This is one of my two favourite desktop replacements. This one is even faster in performance than Dxtop that I spoke about, this desktop replacer is currently the one in use on my Eken m001.[Also for people who dislike app drawer lap when it opens this is for you. Theres no opening sequence, it just snaps open.]Quote from the website.
Android's stock homescreen is fine; usable, not thrilling. SlideScreen, a homescreen replacement, is a wild departure that totally changes how you use your phone. It's a mix between Zune, MotoBlur and HTC's Sense. And I just made it my default.Instead of the standard grid of icons and widgets we've seen in handhelds since Palm OS, SlideScreen integrates information from various sources?Google Reader, Twitter, email, text messages, calendar appointments, and stocks?right onto the homescreen. It's sort of like Blur, the social-networking-focused Motorola skin seen on the Cliq, taken to an extreme. Each of these information sources is given a color-coded section and shows new information as it comes in.SlideScreen Android App Replaces Homescreen With Beautiful Information[On the left is the new *desktop*, each little coloured area can be turned on or off.][On the right is what appears when you push the menu button. An app drawer appears, both fast and easy with 8 favourite positions at the top]
In the middle of that is the app's namesake, a slider (itself displaying date, time, weather, battery, and signal strength) that can be moved up and down to reveal and highlight each of the other sections in full. Tapping the menu button takes you to a traditional list of apps, with space for eight favorites at the top. It's pretty confusing to explain, but it's really easy to use.
I cut a fair bit off leaving it at the main features. The only problem i have with it is that I cant sort the drawer into categories like with DxTop.http://depositfiles.com/en/files/nayslzfa3

I've been trying Slidescreen. I like it, even though I can't get rid of phone and other things I don't use (tweets, facebook). However, doesn't rotate with the screen (I'm using ecotox's rom). Any ideas to get screen rotation to work?
