    Just want to avoid draining the battery any more. I tried PandaHome which looked cheesy and pixelated, yet had some great features (side docks and multiple home screens).

    If anybody can provide any suggestions to a lightweight app that provides multi-desktop or home screen feature I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you

    I've heard that the developer of Home++ is working on a simple "home replacement" that is just the stock home with more screens. Maybe you should email him.

    I like GDE, with unobtrusive theme it's very out-of-your-way, has cool transitions (from screen to screen) and nice app dock to organize apps.

    thats because you need to choose the default theme with PandaHome. The themes that come with it are horrible.

    You can also use aHome and openhomne themes with Panda which are very nice.

    First pic is PandaHome with an openhome theme and second pic is Panda with default theme (the one I suggested)

    PandaHome w/ openhome theme (realize)

    Is it possible to add an openhome theme with the default home screen or do you need an app like panda or openhome to install a new theme?

    I love the huge clock/weather/date interface but I don't need all the other bells and whistles that come with it.

    I got rid of Home++. I didn't like not seeing the notification bar at the top.

    If you long press the notification icon, it toggles the notification bar on and off. It's set to off by default, but it's very easy to have it if you want it.

    What do you mean low res icons? The icons look the same as they do on any other Home replacement? Do you mean that the icons at the bottom are too small? If so, they are perfect in my opinion. They are small but still clear and easy to hit. Plus if they got any bigger they would be distracting and take up too much space.
    Exactly what I was about to say :)

    I use Panda but replaced the background with one I preferred. I didn't like any of the free theme backgrounds. I guess I really don't look at the icons much and just read the text under them.

    home++ layout (sans notification bar) along with beautiful and pure calendar widgets. (mostly I just wanted to test the new screencap ability :) )
