This is one of a series of brief postings on Home Screens and Home Screen Replacements. This review is based on the version that was available in the App Market during the period October 22, 2011 through October 31, 2011. The posting contains my personal view of the Home Screen Replacements. All were installed on my Droid 3. If you like this Home Screen, please post and describe what you like about it. If you do not like this Home Screen, then please describe what you do not like about it and/or what you think needs to be changed to improve it. Just saying something like “I like it” or “It sucks” provides not much in the way of information to those with an interest of finding out more about this Home Screen.
Moto Blur Home (Droid 3 Stock)
This stock Home Screen is considered fully-featured as opposed to a minimalist view. It is a solid middle-of-the-road performer and meets the needs of many people. It supports scrollable, resizable widgets. It supports folders, but the folder graphics are from a pre-defined set. You seem to be limited to 5 screens and you cannot continuously rotate through screens. The screen grid size is predefined and not changeable. The dock area is limited to 4 icons and you cannot scroll the dock area.
This works well for my wife and she sees no reason to change. For the period I used it, this worked fine. For me, I prefer additional functionality or 'whiz-bang' that this does not provide.
