    Home Screen Replacement - NetFront Life Screen

    This is one of a series of postings on 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. These were all reviewed on my Droid 3. If you like this Home Screen Replacement, please post and describe what you like about it. If you do not like this Home Screen Replacement, 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 Replacement.

    NetFront Life Screen
    This replacement Home Screen is considered a minimalist Home Screen replacement. This replacement Home Screen supports only 2 screens, the right or “Home Screen” and left. Only three widgets (space permitted) can be added to the home screen. I could not determine if standard scrollable, resizable widgets are supported. It seems to support widgets from the app market. There does not appear to be support for folders. You cannot continuously rotate through the 2 screens, just back and forth The screen grid size is predefined and not changeable. There is no dock area. The app drawer is accessed via a long press on the ‘left’ screen. The pop-up app drawer uses a rotating cube view when moving through the apps. There is a unique ‘rotating carousel’ of apps on the home screens. Again, great graphics and when the app is selected and a great view of information (such as a display of contacts from contacts, Facebook messages, etc.).

    I had no problems setting this one up and using it. The "3D" activity was unique and visually appealing. I can see why many people will like this Home Screen replacement.

    I encountered the following item that slowed me down. It does not appear to cache your apps and these are loaded each time resulting in a slowdown.

    I also seem to have encountered a problem in that I could not remove apps from or add apps to the ‘rotating carousel’ of apps. This process was not intuitively obvious and even after going to the developer’s website and following the instructions, I still could not change apps in the app ring.

    The privileges required by this app are nothing short of offensive. I don't need a launcher to access SMS, Internet, etc. Personally, I don't need or want that.
    Do you like uninstallable bloatware?
    It takes about 5 minutes to complain and it's kinda fun. Let's not be complacent!
