I have Open home, it force closes alot, and the dev is kinda iffy about if he can make it better.

I've been looking at GDE for an alternative, seems to be getting good reviews and the dev seems to be very involved.

search "GDE -skin -theme"

You'll find it. It's like 2.25gbp (~$3.40)

Here's the app link: GDE - The new home experience! v0.1.7.5 Application for Android | Tools

And the DL Bar: just scan this and it'll take you to the app in the marketplace

^^ That's the only one I haven't tried... I was going to wait for Panda's droid stable release seeing it's free, and also very good thus far, but I'm debating buying GDE to test it, and just return it if I really don't think it has anything up on Panda.

@Pope - have you tried Panda also? What about GDE do you think is better than Panda if so? Or not as good? ( BTW - Boston represent! ;) )

Lets go Bruins!
I have not tried Panda. I was trying GDE for the 24 hour trial and it really had everything I needed. I just wanted to be able to have customized skins (although there are not as many as OpenHome, I found one I like and more are coming) and multiple home pages (up to 7) I only use 5 and it is a lot of room. It also has a cool feature where you slide left and right and it turns it into a cube. kinda cool. Might as well give it a try. You can always return it.

You should try Panda when it's stable this week... it is free, and one good thing is it works with most themes from other home apps, like open home and dxtop. I'm liking it a lot and looking forward to the stable version... i might try GDE for 24 hrs though just to do it.

Hmm. I might give GDE a try. Sounds interesting. How well does it run on the droid? Pretty smooth?

You have a home replacement I assume? (If not you need one)

Depending on the Home replacement app its a little different, basically there's a THEME section under the MENU from your home page. You might have to choose MORE before you see the THEME option.
