    Hey guys, I haven't seen anything posted on Slide Screen here yet. It's another Home Replacement app that really "re-thinks" the way our Home Screen functions and is very "user Data" based. I think it's really interesting in it's approach and I'm liking it a lot. The cool thing about it is that you can set it as your Home Replacement, or if you're attached to a home replacement already you can still access it via "application mode" and functions just like an app. Really nice I think you all should give it a try. The Pro version's price is a little much so I'll use it for a bit before buying. It's from the creators of Retro Defense so it's very professionally done.

    Good find. I'd like to know how it runs after a few days up and running.

    I'll update again after a few days, so far I've only gotten 2 force closes right after installing. I haven't gotten any after that, works really smooth too.

    I like the Android OS layout....
    All of the other home replacements seem to keep with that idea... just customizations on top... Slide Screen looks to take away the entire GUI of the stock OS...

    Yeah, I know how you feel about liking the Android Homescreens, I like them too. I like that you don't have to set this as your default homescreen it will function like a normal app in "app mode" as well. So you can basically just launch it from the stock homescreen and use it as an app. I think it's a pretty neat aggregator for a lot of your data, in one app.

    You can download it from the Market. Just search for Slide Screen.

    I've been playing around with this for a few minutes and I really like what I've seen so far. It's different...but it does just about everything I'd need it to. And the interface is freaking gorgeous.

    Are you trying to download it via computer browser? If so it won't work, navigate to the site using your phone as it links to the app in the Market place.

    JonJyu I know you were using the SweeterHome for a bit, please post back after some use and let us know if it's more stable than SH was (I've abandoned SH). I'm back to stock now because it seems none of these homescreen replacements are very stable or reliable after a few days (least on my phone). Looking forward to an update.

    Interesting idea, but not a fan. No customizing in it. Also hard to get to apps.
