    Anybody see this new home app? The UI is far different from the usual home screen apps. The main screen is a ring of apps with pop ups of information such as facebook updates and your bookmarks and whatnot. Apps come up on a cube that you can roll around. It looks like it could be promising if they streamline it a bit.

    Has potential. Was too choppy on my X.

    Its a little choppy on my d2 as well but my main complaint is no custom wallpapers? I must be missing something.

    I just downloaded it. Looks pretty neat. I'll have to play with it tomorrow to see how I like it.

    I tested it out and its a cool idea, but there needs to be a few changes: 1. more spaces in the circle 2. allow folders in the circle 3. display widgets of selected program 4. allow removal of all programs (wtf is that mixi thing?) 5. custom wall papers

    if it has that, then this will be a great replacement IMO

    I ran this on my OC'd D1 (@1ghz) and it ran fine... initial launch was slow but it ran without any major hiccups.

    I immediately uninstalled however....

    - Need to be able to remove items from the wheel. Too much bloatware in it (ie Twitter, Mixi, RSS etc)

    - ability for custom wallpapers

    - ability to add folders to wheel

    - maybe more icons on the wheel, over all not too bad if I could edit what's on there (two spots to customize? meh...)

    the cube for the app draw is pretty sweet however, ran great on my device and looks sharp.

    with refinement this UI could be a keeper for me... but needs works.

    Home replacements need to be as customizable as possible, this one is hardly that. The look is great, but the options stink.
