    It's "Panda Home", a home screen replacement app. Here is a link and here's the QR code.

    Edited to add: to install, using an app. like barcode scanner to take a picture of the QR code here and it'll take you right to it.

    Yeah, like DH said. Panda Home is a 'Home Replacement" that replaces your homescreens and app drawer. It gives you a more customizable app drawer and more screens.

    This is my first time hearing of this also.
    Is it worth installing?

    I've been running Panda Home since the first hour I got this Droid. 3 homescreens isn't enough for me so I use Panda for 5 homescreens + the quick side pull-out trays. I love the quick trays because they're always there so I put a few key apps in there (like settings) so I never have to hunt for them.

    It's fairly energy efficient too and I've never noticed any system performance hits. I'm using this until I check out what 2.1 has to offer as native.

    I've read quite a few complaints from people that Panda or other home-replacement apps caused severe performance and reliability problems over the course of a few weeks, and were much happier with their phones after getting rid of the apps.

    I would avoid any of these apps unless you find you absolutely must have more than 3 home screens. (And since we're getting more home screens in the 2.1 update we're expecting shortly, I'd hold off anyway.)

    I personally have never had any issues with it, but with 2.1 anyday I would agree with Guurzak and simply wait a few days and check out 2.1.

    Sounds good. I guess I'll wait for the 2.1.
    Thanks for the advice.
