saying good bye to iDiamond(beta ends tommrow)

I have been using D-Man's iDiamond project for the past 15 or so days and the beta is forcefully ended tommrow . For anyone that has not heard or used it its basically a iPhone clone UI that runs through Manila, its easy to use and FAST, really fast, it uses very little resources and I really really am sad to have to wait for the next release, here is the link to the thread at XDA: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?p=3077363

ANYWAYS, I will have to wait a month or so before beta two comes out and I dont think I want to go back to touch flo. It looks great but its to flash and not that user friendly. What suggestions do you have for someone who liked iDiamond, that wants a fast, easy to uses UI for my touch Pro?

That blows...the closest I'll get to an iPhone is S2U2 and my iPod Touch.

The project looks far beyond promising, too bad the beta expires so soon, now for Feb-March Beta 2 release

Re: saying good bye to iDiamond(beta ends tommrow)

Its not so much that we wanted iPhone its that this UI was just amazing, it was 2 touches to get to anything, and it was very fast. TF3D just did not do any of these things for me.

What do you reccomend for a new UI until the next version comes out?

Personally, I would use either Mobile Shell or the old HTC Home plug-in.

Ultimate Launcher is awesome but a lot less intuitive to set up.........
