Wow are these to apps awesome. I have really been questioning how much i like my DX, coming from a jail broken iphone. Tonight i stumbled on these two apps and wow am i freaking happy.
Handcent: i can now actually read text message threads. The bubble style and not showing the name and callback number is priceless. After coming from an iphone i hated how i couldn't see enough of the texts at one time, especially when typing a text message. Plus the user heading, call, custom settings is so user friendly. Plus the popup quick replay UI is very sweet.
LaunchPro: where to begin...like i said i had a jailbroken iphone and i liked customizing my icons and layouts. LauncherPro does this with many more options. For instance i put my company pop3 email account on the bottom launcher and replaced it with our company's product icon(we sell a high end engineering software). The ability to remove the text below icons(maybe you can do this with DX but i haven't stumbled on it).
Im sure i will find out a lot more, but 2 hrs with these two apps and.im so happy. Once i start learning android programming, im picking up htc_ime keyboard(open source) and fixing this layout. The keyboard is laid out for athestics, not for functionaility. Its way to easy to hit period when going for the spacebar.
Getting more excited everyday
