    I have been trying to use any and all home screen replacement apps and none of them seem to be compatible with the droid.

    Open home - force close constant reboot
    aHome - drawing issues with the bottom of the screen and wallpaper
    GDE - same as ahome
    dxtop - force close
    sweeter home - i did not try it b/c it said it was only compatible with 1.5

    Anyone else having issues?

    I was looking at ahome too, looks like an awesome app, just gonna sit back though and wait a little bit for all the new "bugs" and dust to settle on droid.

    I tried aHome lite, and when it starts up it crashes and keeps starting and crashing. have to restart the phone to get out of it. I also couldn't find any good home screens, I hope they fix them.

    Also, I think that with the larger screen on the driod they could fit another row or so of icons/widgets. I guess maybe that would mess up landscape mode, but who uses the home screen in landscape?

    It doesn't matter who uses it in landscape, its just a matter of it must be compatible in landscape.
    Some home replacements dont allow landscape though b/c of how they cram icons on the screen.

    I'm holding out until SPB Mobile Shell gets ported to the DROID.

    IMO - Nothing even comes close to the aesthetic appeal and overall usability of SPB MS.

    I agree- i loved SPB Mobile for my 8525.

    They totally 'get' UI.

    I use my home screen in landscape all the time in my media doc...easier than holding the thing if I'm at my desk anyway.
