens down to what I want.....a completely blank screen with hidden springboards to launch app trays.

    I'm not sure I know what the OP means by "snap" between screens. You mean a "snap" sound or just the speed? I can jump around the screens in SweeterHome fairly quickly, but it doesn't make any noise. It also "slides" between screens instead of changing like channels.

    -Mike
