    [Home Replacement App] Sweeter Home public Beta is out!!

    Hey guys didn't see this posted anywhere here yet just wanted to spread the news that the Sweeter Home- Home Replacement App is now out as a public beta.

    Really great experience so far, it's a little over whelming but I think it's not too difficult to get used to. I highly recommend it to those that like to really customize their home screens (like me lol!!).

    This will probably occupy my time until the official 2.1 update comes out. So far it's been pretty stable, I did get some force closes but definitely not so much to deter you from trying it out.

    Head over to the Sweeter Home website for downloads, tips, tricks, and videos!

    Public Beta for Sweeter Home 2 is not in the Market, it is located on the website above as a manual install!! Just a heads up since some folks were getting confused. If you still can see it here is the public beta 2 download website: SweeterHome2 - Wiki - sweeterhome.com


    Here is my first attempt at a Theme it's called "Sublime" (yeah I couldn't think of anything lol). It's been uploaded to the theme server on Sweeter Home.

    Main Home Screen: Daily agenda with shortcuts, and Twitter


    Right Home Screen: Calendar and Power Control


    Bottom Screen: Music and shortcuts to settings


    I used was Sweeter Home 2 public Beta, and widgets/apps I already had.

    Performance wise, I'm still getting the occational Force Close. The only added additional memory load I see is just 3mb for Sweeter Home and 2mb for Slacker radio widget. I was surprised how low Sweeter Home memory load is. I didn't use any Pictures for my customization btw, so that might have helped with the memory load.

    Lol I swear to god I changed it earlier I don't know what happened I uploaded my theme to the server it's called sublime, I have the same name there lol. Also I use a lot of the "Pure widgets" in it so if you don't have it you could probably just put something different in place of it, Also I changed all my icons using bettercut not sure if my customized icons will show up. And the Homescreen's app dock uses the App Organizer Shortcuts, so I don't think they'll work if you don't have App Organizer installed.

    Aww crap it only changed the Subtitle in the Post. Anyone know how to change a thread title?

    I found it last night and played with it a bit, it is definitely different, with all the little scrollable areas and whatnot.

    This is VERY interesting. Great for those who want a non-cluttered screen and just want to look at their background. Definitely worth a look.

    I couldnt program a vcr, let alone write a program of any kind, but that was horrible. Installed and uninstalled pretty quick.

    You can download the apk for preview 2 from the Sweeter Home website link in the OP.

    It's probably still very early in development, but doesn't look to great yet. Force closed on me in the first few minutes

    I'll hold out hope though.

    I'm pretty sure the app in the market "Preview 1" is the old version. If you follow the link from the first post it says on one of the pages "Highlighted new feature since Sweeter Home Preview 1". If you want the most current version go to that link and download the apk and install it via astro or some similar app.
