    I'm looking for a widget similiar to the blackberry home screen. (One that will summarize my emails, missed calls, texts and calendar.) Has anyone come across something like this?

    I really like SlideScreen, but they currently don't have a widget. So if I want to use it, I lose my other two homescreens.

    I'd also be open to a home replacement, as long as I have 3+ screens to work with.

    Basically, whenever I turn on my phone, I'd like a summary of all the business stuff, but then could still slide to all the fun stuff.

    Thanks - N

    Try Executive Assistant. It has the option to show Missed Calls, Emails, SMS, RSS Feeds, Facebook, Twitter and your calendar. You can also use it as a welcome screen or lock screen, and the widget can be just the icons w/unread count or with a preview.
    Hope it's what your looking for!
    Also, if you use the just icons w/ dxTop home replacement, you can put it in your bottom dock just like blackberry

    Thanks so much NYX - that's exactly what I wanted. Is the free version the same as the paid, just with adds? Also, I've experimented with different homescreen options. I have the MyTouch 3G which only comes with 3 homescreens. I've tried a number of replacements, but they all seem to lag a bit. Any recommendations?

    Again thanks for the advice on Executive Assistant. I've been looking and looking since I got my phone!

    Helix launcher works great for me. It also allows for static icons to be placed along the bottom.

    I believe so. I used the free for about five minutes and loved it so I just went for the paid so I don't really remember, heh.

    I LOVE dxTop because you can put the 3x1 icons only in the middle of the dock & you still have room for two more icons/widgets. It has four or five screens in a diamond pattern so it's extra easy to get to them. Also, if you want to root and ROM I recommend Gumbo 1.5c Bare cuz then you can use any home replacement you want instead of Sense.
    Happy Hero-ing!

    Here's a few pics of my current setup w/dxTop and Executive Assistant & I included some shots of FolderOrganizer which is the BEST organizational tool.
