Need advice on Home products

I am currently trying Panda Home but I have seen some cool things with aHome and Open Home.

Can anyone comment on either of these (or others if they exist)? Also, is there any one app that is obviously better than the other regardless of price?

Thx

Check out GDE. Haven't tried it (costs a few bucks) - but certainly looks sweet.

If you go for it, i'm curious as to what you think. Pandahome combined with Apps Organizer is cutting it for me right now from a functional perspective...and they're both free.

Re: Need advice on Home products

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried GDE and here are my thoughts:

- Liked the softkey buttons. Reminded me of Windows Mobile.

- I didn't like any of the scrolling options. None of them were as smooth as the standard Vanilla slider.

- I liked the ability to have multiple (more than 3) desktops.

- Randomly widgets would not work unless I rebooted the device. The Google Search Widget never worked.

- This was the deal-breaker: It took several clicks, sometimes different clicks depending on the menu, just to get to my Applications Menu. This was so frustrating that I simply uninstalled the app for a refund.

If I could have mapped one of the Softkeys to display the Applications menu I would have kept the software. Why the developer didn't include this option I will never know.

The only feature that was worth much was the extra desktops and frankly I can use Folders on the Vanilla to store extra icons.

Still searching, GDE wasn't for me.

Richard
