    Has anybody tried Open Gesture? It looks pretty interesting for a desktop replacement. Currently has five screens and allows for gesture shortcuts.

    interesting concept, i like that settings wheel they have. the rest of it, personally i could do with or without.

    i'd probably buy some kind of app that replicated that part of the functionality

    it's probably not compatible with 1.5 or something and that's why it's not showing up in your market

    I bought it recently. Overall, I'm happy, but it does need some work. The developer was quite responsive and let me know that the specific issue I saw should be addressed in a update dropping shortly.

    I love gestures and think they are seriously under-utilized by most launchers/home replacements. Itching thumb is another promising one but I haven't seen much development on that lately.

    Pro's: Well thought out, good customization of # of screens, icons, and shortcuts (you can remap a camera button to launch the gesture area. There's even a gesture area widget. You can create gestures for not only apps, but even direct dials/messages which is pretty awesome.

    Con: Not as accurate as I would like, even with the sensitivity at about 80%. I'm learning how to differentiate my gestures slightly to get better results, but it's still an area that needs work. I felt itching thumb was more accurate. You can tell it's still a young product and some areas could use refinement. Lacks the customization of ADW and LauncherPro.
