Have any of you tried Home++ (now available free in the market, beta)?
Developer says the primary reason he's created yet another Home replacement app is to allow animated widgets on the Home page! He currently has a flip clock/calendar which is animated.... you can watch as the minute/hour hand flips to the next number!
Allows you to hide the notification bar for a more attractive home screen (one tap on an icon at the bottom of the page gains you access to notifications, or you can choose to leave it exposed)
Built in Task manager, to kill running apps and/or switch to running programs
Built in access to all of your bookmarks, from the home page!
Pages are in a loop... no need to swipe four, five times to go from farthest right home page to farthest left page... just swipe left, and you're there!
Numerous other great features!
Negatives are, only four home pages (that's really all I need, but others may want more)
Still in beta, but seems VERY stable.
If you're interested, check it out!
