    I've seen screenshots where the bottom of Froyo (I'm guessing the launcher) had either different icons at the bottom (like email and messaging instead of browser and phone) or more icons (like all 4), I'm wondering how you do this?

    Are you sure it was the stock launcher? Personally I have launcher pro set up to look just like froyo's stock launcher but you can swtich out the apps on either side of the app drawer

    LauncherPro Beta with customized dock.

    One of the "must have" apps (imho).

    Yep I use LauncherPro to keep my homescreens tidy.

    Center just has fancywidget, right has some pics of the wife, left has power, setcpu, and juicedefender widgets. Then the SCROLLING dock has the app drawer in all 3 sets, one has phone/contact/sms/browser, the next has gmail/mail/seesmic/bloo (using the twitter and facebook icons) and then the last has maps/voice/music/market.

    The apps I use most often, and clean homescreens...I like clean desktops on my pc's too ;) The scrolling dock is nice because you just flick that and stay on the main homescreen and bam you got what you wanted.

    edit: the new dock background feature is pretty sweet as well :D

    I use launcher pro but it does not look as sexy as your screen shot is, mine is the classic button in the middle with most used apps on either side. How did you change the color and look. Did you theme it yourself?

    No, didn't theme it. Used Fabolous NexTheme over BB v0.4 and launcher pro. Added the dock pic from here:

    LauncherPro Icons | Custom Android app icons for the awesome LauncherPro home screen replacement

    The sight also has a transparent icon I used for the app drawer.

    DL'd the eye to sd card. Go to Launcher, preferences, appearence settings, dock backround, custom. Then choose your pic.

    Sort of the same with the transparent icon over the eye. Long press the app drawer icon, app drawer, custom icon, select the transparent pic and done.
