    Hey guys didn't see this posted anywhere here yet just wanted to spread the news that the Sweeter Home- Home Replacement App is now out as a public beta.

    Really great experience so far, it's a little over whelming but I think it's not too difficult to get used to. I highly recommend it to those that like to really customize their home screens (like me lol!!).

    This will probably occupy my time until the official 2.1 update comes out. So far it's been pretty stable, I did get some force closes but definitely not so much to deter you from trying it out.

    Head over to the Sweeter Home website for downloads, tips, tricks, and videos!

    Public Beta for Sweeter Home 2 is not in the Market, it is located on the website above as a manual install!! Just a heads up since some folks were getting confused. If you still can see it here is the public beta 2 download website: SweeterHome2 - Wiki - sweeterhome.com


    Here is my first attempt at a Theme it's called "Sublime" (yeah I couldn't think of anything lol). It's been uploaded to the theme server on Sweeter Home.

    I found it last night and played with it a bit, it is definitely different, with all the little scrollable areas and whatnot.

    This is VERY interesting. Great for those who want a non-cluttered screen and just want to look at their background. Definitely worth a look.

    I couldnt program a vcr, let alone write a program of any kind, but that was horrible. Installed and uninstalled pretty quick.

    You can download the apk for preview 2 from the Sweeter Home website link in the OP.

    It's probably still very early in development, but doesn't look to great yet. Force closed on me in the first few minutes :(

    I'll hold out hope though.

    I'm pretty sure the app in the market "Preview 1" is the old version. If you follow the link from the first post it says on one of the pages "Highlighted new feature since Sweeter Home Preview 1". If you want the most current version go to that link and download the apk and install it via astro or some similar app.

    This thing wants access to WAY too many resources. Why does it need to read messages?

    It has a widget-type display where it displays your SMS messages in a scrollable window.

    Watch the animation on THIS PAGE and it will make a lot more sense. For those using preview 1, I recommend you uninstall it and try the one from the website. Also, download a theme to get rid of the gingerbread garbage.

    Edit: Actually, they have some good youtube videos up HERE.

    Just watched a couple of the videos, one thing that everyone here can appreciate is that you have the ability to put icons anywhere. You're not limited to the 4x4 grid at all. I'm gonna play with this for a while today and hopefully get a screenshot or two up.
