    I tried it several days ago and had to remove it. I liked it, but on the Droid it was real slow. Screen refresh was really bad too. Flipping through screens 1, 2, and 3 wasnt bad, but past that the right side of the screen was going crazy and not readable.

    One thing I really liked about it was the ability to get 2 more icons on the home screen. On each side of the app drawer you could put your phone and contacts icons there. Nice feature.

    Once stable with 2,0, i'd definately give it a second look.

    Impressive app..the comments on that site are ridiculous. This is one reason I hate "ratings" of apps. You will get a crap load of idiots that have no clue about how long development takes to fix things like bugs that show up on one device, and other things. They make the most immature "I am a kid" comments that sadly many people read and take to heart and thus an app that has had hundreds of hours put into it with really good code but perhaps not perfect, is ruined due to ridiculous ratings. I think the Android store could one up the iPhone store by adding an age that is verified in some manner and then allow sorting the ratings based on age. I think you'll find many of the 25+ age ratings will be more professional and courteous and more inline with the actual app then the younger crowd that just want to reply because they spent a hard earned dollar on an app that has problems.

    I downloaded it already, and it does work on the Droid with several minor quirks: scrolling through the applications list is a laggy, no landscape orientation support, few wallpaper glitches.
    I'll follow up with my impressions later within the week but the bottom line is that it's pretty damn slick!

    I have it installed now and I really like it. The only issues I see are when the phone is horizontal. The wallpaper doesn't like up with the cubes right and the "Application Dock" widget looks a little odd. Other than that I'm really liking it.

    foolie and gardo you are both gentlemen and scholars : ) I didn't want to jump in that quick.

    I for one would love to hear a review from both of you after you have some time on it.

    I'm not crazy about having a laggy and buggy phone's though I left BB because of that. I still suffer from ptsd and am just getting over it : )

    If I had a camera that was worth anything I'd record a quick video of how it looks on the Droid but I don't o_o

    yeah Foolie it doesn't look too bad in regards to lag. Looks pretty smooth actually.

    pretty sweet how you flick it and it covered all those screens.

    I'm thinking once you start emailing, texting, surfing etc etc it may slow the device down...
