Using for a little bit and very cool and smooth as well. And apparently it's also open source I think, for themes and such.



EDIT:

Their channel shows that these guys have made/ are working on other cool stuff...: http://www.youtube.com/user/NemusTech#p/

It seems to be great!
Had you tried it?
Thanks!

It is pretty great and has a bunch of useful features as well. Also, so far hasn't done any reloading while going and out of apps which is good. But it lacks landscape mode at present which is unfortunate. I'd like to see an explanation for the permissions (I always have concerns when I see free quality apps like this and unexplained permissions...) and some more widgets and options, but currently this is pretty cool. There's a lot to like about it.

    I like it very much, and is working great in my Galaxy S, but how can I set my city (Ibiza) as default if it is not in the list?

    Edit: Solved, found code through weather.com

    Looks terrible on MDPI screens. Please fix, as it seems like it has great potential.

    I love the look of it and yes, I am wary of the many permissions needed as well.
    I looked through the permissions myself, and I don't see anything that scary. Let me show you the permissions it needs here and then I'll reply with my educated guesses on why it requires these permissions.

    This application has access to the following:
    Your messages:
    read SMS or MMS,
    receive SMS,
    receive WAP,
    receive MMS
    It has access to SMS and MMS because it has a widget that can notify you of how many messages are in your inbox.

    Network communication:
    full Internet access
    It has to read network state and have access to the network for it's update feature found in the settings.

    Your personal information:
    read calendar events,
    add or modify calendar events and send email to guests,
    read contact data
    Access to calendar is obvious, because it has a calendar widget. I'm assuming the access to contacts goes hand in hand with that?

    Phone calls:
    read phone state and identity
    Pretty sure it reads phone state because of the notification widget that tells you how many missed calls you have.

    Storage:
    modify/delete USB storage contents modify/delete SD card contents
    SD card access so that it can write and delete backups of itself (if you want) to the SD card.

    System tools:
    modify global system settings,
    make application always run,
    retrieve running applications
    Access to System Tools is pretty obvious, it does have a widget to monitor running applications statuses. Plus, it has to have a way to make itself run all the time.

    Hardware controls:
    control vibrator
    It manipulates the vibrator as an option when transitioning screens in the 3D mode.

    Network communication:
    view network state
    Again, it has to read network state and have access to the network for it's update feature found in the settings.
    So in my opinion, if I'm mostly correct, nothing that scary and seems pretty average for a home screen launcher.
