Cube/TouchFlo vs. No Cube/TouchFlo

With Sprint releasing the Touch to the US Market in less than a month I have to ask, who likes the Cube and TouchFlo?

I have experimented with the "Touch" interface using several different versions that have been listed on this site and honestly I don't like any of them. Some of the issues that I have had so far is that the scrolling seems to be very touchy(no pun intended). The cube is awesome, but is it really any better than the HTC Home 6-tab? I can access programs faster thru HTC Home than The Cube. It is simply more efficent to touch icons as opposed to using gestures.

Personally I can onehand my 6700 pretty well without the Touch interface. The real changes that need to be made to improve the ppc interface is within the OS itself. Contacts/Calendar/Tasks all need major improvements.

Well i have been using eFrost's FTouchFlo. And it works flawlessly and he incorporated a launcher into it.

And been using Slither2006 flashlite Cube. Amazing work for one weeks time.

Yeah I tried that one too. It was by far the best available and please don't get me wrong. We should pay mad props to the developers who put this stuff together...I just think that I personally don't like TouchFlo. The biggest problem for me is that I like to hold my phone in my left hand. While that seems like maybe it wouldn't matter, it actually makes are huge difference for me. When I scroll my thumb blocks me from seeing the screen well and since we read left to right it just doesn't work well.

I know, I know...just switch hands right? Well easier said than done. I have been using my 6700 for two yrs and at this point it is just natural for me to hold the phone in my left had.

Maybe I'll tie my arm to my side like in Rocky so I can't use my left hand and then I can fall in love with TouchFlo as well. I really want to like it because the Touch looks so F'in cool.

I am left handed. And hold the phone in my right hand. I can never see what i am scrolling with the stylus since i hold it with my left hand.
So touchflo is a blessing for me.

Are these version of the touchflo "true" Touchflo like the one on the Sprint Touch?
I know I used the cube, and thought it was cool, but it's just a flash program running that's made to look like the cube.
I also tried FTouchFlo and it didn't like to work w/ Slide2Unlock.
If these programs are accurate representations of what the Touchflo will actually be, I have to agree w/ 360discgolf.
I enjoy the HTC Home better or the SPB Pocket Plus 4 I'm currently running.

Downloaded and installed the slither cab. Looks pretty cool.
I'm going to cookup a new rom with fewer features and play w/ this a little more.
I just figured out that if you added the Slide2Unlock to the exclude list, there are no issues.
Guess I should a thoroughly read the directions the first time I tried the FTouchflo.
