not a bad home replacement application, i was not able to get live wallpapers to work, so i'm not going to use it, but it was very smooth (which is very important to me) and had some nice UI features. also i was not too much of a fan of the 'skin' that was used in the setting of the application. and i was unable to get the texting icon on the docking bar to use chompsms instead of the default texting application. Going to keep using LauncherPro until it gets a little bit better.
Using a Droid X btw

Well I took a quick look I'm not sure weather its due to it being beta but a lack of live wallpapper support instantly puts me off they give my device some depth.
However i do like the new UI the fact you can customize the bottom bar (but adding gmail just kept telling me that the app wasn't installed made me ponder as it's the one I use the most!). Its iPhone feel style is nice (not my taste I hate apples). Both bottom bar styles look a little 1 dimentional, it makes the phone feel rather flat compared to the apps I added or the rest of the phones UI maybe give it a little depth and icon reflection would polish this of nicely, and 4 icons of your choosing bodes well for the iPhone style adding 4 to the other style also would be good. If your a clutterbox like me then 9 homescreens is handy. But its just not enough to make me ditch sence sorry. However if you have that dang awfully moto blur once there's a few decent themes for this you'll love it.
It dose seem to me that the majority of the interface polishing has been done on the setting UI and very little on what you actually look at most of the time ie: the home screen.

It installed fine and looks good. There are two problems I have with it, though:
1) Nowhere near as many configuration options as ADW or LauncherPro
2) It keeps resetting my wallpaper back to the default grass one
It's a good start, but it needs some work to get up to speed with the two aforementioned launchers.

This is a very good, aesthetically pleasing launcher! Great potential! I did run into a few bugs and thought id make u aware....it force closes sometimes (not very frequent) when you hit the home button while in the browser, also the background goes back to the grass once the phone is shut off, and no live wallpaper support.....I have to uninstall, but I really like the launcher and will b sure to participate in the next build, I have a droid incredible and it sucks that you cant use HTC widgets with new launchers, I would commend any launcher that could get around this, u guys have some work ahead of you but i can see this being "the" launcher replacement for the masses, and if u have time once u get a more stable build please look into the HTC widgets thing?
